Hello, everyone. And for those few, those happy few, who stuck with me through my blog’s dark spell, thank you for your patience. This post is meant to give you a heads-up on what will be happening around here over the next few months.
The biggest change: no daily flash fiction.
For those of you who seem to like it, I do apologize. I really, really wish I could keep it up. Fact is, though, that I just can’t write a whole new piece of fiction every day (which takes me about an hour and a half) and do everything else I have to do. It’s gotten to the point where it’s not only cutting into my other fiction writing, but into my real-world responsibilities. The old pieces will remain, and I may occasionally add a new one from time to time, but that’s it.
Second, there will be fewer blog posts around here, but (I hope) better ones. I feel almost as though I’m spamming you on a semi-regular basis, and that has to change. Originally, I had planned to post two or three times a day on this blog. I think that will now go to two or three times a week. On Mondays, I’ll review a current film or television series. On Fridays, I’ll review a Kindle book. Wednesdays will see me posting links I found interesting or informative…if I found anything I liked. I may, from time to time, post something else as the mood strikes.
Third, the time I save from not grooming this blog on a daily basis will be put into more personal interactions. I keep meaning to get out there, and share what I’ve written with other people. I keep meaning to read what they’ve written, and offer my thoughts. In short, I think I’ve let this blog become an end in itself, rather than as the means to building a community of friends which it was intended to be. That will change.
I solemnly swear that this will be the last one of these posts for some time.
