Blogger's Block

I have a wicked case of blogger's block (though, at this point, the official writer's block hasn't kicked in). So I'm very thankful that April from These Words tagged me with the question:

"What's Your Favorite Type of Writing?" And I should mention, your favorite type of writing to do as opposed to your favorite type of writing to read.

And what a tough question it is. I'm very torn. I think I'm most effective at academic writing at this point. I have the whole research/synthesis thing down to an art, and I think that's one of the reasons I get so nervous about the idea of trying to freelance and write creatively. While it is wayyy outside my comfort zone, I think I'll ultimately be OK. I just like writing...and I'm pretty good at it. Like all things, it takes practice.

I think my favorite type of writing at this point in time is review writing. While I don't know why anyone would want my opinion (and they may not), I love reading a piece and--hopefully--spreading my admiration for it. And, quite honestly, I like getting free books. SCORE!

Next up: creative writing. I'm going to dive headlong into my novel this summer

I'll tag Heather from A High and Hidden Place and Bookfool from Bookfoolery and Babble!


  1. Well, honestly, as someone who has been blessed with the opportunity to read your creative writing, I'd say you're pretty damn good. JMHO :)

    I'll have to think on that a bit.

  2. i think it's so cool that you have the opportunity to write reviews. Believe me, I would love to give my opinion on many things ;O)

  3. Sorry to hear you are moving to NC, but I guess with Internet you are never far away. I'm planning on going to DMA for the Zusak on Sunday. I'll be the one looking lost.

  4. Oooh, I want to read some of your creative writing, one day! Have fun with that. And, good luck on the move. I'm kind of sad you'll be farther away; I was hoping to meet up with you in IKEA, one day. Darn.

    I love your reviews and your blog entries. They're wonderful.

    Thanks for nominating me. I feel all loved and special. LOL


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Blogger has been a beast lately, so I hope you do not have any troubles leaving your thoughts.
