This blog is for helping writers to develop the habit of regular writing as well as an authentic writing style that comes out of good self-understanding. It’s easy to write when you feel inspired, but we all know inspiration is an up-and-down affair. It’s so important – if ever you want to accomplish something substantial with your writing – to get beyond the confines of inspiration and into the realm of a ‘calling’ that calls for discipline. This programme offers to help you with that. As a blog it unfolds week by week … but if you have only just discovered it, do click on ‘Becoming Acquainted’, then search for Week 1, so that you can work through from the beginning. Each week there is some input and seven suggested exercises, one for each day. If you are interested in being mentored in the development of your writing see www.youcanwrite.co.za which describes a possible programme.
