I am a failure...yes, I know that is harsh but it is true. I failed at NaBloPoMo. Let's face it, to start I am tired and busy. Also, I am not a great writer and at times not even a good writer. I have a hard time writing about my days in a detailed way let alone an interesting way.
I have only done a year and a half of college. I am a college drop out, I blame it on Costco and stats. My first year of college I lived at home and drove 45 minutes into school every day. I did well in my classes but I could not write papers. I was taught the 'hamburger' essay in like grade 7 if not earlier. This style of easy is an intro and conclusion -the buns and then three paragraphs in the middle - the meat, lettuce and tomato. For the life of me, I can not get past this style and find if very difficult to write more than 5 paragraphs. This as you may know does not fly in college, even if the paragraph is long and I had done lots of research.
I took up blogging because I love blogs and I enjoy how even if no one reads what you write in a small way you are a published author. To me that is cool. I am also trying to hone my writing skills and learn the art of describing because I do have aspirations to go back to school one day.
I sometimes wonder what an experienced writer or anyone who has a good grasp of grammar must think of my writing. I don't think about it for long because then someone starts screaming or pulling hair or I fall asleep. Right now my main goal in bettering my skills is to remember to spell check and proof read.
