The Daily Post Writing Prompt – Express Yourself!

I didn’t particularly like today’s actual writing prompt, but the beauty part of Daily Post is that you can cycle through until you find one you like.  Here’s one from October 12, 2015.

Do you love to dance, sing, write, sculpt, paint, or debate? What’s your favorite way to express yourself, creatively?

I love to dance and write.  I’ve been writing consistently for about ten years (taking a hiatus here and there), and I danced for 22 years until I sprained my ankle.  I’ve had some complications as a result of the injury (tendon damage, scar tissue, and chronic inflammation), so I no longer dance.  I studied Ballet for four years, Jazz for eleven years, and Hip Hop for seven years.

When I stopped dancing in December 2014, I went into a sort of personal funk (there was another factor that contributed to this funk), and I contemplated giving up on writing. However, it was actually deciding to focus on writing that has helped me get past the personal funk (making several life changes also helped).  I changed my blog over to WordPress, began contributing to a website that focuses on something I love (nostalgia), and another site that nitpicks bad movies/television show episodes (to a smaller extent), and haven’t looked back.  Writing has been my main focus and my life is more enriched because of it.
