I feel like I have been neglecting the blog again, but for once I feel it might be for a good reason!
All my free time at the moment has been consumed with my fiction writing. At the beginning of last week I just could not get the thought of all my stories out of my head; they have been sitting around doing nothing constructive for long enough and it has been playing on my mind. Usually, once I sit down to get down and get on with other things, my focus changes and I am fine; but this time it hasn’t helped a jot, only got worse! All you other writers out there will know exactly what I am talking about, I’m sure.
So, I have been channeling all my excess energy towards sorting out my books. I have written a fair few, only had the guts to send one of them off once a few years ago and the rejection sucked as well as threw what confidence I had right out of the window. Any way, it has taken some time but, with the positive comments I am blessed to receive from the wonderful people who have read The Moonstone over the past 22 months, as well as the lovely and inspiring comments I have received through this blog, that confidence is again up (not completely but there is enough, I hope!).
What does this mean for the future? Well, I’m not completely sure right now. I have so many plans running round my head; some are already in the pipeline – including the publishing of a free short story at some point in the coming weeks.
I am also deliberating having a separate writers blog, as I know a lot of you guys do, but I feel that my writing is part of everything that I do on this site too. So, I am in a quandary. Would a separate blog widen the appeal of my fiction writing? Or would I be creating more work for myself, and subsequently find that I have less time to fulfill my blogging obligations. Oh, the questions that try this witch’s taxed mind…
Any advice, opinions, views, suggestions will be gratefully received :-). I know I can rely on you guys to get me out of my dilemma!
