Do you ever ‘stretch’ i.e. expand your horizons by writing outside your comfort zone? If not, why?
Randomness Inked is my personal safe space. Here, I can be myself. So most of my posts are in my comfort zone only. I so experiment with writing styles sometimes. But that is only when I feel that I will find it interesting.
I began this blog with poems, and now I have moved on to write longer posts, letters, and several other things.
Dr Tanya’s Blogging Insights series is one of those writing out of the comfort zone writing. I never wanted my blog to become a course. I am no teacher of blogging. But the questions in the series are interactive and allow my to share my blogging experience. That’s why I have stuck with it for so long.
I once tried attempting a writing prompt which asked to write a piece in 99 words and then cut it down to 59 and then to 9 words. Finally stretch back to 99 words again. This exercise was something that I faced difficulties with but it ended up being a lovely piece.
Have you tried writing out of your comfort zone? If you have, do share the link to that post. I would love to read it.
