It sometimes surprises me too that I have been writing (mostly junk – teehee) for more than a decade. Where did the decade go? What have I got to show for it except for a blog that I try to keep alive? Anyway, if you asked me to categorize the type of writing and writers out there, I would say that you can basically divide the lot of us up into 15 different types.
Sounds like a lot but when you study them, they overlap. A blogger is also a content writer while a person who writes business proposals are also business writers. So on and so forth.
What kind of writer am I? I am a rubbish generator. =) Who occasionally make sense but most of the time, use words to spew complete nonsense to release work stress. Some may claim that I am a blogger but I disagree based on the fact that bloggers get no respect and looked down upon in the writing community, no? Well, looked down upon by the kind of writers who prefer to use really pompous words, anyway.
I am too lazy to think up of a pompous word and here is my theory, I am writing this for myself and people who want to read it…I would say there is a huge percentage of you who do not know what the word ‘impervious’ or ‘articulate’ or stuff like that mean. If you do know what the words mean, you are either a writer or a very well-read person. But ordinary people don’t like big words because it makes them feel small and make their brains work. How many people who read blogs do not mind opening up a new tab for Dictionary.com, right?
So, yeah, there are different types of writing which I will talk about another time. I think this is boring enough, so, now go nap.
