So I’ve just recently started what I hope will be the last round of proofreading for my first book, In Honor’s Shadow, so I’ve been contemplating my journey from the story’s beginnings to here. Getting this first book out has been a long time coming, in large part because I procrastinated constantly. Granted, I’m also hampered by this being my first book and thus trying to muddle through without knowing exactly what I should be doing. Regardless of how long the trail has been, sharing it seems a nice start.
Since I’ve gone through the trouble to set this thing up I should probably use it. Realized I didn’t actually address the point of this blog in my last posting and only announced it’s existence, which seems a bit of an oversight.
This blog will be a place where anyone can reliably find information on the writing projects I’m working on in addition to any news about myself that seems worth sharing. No doubt there will be other miscellaneous stuff that gets posted as well, though what that may be I don’t know yet. Once I see a pattern I’ll be sure to share.
Although things will certainly change as I blog more, for the present I expect to have 3 main types of posts:
- Background information on my story worlds. This may take the form of my story notes, edited for clarity and consistency, but I intend to experiment here as raw notes probably aren’t very interesting.
- Updates on the projects I am involved with and any thoughts my creative process has brought to me. I will attempt to stay away from the technical side of writing (I don’t want this to turn into a blog about how to write), however some posts of that nature may arise.
- Announcements. Similar to “updates” from #2, although technically that should be a sub-set of this. I just wanted to set them apart more clearly as I believe they deserve to be addressed separately. When I launch a new book, or a sale starts, or anything else important happens I will make a post. That said, if you want to be sure to never miss anything you should probably sign up to my newsletter.
