Commenting Has Helped Improved My Writing

Weird concept, I know, but it’s true for me. The more I leave comments on other blogs, the better my word choices have become.

I always read my comments before I click post (it’s only logical), that way I can check for typos and make sure that what I mean is reflected within my words.

Simple things result in the biggest changes it seems.

My writing has become tighter. In other words (lol) my writing has become more concise and to the point. I don’t nit-pick my words, criticize myself for the word choices, or grab the nearest thesaurus to choose a better word. And I don’t over analyze my words.

Instead I focus on what it is I really want to say and then let the words flow.

It’s all in the focus and the flow of conscious writing. And it’s flowing into my everyday writing. Even while writing this post I can feel how my mind is looking at the words as they ebb and flow on the screen, making sure that they state what I mean with clarity.

So again, it all comes back to focus. That is interesting.

What are you focusing on today?
