The Deliberate Writer is a writer’s blog. Meaning, it’s a platform I created to dialog with writers–, or anyone else who is interested in reading about writing.
[yawn–. I know…]
But since creating this category, I often feel like I’ve constructed my own box or barrier around my freedom of expression.
This inflexible category (of my own making, I admit) stunts my thoughts. Sometimes I want to write about other things I’m passionate about, but I can’t. I can’t because the topic doesn’t concern the craft of writing or provide writing advice.
So, this is my new declaration.
I don’t want to feel constrained or confined with my own blog anymore. I’ve decided expand my blog topics. If I want to blog about public relations or my latest bad hair cut or even fried chicken, I want to be able to do it. No, I WILL do it!
Now that I got that off my chest, I want to iterate: The Deliberate Writer is a writer’s blog. So, even though I may write about my job, my unmanageable hair or food, I’ll likely somehow relate it all back to the joy of writing. Because, Oh, Zach–. I’m a writer. That’s what I am. What I do. [tap, tap] Ahh!
