A postcard from Whistler-050

50th post.

In celebration of my Fiftieth word press post. I would like to offer the blogging community a chance to win a small prize. I have been blogging for about a year and half. Some days i really like it and want to create awesome content at the same time i have lacked in effort due to working and other commitments. I am happy with my journey so far and the stories being told. I have learnt in my short writing career to never force any material. My creative mind can either flow like water of a ducks back as he dwindles his  little webbed feet below the waters edge. The opposite will tend to happen however if i force my self to write.When i feel like i am creating content with no true meaning it is exactly the same as banging your head against a wall. There is no point and why would you bother to attempt such an act. I have also learnt that my writing must be genuine. Honesty is an attractive trait to bring in an audience. Honesty is also the only way to i like to write as it unravels the true self. On the other side of the coin i have so much to improve on. My grammar, spelling and overall writing skills need to develop. Lacking in these areas will never deter me from writing stories. In fact it drives me to only get better. Hopefully in the next coming weeks i can join a writing class at my local library.

  1. Your getting even more creative Mark.
    Next you will asking a local company for some sponsorship to fund competition within the blogging community?

    I must say that you put way more effort into documenting your travels than me. Often I start a simple diary but never get far with that.

    One girl I met years ago on a long walk was a painter and she painted a very small picture each day of her trip as a reminder. I like that idea.
    Funny but if I take photos of meals away I often remember the place etc easily.

    Good way to meet other local if you get to do the library writing course. Library’s are amazing places these days as they offer so much.

    Your mum should do well in this competition. I only remember her being good at Maths at school however she seems to excel with the written word to.

    Photos look good.
