So far in my blogging life I have managed to escape the bulk of these meme things that float around every now and again, but then this summer I got hit with a Thinking Blog Award. That was nice and quite easy; all I had to do was whack the thing up on my blog and pass it on. Then came the Schmooze award, again, not too much trouble, whack it up, pass it on. But now there is a new one floating around, one that instantly made me go GAH! Scarlett has asked me to divulge 5 strengths I have as Writer. This meme is super difficult because not only do I have to think, but I also have to be positive about myself. I also think that I’m still learning, so while I have chosen 5 things, I also hope that I will continue to learn and improve. So without further ado 5 strengths:
Dialogue: Apparently I write good dialogue.
Criticism: Like art, a piece of writing is never finished, so good constructive criticism is always helpful and I’m very open to it.
Solitary Confinement: I’m quite into my own company, and you need to be able to spend a fair amount of time on your own if you’re going to sit down and write for long periods of time.
Observation: I like people watching and listening. Some of the classic little snippets that I observe end up in my writing, with my own little twist of course.
Motivation/Addiction: Just don’t seem to be able to stop doing it. Well that’s got to be a strength hasn’t it?
And now I need to choose 5 people. The difficult bit with that is choosing 5 people who haven’t already been picked, so sorry if you’ve already been tagged but here goes:
Jude at Jude’s Writing Corner
Seamus at Shameless Words
David at Witnessing I am
Sam at Sam’s Spot
Marie at Deep Thinker
Oh and while I’m at it, Seamus has started something up at The Shameless Writing Circle. Go and have a wee peek.
