I kind of hate posting this, because it’s just a status update and I’d rather create a bit more value for you guys. But I was trying to do this blogging thing 30 days in a row, and I posted nothing yesterday. As for why not? Well, it was a combination of several things: I was less than optimally healthy, we discovered we were celebrating our wedding anniversary a day early due to a sudden schedule change, we also had an 8-hour foster parent training class that messed me up sleep-wise…stuff like that…but mostly it was that I didn’t have much to say. Like today, you might point out if you’re in the mood. My mind was otherwise occupied.
So, something has to give. I do plan to keep up the book reviews, and blog at least two or three times a week. But now that I’ve started the story-project too…well. I don’t really want to waste your time with blog posts that say “I got nothin’,” you know? I could do it, but what’s the point? And where do I want to put energy–stories, or blog posts? “Both” is of course my answer, but…
We’ll see how it goes. I like the notion of posting daily fiction totals in public, because it motivates me, but I’m coming to realize I don’t think it’s worth polluting all your inboxes with it. I might find somewhere else on the site to do it, instead. Could be a better idea.
That first story’s coming along, by the way. I don’t really know where it’s going (or coming?), but it’s (IMO) a pretty odd trip. Which is a thing I like in stories. (See? I kind of don’t want to tell you even that much–better, maybe, to just post the damn thing on Wednesday?)
Anyway. Have fun out there, and I’ll have something better for you in a few days. Maybe sooner. Maybe not.
