The What and Why of My Writing

What do you want to write about?

  1. What do I want to share with the world?
  2. What kind of writing will give me joy and satisfaction?
  3. What kind of writing will add meaning to my own life?

Why do you want that goal?

Narrowing the list

  1. Journaling to share a process and a tool that has been very helpful to me.
  2. Autobiographical Fiction to share life lessons and also for doing what-if analysis by exploring how different choices can lead to different outcomes.
  3. Book Summaries to share what information about books that have had a positive impact on my life.
  4. Travelogues. I know I wanted to choose only three, but here’s one for the road :-)
  1. Blog Posts
  2. Books
