Now and then it’s a good idea to take a good hard look and see if it’s time to change courses. How often? Who knows?
For some time now, my Monday posts have been on the WWBC methods of preparing to write a novel. Wednesdays have been for remembrances, and on Fridays anything goes. Of course every other Friday is for Life List Club, and I usually exchange guest posts with another blogger on the alternate Fridays.
Fridays will continue pretty much as they have been. I really enjoy bringing you guests when I can and exposing my writing to other writers’ audiences, so I’ll continue with the Life List Club exchanges and try to find other guests the rest of the time.
My post on plagiarism on Monday, October 17, has been far and away my most-read and most-commented-on blog ever. Since then things have sorta settled into a rut. More could be written on the WWBC methods, but I’ve already covered most of the early preliminary work, and lots of other bloggers post about writing, so I’m going to cool it on that—at least for a little while.
My Wednesday remembrances sometimes strike chords that bring good traffic and sometimes pretty much miss the mark. I’m going to get away from those also.
For now, my Monday and Wednesday blogs will be miscellaneous. Some will probably still be in the category of remembrances. Some will be on some current event that happens to catch my attention. Some, like the one this Wednesday, will come from a recent personal experience which tugged at the strings of my heart or otherwise got my attention.
As always, I encourage you to comment. If you liked what you read, or hated it, or have a suggestion or other comment about it, I want to hear from you. And I always appreciate it when you take the time to click the little Twitter or Facebook icon to post the link for others to read it.
A graduate of Duke University, I spent 42 years as a health insurance agent. Most of my career was spent in Texas, but for a few years I traveled many other states. I started writing about 20 years ago, and have six unpublished novels to use as primers on how NOT to write fiction. Since my retirement from insurance a few years ago, I have devoted my time to helping Kristen Lamb start Warrior Writers’ Boot Camp and trying to learn to write a successful novel myself.
