Write Now Write Later got off to a slow start. I don't even really remember what prompted me to start writing here to begin with. It was more than likely learning that publishing houses want you to have your own well established following via a blog or social networking before they'll even think about publishing your novel.
Not that it was a chore mind you, I'm a writing machine. When I'm awake. I write novels, poetry, blogs, articles, roleplay, you name it. I've written until my fingers ache and my eyes are blurry. Like I said though, it started out slow. I wrote a couple of posts in May, another in June, and then the blog just kinda sat here. Doing nothing. It might have had something to do with that June post. I do hate June.
Anyway, long story short, a fellow Webooker posted a link in a forum that she'd started a new blog, and that was all the incentive I needed. I decided to check on my blog and spending a couple of days wandering around Blogger, I stumbled across a few that I really liked.
Granted most of them were blogs with bazillions of followers and no matter how many comments I left, they never even looked at my page. Bad for blogging in my humble opinion, but they seem to be doing just fine so who am I to say.
Like everything else in my life, even my blog became random. What started out as primarily a writing blog turned into something else. I'm not real good with staying focused, or on not speaking my mind, so I don't know why I thought blogging would be any different. My answer to that?
Make another one.
Now I've got two, and hopefully this one will remain the one more geared to my writing and things like that. Yes, you'll still find the randomness here too, maybe not quite as much, but writing is writing in any and all forms, and as long as I'm writing anything, well I'm flexing that muscle. The creative one. I think it's somewhere in my foot. Or maybe .....ugh nevermind. It's there and that's all that matters.
That my dears is how this blog began, where it goes now? Well that's up to all of us!
Right now I'm posting here and on the other blog every day, but I hope that one day I'll be able to move this one to weekly posts, a little less random, a little more based on quality content. Then again, maybe I'll keep it up on a daily basis. Only time will tell.
In the meantime, if you, my lovely readers have ideas, suggestions, anything you'd like to see here, anything you'd like me to write about, well I'm always up for suggestions and prompts. I sit around and think of a million things a day I can blog about and when I sit down to write, well, they have a tendency to disappear just like that.
But that's the humble beginnings of my blog world, since then I've crawled up to almost 100 readers, most of whom are wonderful and come buy often and leave lovies which I adore! Followers are great, but readers are the best and I appreciate all the love and encouragement I've gotten here and you guys too!
Let's hope 2011 is a great year for us all, blogging and otherwise!
