In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Million-Dollar Question.” Blogging allows me to journal out loud! I am currently writing a period piece (which I never expected to do). So I am using blogging (1) to increase my fiction writing skills and (2) to interact with people who provide an important measure of feedback, comments and encouragement. Also, with blogging I am learning a new craft and I want to share my love of creative writing with those who may want to publish or who just want to feel good about whatever amount of writing they are doing. So in summary I blog to build my creative writing skills and to serve as a resource for other writers.
