Ten Thousand Words.

Behind the scenes.

{I found these prompts via Stephanie}

1. What am I working on?

A variety of things, and honestly, probably too many. I can't seem to finish anything I've started because I've been so scatterbrained lately. I will, though, I will. I like to think of this as a good thing - my mind is busy, busy, busy with ideas. I have feature ideas. I have a (gasp) link up idea. Then there are the posts I've been lining up in my draft folder, all of which fall under the category: I'm 27, single, and fuck if this isn't the most frustrating thing I've ever done.

 2. Why do I write what I do?

Can you believe that I started this blog because I wanted to document moving into my house? Everything was gutted, and I was beyond excited to share the before and after photos. I did one before/after post of the living room, and that has since been deleted because I no longer own any of the furniture in the photos. But somewhere between wanting to be the next DIY blogger (which is comical, since I'm constantly saying "DYI" on accident) and now, I think I've found my groove.

I'm not getting married, I'm not having a baby, I'm not going to write about fitness, or show you what I wore all week. I write to make you laugh. I write because it's something - in one way or another - that I've always done. Maybe I'm one of your hate reads, I don't know. Actually, I do know. I check my stats, and I see you.

3. How does your writing process work?

My theory is this: if you have to force a blog post, it's going to be shit. I used to abide by the Monday through Friday, no exception, no excuses blogging rule. Until I realized that writing a post for the sake of writing a post was not the way to go. Now if manage to post three days a week, it's a miracle.

Sometimes I sit on an idea for weeks before I start to flesh it out. FYI - "flesh it out" is a disgusting phrase, and I rarely use it, but it applies here. Sometimes an idea comes to me, and 30 minutes later, I have the entire post written. I can't predict the process, I just have to go with it whenever an idea comes.

Now it's your turn. Answer these questions here, or write your own post. Unless you don't have a blog, in which case, get out of here, Kelsey.
