Look, It’s a Shiny Unicorn Stampeding an Elf!
Okay, so that sounded way more interesting than: This Blog is About to Change, Wowzers! But I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my writing life and baooooring words like time management. The truth is there’s only one of me and a lot of you. And I want to give you what you want which is more stories, right?
That means I need to spend my time with my ass in the chair and my fingers on the keyboard writing my little tushy off. Besides, I already booked Alexis to edit book number two and I’m fairly certain she’ll bust out a machete if I don’t deliver. Well maybe not, but I don’t want to piss off the most awesome, kickass editor a girl could have.
Sucking up much? Okay, yeah, too much.
And I’ve noticed that the same books seem to circulate on various blogs to the point that it makes me feel a little bit queasy. It’s not that I won’t be spotlighting other books or blog tours on occasion, but you won’t see as much of that on my blog.
It’s not that I don’t love my fellow authors. I do. These are my people. They share the same neuroses that allow them to spend hours, days, weeks, or even years hanging out with make believe people that will never exist.
But I’m not sure that the best place to reach their readers is my blog or that they’re maximizing their own time management by spotlighting on an author blog versus a blog that’s dedicated to reviewing their particular genre.
I’d rather share the books that I’m currently reading with my readers.
So what will you see on my blog?
Well, you’ll see an occasional whassup to remind you that I’m still alive and kicking—to update you on what I’m working on. You might see some fun stuff or things about my rug rats because they’re just too damn cute for me not to share. I’ll be reviewing books on writing and sharing stuff for writers. And I’ll be reviewing books I’ve read that I think my readers might want to read too.
I don’t know. Whenever I feel like it…once a week, twice a month, once a month. But I’d suggest you subscribe to the blog so you’ll be the first to know when a new blog post goes up.
So what about the unicorn stampeding an elf?
Oh, yeah. You wanted to see that. Well, okay, if you insist!
Happy Holidays everyone! xoxo -A.C.
