With the new life in UK changes have been made to my life. I am no longer a full-time writer with time on her hands. I am a full-time carer with a time slot for writing. Blog posts do not jump out at me as they once did.
Today I have made it clear that it is a writing day, a day off for me. So far mother has only disturbed me three times, in an hour. She has to adapt to the new life, too. As does my blog. It is hit and miss with interesting posts. One thing I am enjoying is the interviews with so many of you. Reading more about other authors and their habits within the craft does not make me feel quite so untidy around my desk area, many others are equally as messy!
Recently, I read a blog post where the writer stated they were fed up of reading the same questions in interviews. Personally I am not changing my method as I enjoy reading the different answers to the same question. In time I will add a couple of new but at the moment I feel it works well. Now’s your chance, do you think I should change the questions sooner rather than later? Like the writer of the post, are you bored of the same ones, so therefore no longer read them?
Another blog post writer indicated that blogs are becoming places for authors to advertise books, and nothing else. No inspirational, informative posts are being created anymore. I admit, hands up, inspiration for writing a blog post does not come easy, but I do like to help authors promote their books so have no intention of changing my ways. It works for me. Do you have self-doubt when it comes to writing blog posts, do you worry that readers of your blog will … zzzzzzzzzzzz?
The lasted novel is picking up pace, and the New Year should see its launch. Living in the area where it is base is now becoming nerve-wracking. What if I upset folk with wrong information about the area, will they accept it is fiction?
My poor brain whizzes around with questions all day long, it is little wonder I flit from one thing to another lately. I really must settle down to one project. I have many cards made to raise funds for Alzheimer’s, the local group were so supportive of my family during dad’s dark days. They will benefit from fundraising events my knitting mother and I attend.
I look forward to reading what you feel about my interview questions, enjoy your week.
