I'll admit..I have neglected writing for quite some time now, but recently I've found myself wanting to write. Buying new notebooks and pads of paper..even new pens.

I want to improve in every way I can (which is alot of ways). I'm still VERY green; my grammar, spelling and punctuation are shockingly bad...but...every one has gotta start somewhere.
So this is me, at the begining...Wish me luck.

    mumbled "Getting Back Into Old Habits"

    From the age of around 11 right up until I was 16, I used to write every day. I'd write poetry, short stories or even something as simple as a journal entry. As I look back on some of my messy scribblings, a lot of it was venting, just my little way of coping with what was going on around me. So I got to thinking today, about how I used to write all the time and how I believe it was my way of dealing with things and I had a thought; Why should I only write when I'm feeling stressed or feeling like I'm not coping, and why is it now, that when I come to put pen to paper it never comes out how I want it to. So I have vowed to myself today, that I will not only start writing again but I will look to improve my writing, my vocabulary, my spelling, my grammar and all the rest.

    I am going to start using writing prompts to try and boost my creativity when it comes to my writing, so forgive me if this blog spot becomes over run with an abundance of extremely short stories and further ramblings of my mind, but it has become my personal goal to get back into my old writing habits and improve my writing skills.

    Here goes my first writing prompt (taken from dailywritingtips.com).

    She studied her face in the mirror, how old and frail she'd become. How the skin around her eyes no longer seemed to cling to her brow bone but instead sags down around her eyes. How her face has thinned with age and her hair, which used to fall in luscious chocolate brown waves around her face and about her shoulders, has now turned a dull grey. As she stares at the features she's come to accept, she thinks of him and all they used to have.
    She thinks of all the times he had held her close, like he would never let go..like he couldn't let go. How his eyes looked when he smiled and how that smile melted away all the doubts and worries in her mind. She'd always thought that one day he would realise that he was far too good for her and leave but he never did, he was always right their beside her. He supported her when her mother had passed away. His family had accepted her when she had no where else to go and supported them both through the unexpected pregnancy. He'd held her hand and dabbed the sweat from her forehead as she gave birth to their son and then vowed forever and always at the weddings to end all weddings. Thinking back on it now, she'd realised how close to a fairytale her life had been since he walked into her life. She found her prince and they had lived happily ever after, but her fairytale came crashing down around her exactly a year ago that day when she'd woken up with his cold, stiff arms around her.

    So there was my first try in a long time, don't judge me too harshly. I'd very much appreciate some feedback, positive and negative :)
