So, a few weeks ago I made a big deal about how I was going to do daily entries and that each day would have it’s own topic. While I wasn’t 100% on that commitment, I was trying to keep up with if for about 3 weeks. Then, last week I stopped doing it. Why? Several reasons. The first is that I am supposed to be working on a novel and I don’t need any other writing assignments cluttering up my time and my head . . . especially because it takes very little to rationalize putting of working on the novel. The second is that I was hoping that by providing some structure to the blog, I might encourage more readership and/or participation. This didn’t happen. Maybe I should have given it more time, I know. But since I seemed to actually receive some comments before I started this experiment and only one–and he wanted something referenced in the post–after I started the more structured approach, so incentive to provide structure was practically non-existent.
Finally, I have accepted that, at least for now, this site is not going to reach out to many people and that I need to use it for my own amusement as well as a place to store samples of my work. I know that a few of you read the site, and I appreciate it.
Basically, what this means is a return to entries happening on a haphazard schedule, and dedicated to whatever-the-hell topic I want to write about at the moment.
