As some of you know I have been doing a lot of writing on the blogs. Some of that work is for my 2 writing groups and the rest has been all the prompts I found on here.
For the writing groups I have been doing longer work and non-fiction. Someone suggested that I should use these writings and write a memoir. That interests me more than poetry books, but who knows what the future brings. I may never get that complete need to be published. I never know with my Bipolar Disorder where my interests will get so interesting that I follow through.
So with all the writing for the 2 groups and belonging to one, possibly 2 reading groups if the one here where I live in the senior high rise gets going, I have to cut down on all the prompt writing I am doing.
Right now I am obsessed with writing, leading towards a manic phase. I am sleeping less than normal which isn’t much to begin with. My psychiatrist is slightly concerned, but doesn’t feel I am a serious manic phase at this point. YET anyhow.
I am going to research memoir writing first. I have no idea what they consist of except that they are not full autobiographies. I believe that I have several things that I could use possibly to write one, but I am clueless which leads to lots of research.
That being said I am going to slow down probably on all the prompt writing although rewriting old posts that could possibly work for a memoir I will still work on.
Things change abruptly in my life and my whole idea may change and I might go back to poetry writing. I just don’t know.
