Writing 101: Day Ten – Update Your Readers Over A Cup Of Coffee #GlobalGoals

Today’s Writing 101, day ten:

No matter what type of blog you have, it’s sometimes necessary to post updates: from project news to personal messages about what’s going on in your life. One creative approach to an update post is a “virtual coffee date,” as seen on Kate Goes Global, which is like catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee.

In her post, Kate begins each paragraph with If we were having coffee right now… and then adds a detail. You can share any details you’d like and include as many as you want, as long as you begin each with If we were having coffee right now… (or a variation of this phrase, as seen on Girl with the Red Hair).

It’s a simple idea, but offers a bit more structure to your post — and is a lot more fun. So today, write an update post in the form of a virtual coffee date.

If this post isn’t fitting for your blog, or just not your style, here’s your alternative: use a coffee shop as your inspiration.

  • Set your poem or short story in a cafe.
  • Go to your neighborhood spot with your laptop or notebook and free-write for 20 minutes, prompted by what you observe.
  • Love or hate coffee? Tell us why.

If we were having coffee right now…I would say “Nice meeting you, I finally added Blogging as one of my hobbies”.

I am supporting all of the goals, but if I have to choose one, I support Goal #3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING, if we have this, we have all the energy to do the rest of 16 goals.
