Vivien Limon's blog
|A blog about everything...eclectic and a reflection of me...and hopefully interesting to others.|
|Today is my flex day. I work nine days and have a day off on the second Friday of my pay period. You would think I would spend that day relaxing? No, sir/ma'am. I scheduled four webinars and an online class from subjects ranging about business to writing. Some people would call that personal development. Stephen Covey called it sharpening the saw in his Seven Habits. I call it investing in myself, too. All of these were free. But I have spent some money on some classes and webinars, coaching, and even writing groups/guilds lately. I had to justify that. But I figure if the greats from Stephen Covey to the great writers do this, than I could and should do the same. After all, am I worth it? Is it the best thing to get better? Of course it is.
It is also a big deal to cultivate those talents that you think were given to you. I struggled to find out what purpose and passion God gave me. It was right in front of me. Now, that I've accepted the fact that writing is one one those, if not, the main talent, than I'm going to do whatever necessary to make it even more potent.
|On the first day of my blog, I thought we would have a little fun. So, I decided to make this post something that would give the readers a chance to respond to. This is my question, what are words that you like or are your favorites? For example, I like the following words:
This is just a sampling. I have so many more. The trick is using my favorite words in my writing. Do you use favorite words in your writing or not? Maybe if you have a chance to do that, you'll love your writing more.
