W is for Write - Blog Hop Friday

A to Z blog hop at Patterings.
Can you believe we only have a few more weeks of blog hop Friday? When I signed up to be a part of it I wondered how hard it would be to post regularly and whether or not I'd be able to keep up with the schedule. The more I consistently wrote, the easier I found it to be. In fact I signed up for an additional blog hop that focused on the Christmas season too.

Now as we near the end I find that I want to keep writing blog posts. I don't know how much my posts always mean to my readers, but I find they are often therapeutic for me. Perhaps that's partly why I write - to not only get words down on paper but also to be able to work through things I may be going through at the time.

For me... writing is something I thoroughly enjoy. So on this blog hop Friday, W is for write. :)

When was the last time that you sat down and wrote something?

Yup. That's why I write and blog too--it's therapeutic and has saved my sanity too many times to count. =]

You've done so well, Jodie! I'm so glad you joined us and hope you do for the next one too!! =]

Blotting can be addictive, can't it? And definitely therapeutic. Praying you continue as God leads!

Thanks for the encouragement, Joanne.

I'm glad I joined too, Patty. I'll have to come up with something in between the next blog hop so I can keep consistent. :)

We have something in the works and it should be ready to go right after we hit Z. =] We want to keep the momentum going! =]

I appreciate the opportunity A to Z gives us to be more intentional in our writing. I've missed several weeks, but have enjoyed the times I could join in. Loved your post and, for sure, keep writing! God Bless.

I usually give up blogging when the meme is done. It seems by the time we get to the end, there is very little feedback, and that's rather discouraging to me. I enjoy the blog when a topic fun or quirky. Not sure where to go with it though. I understand about it being therapeutic. When I look back at my "A" post and then at the "V" post- quite a healing! Hang in there- you can do this. :)

Writing is my favorite! Write on, Jodie!

Thanks for the encouragement, Nancy. I have been regular at posting... not always so great with commenting on others who are participating in the A-Z meme. :( Hopefully I'll soon have a little less stress and can do that.

I know what you mean, Karla. I love to write too.

Great thoughts, Barbara. Sorry I haven't been the best at commenting.
