Writing with the Door Closed

For my poetry, I find the words and rhythm work best if I do it old school with pen and ink. Then I rekey.

For short fiction, I sit with a word processor with limited internet connection, pour it all out, then edit before a copy/paste.

For devotional/inspirational/op ed, it usually happens natively in the blogging medium.

Longer fiction tends to tumble around in my head for weeks before I sketch it out and serialize it in a word processing file. Then I sit on the completed work for a day or two, try to edit for preciseness and economy and eliminating story inconsistencies, then copy-paste.

I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a writer’s circle, but that would be something interesting to try.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
