As you may have heard, I’m going to be driving myself a tiny bit nuts next year if everything goes to plan. One concern is that I let this blog fall back into the netherverse as the stress mounts. I don’t want that to happen. I like this space, and it’s good for me. It’s a place to experiment. The stakes aren’t as high here as they are in something you need to eventually publish, and if you end up in a dead end mid-post, it’s not such a big deal. Plus, if I’m going to be self publishing, the blog will have to be a part of how I get the word out. Keeping things going here would be wise.
To that end, two things.
- Schedules! – Starting next week, I’m restricting myself to three posts a week, probably Monday-Wednesday-Friday. If I have a funny video or something, I might put that up, but as for writing a post, if I have two ideas over the weekend, they’re getting slotted into the MWF schedule so I don’t end up with a bunch of crap over a week or two of inspiration and then nothing for a month.
- Topics! – Is there anything about which you’d like to see me write? Write about more often? Less often? Anything in the past you particularly liked of which you’d like to see more? Sometimes, what spouts out is going to come out of whatever I’m doing. If the webseries happens, I can assure you production madness will be here. Same goes if I self publish. But otherwise, anything you’d like? I’m not afraid to beg for inspiration.
I’m not going to be able to write anything on the next novel until I get some serious notebooking done on it, so in the meantime, my plan is the use the blog to keep my output respectable. Hopefully that means getting a touch ahead of the posting schedule, so that I can ignore blogwriting for a week or two when I have to. We’ll see how that works.
