The painfully honest, pitiful musings of a romance writer
Everyone says it’s critical for authors to have newsletters and blogs and websites and author pages and more.
Lions and tigers and bears– Oh My!
Who is ‘everyone’ anyway? I kept this blog faithfully for a year and no one read it. Not even my mom. I mean, seriously. Is it something I said? Something I didn’t say?
So, if I’m honest, coming back to this with a better attitude is tough. Will anyone read it? Why should I bother?
But enough naysaying. I’m going to do this. I’m just curious on the ‘how’ (see my last post- I want this darn thing to matter!)- How will I make this thing fun for me, worthwhile for my readers, and not a waste of everyone’s time?
I’m guessing that I’m going to do one of two things.
1- pretend I’m going to do this and then fail to follow through.
2- break all the rules of blogging that I teach my students and not have a cohesive theme for the blog because, hey, the musings of a romance writer are all over the place most of the time.
But as Danny says in Grease, “Hey that’s cool, baby, you know how it is, rockin’ and rollin’ and what not.” So it’s entirely possible my blog will be a little more on the side of rockin’ and rollin’ and what not. Meh.
I’m also open to suggestions. Is there something you want me to write about? Something you’ve wondered about the glamorous (not so much) life of a novelist? I’m happy to share and be transparent with you if that’s your bag, baby.
Or maybe I’ll just write about whatever I want, with some film and pop culture references sprinkled in. I mean, this is MY blog after all. Let’s make this fun for all of us.
Leave your topic suggestions in the comments, or tell me your biggest frustration about blogs. I’m open.
Happy reading, happy writing, friends!
