Writing Blog 101, Your Personality on the Page

Today’s Prompt: We all have anxieties, worries, and fears. What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears.

Today’s Twist: Write this post in a style distinct from your own.

Earlier in Writing 101, we talked about voice: that elusive element that sets you apart from every other writer out there. Style, however, is different. Your writing style might affect your voice, but ultimately style and voice aren’t the same thing.

You might prefer long and complex sentences, or sentences with a lot of commas and layers building upon each other, or perhaps intentional run-ons and thoughts bleeding into the next and no pauses and lots of imagery and never-ending moments that run onto the next page.

Or, you might write short sentences. Fragments, even. Simple prose.

Anxieties, worries and fears . . . being a mother that is something that we are constantly thinking about something that could be happening to our children.  More so when they start going out of your safety net in the world.

From the time they are born, worrying about if we are doing everything right like burping correctly, knowing which cry is just for attention and not to worry about it.  Being first time parents is an interesting experience, you get information from the pediatrician and then friends and family have different advice and sometimes contradicting what the pediatrician told you.  And of course, knowing how you are going to raise your child and that it is your decision and no one else’s and being solid in your choices.

And once you survive that here comes daycare/pre-school where you allow someone else to take care of your child.  The first week you constantly worry something is going to happen . . . falling, choking, not stop crying after you leave  . . . I could go on and on about that.  Oh that isn’t even starting to looking to finding the right pre-school within your budget and hoping you did enough looking before you make a decision.

Though I am probably more anal retentive on research and checking everything than most reasonable people, but I’m wired that way and sometimes too much is better than not enough in some cases.

However when your child goes to public school the worrying increases as there are so many unknowns and then of course the possible bullies who may target your child, having learning issues and many other things.

I can say that even with all of that, you just have to have some trust and be the best role model you can and pray that that makes the difference in their life.

So far I am proud of my daughter in making the right decisions most of the time, which is the best I can hope for.
