Writing for me has taken a different turn. It has moved to primarily focused on novels to solely blogging. I haven’t given up writing novels, nor have I run out of ideas. I simply have too many manuscripts for my editor right now. Along with that I’m focusing on increasing my web presence by blogging daily. This has led me to pay closer attention to would-be topics.
Believe it or not, I struggle to know what to blog about. Writing books and short stories come easier to me. I’m thoughtful and try to take a listen first and speak later approach to things. However, that’s not how the blogging world works. Bloggers are here to share their thoughts and views on things, and hopefully give insight into other perspectives.
Blogging is something I feel I need to improve on. By that I mean finding topics to write on. Crafting books is something I’ve trained my brain to do since before I was a teenager. I recently finished the rough draft of a science fiction novel and before I go back through that I wanted to give it room to breathe. As my editor finishes up work on my upcoming thriller/urban fantasy, I’ve decided to abstain from new book projects until that’s finished. Now suddenly I have way more time for blogging than I used to for the moment.
If you are a writer what is your primary focus? Is it blogging or producing novels?
