My Writing Process

A few sentences in, my fingers stopped typing as my mind stops. Frustrated, I went to talk to my sister.

Me: I’m trying to write about how I need to get one clear idea before I start writing.

Sis: Why’s that?

Me: Because.. Hmmm I’m not sure.

My mind: How did I get to that conclusion?

Me: Because every time I’m writing before I’m clear about the idea, I get lost in the middle of writing the article. If I’m lost, I’m sure people reading it won’t get what I’m trying to say too. Plus, one idea is like a compass, pointing me in the right direction when I drift away or get lost.

Sis: K.

I continue writing my article, now that I have one main idea that I can focus on.
