I was at the museum last week and met one of my old students.
I got the idea to write about meeting her, and giving her a Zero Gravity ride.
Her grandmother took 3 pictures. This was my favorite.
I decided to zoom in on the two of us.
I realized, as I pasted it into a word document, that I didn't have enough pictures or ideas, for a post.
I went to Bing images to get more.
I found this picture of the museum but I wanted more.
I decided the new images should show gravity in action.
Here's what I found:
I decided to end with the original picture, but I still wasn't happy. I needed better pictures of the tray, the hoses, and the motor, so I could show and tell you how the zero gravity trainer works.
Images found, I pasted them into a word document. It helps me see how I want to tell my story.
Then I wrote the first draft. As I wrote, I thought about cost. I googled prices,. Zero gravity opportunities are not cheap!
I’ve been editing that draft since Tuesday the 8th. Christopher, the museum educator, read it on Wednesday the 9th. Hooray! No content errors.
I didn't finish editing my approved draft today, the 10th, so I put this post together. I already had this idea in a word document. I thought you'd like to see how a post is created. Would you believe I still spent 3-4 hours tonight editing it, prepublication? I want my writing to be just right!
Tomorrow I'll finish editing the real post. I'll read and reread it until it's smooth and error-free. Just right!
Finally, hopefully tomorrow, I'll go into Weebly. I'll cut the pictures and text from my word document, and I'll paste them into this program I'll proofread again, and again, till it's just right. Writing isn't easy! Then, finally, I'll click post. Hopefully, tomorrow night, you'll see the real post on rindabeach.com. Fingers crossed!
When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
