Back in the Saddle Again!

I'm back from Virginia (it was cold but great), recovered from migraine headaches (for now), the flu, and have been tagged with a meme! Life is good!

Harmony Cornwell of Writer in the Making tagged me with a meme that asks, "What is your favorite type of writing?"

I really enjoy all kinds of writing, but from a professional standpoint I enjoy article writing the most. I have always liked the educational element of researching a topic, learning everything you can about something, and then turning it into your own original piece. It's so exciting when words, sentences, transitions, and information all come together smoothly and coherently. It's creativity and it's fun!

From a completely personal standpoint I would say I enjoy journaling the most. There is nothing quite so cathartic as writing down one's thoughts and feelings at the end of the day. It helps you to know who you are and understand how you really feel about things. Not only that but I love being able to look back through my journals and remember my past. Memories are recorded there that I would not have recalled had I not written them down. My own journaling rule is to never write about silly disagreements I have had with my husband. If I need to do that I write it on a separate sheet of paper and then throw it away. I need only to remember the greatest highlights of my life, marriage, and family--not the negative stuff!

I may have expanded a little more on this meme, but it was too hard to completely narrow it down to one kind of writing.

I am tagging:

Sylvia C of Sylvia's Insight
Kathy Kehrli of Screw You!

Robin of Robin's Writing Now

I missed you all and appreciate your loyalty! Sorry it took me so long to get back into the groove of things--I wasn't counting on the flu! Geesh! I will be back in a day or two with another blog for aspiring writers!

Take care and see ya soon!

Sorry to hear about that flu stuff.

Thanks for the tag. I should be at it tomorrow!

MAKE sure you are fully recovered!

Thank you, Sylvia! I am happy to say I am fully recovered. I rarely get sick--just those darned migraines! Fortunately, it was a quick bug!

Can't wait to read your answer!

Take care!

Okay, it's up!

I kinda started rambling a bit about life, but the meme stuff is at the bottom.

Too bad that one of our shared traits is migraines!

Maybe, someday we will both be "ex-sufferers" together!

Have a great weekend.
