Finding My Blog Audience

Who-is-your-audience
Who are you?

The audience I want to target are people who love writing and reading both stories and poetry. In addition, journalers may enjoy my journal page where I share events and insights about my life from time to time. I want to share my experiences in developing my fiction short story writing and my dabbling in poetry. I am also interested in meeting other writers and finding out their struggles and triumphs. I want an audience who will give me descriptive feedback about my writing from time to time in the form of comment or question and I too would like to return the favour. I would find it most beneficial to  be part of a writers’ workshop online like the ones I have participated in various courses and the ones I have develop for my elementary students in my classroom. The Daily Post is one of my favourite blogs and I enjoy participating in the prompts from time to time. I want people who enjoy networking with other writers and like to encourage other writers to keep writing. Thus my audience would be adults with a passion for the written word.

Writer’s Block—Oh no!!!

I am experiencing writer’s block.  Usually I don’t write because of work and family distractions and Netflix addictions. I visited Brainstorming Block.  The author at the website suggested exercise and just writing any drivel. But how is it that I who admittedly have a lot to say can’t think of an entire thing right now? More internet research helped me to stumble upon this blog post @io9 10 types of Writer’s Block. This author claims there are 10 types and you have to define them in order to know what to do to get over them.   Okay so I looked through the ten types. I got nothin’. Still. I haven’t even become enough of a writer to have at least 7 of them! Another google search and I find many, many images of writer’s block. Here is one linked to a pretty neat writer’s blog. Nickety recommends typing past your writer’s block….start a blog about it! We think alike. Only I started a post…a lower level of commitment.

Okay. I have written for 30 minutes. It may be drivel.  But I met my writing committment today. Yeah!

The coffee pot is calling…and my dog is giving me the lets walk now look. This is my exercise solution to my writer’s block and its dog approved

. Lets hope something comes to mind.
