Are you a writer?
How do you know?
Process: I began with Hamlet and “To Be or Not To Be”. I was thinking that it could easily be re-written as “To Write or Not To Write” but then I literally ran out of steam. Scratch that idea! I remembered when Julieanne (@jarhartz) wrote about being a writer here and then I searched my own posts and found a slice from last year that also answered the same question here. But I wanted a clean, crisp “pattern” so I started writing with a bit of Seuss or Yoda in my brain. I easily drafted 15 statements and then went back to add a title. Then I began revising in the form of “re-ordering” the sentences. I was satisfied with the content, but I wasn’t happy with the format. That led me to breaking the sentences into two lines with the second part indented and then creating stanzas. Then I had to find pictures for the top of the post, tag, proof and then publish!
