Writing & Making Maple Syrup
Wednesday, December 02, 2020
I finally finished my booklet! For years, I've been writing blogs on SparkPeople about my journey of living a healthy life while dealing with Type 2 Diabetes.
The creation process was a lot like making maple syrup. Putting it all into a booklet meant a lot of rereading and taking out repetitions. I boiled down my writing to at least 40 blogs into one page in my booklet.
For me, one blog is a gallon of sap. It is the start of bringing out what is in my heart and sharing it. Every day I write and accumulate my blogs. One day, a friend suggested that I put them into a book. It took more work than I expected, but I feel good about what I wrote. It's not very long, but it's my story! Now I just have to put it into a form that allows me to share it easily with others.
