I want you to know that just because I haven’t updated this blog in 12 days I haven’t been a total slacker. Honest! :-)
If you check the gadgets on the left, you’ll see that I’ve finally updated my What I’m Doing. Please note the bar has finally moved on Forever and For Always. I don’t think it’s going to make 80,000 words, probably more like 70, but I’m okay with that. It is what it is. I know someone who decides how many words her story is going to be before she even starts and keeps within that limit. Of course she’s a plotter while I’m a pantser. I have two more plot holes to fill in F & FA and then I can print it out for line edits. Hooray!
I’ve also removed the 2010 Reading Challenge, replacing it with a Goodreads widget. I just signed up with Goodreads yesterday, so I’m still feeling my way around it. I’ve got the widget for the books I’m currently reading here, and the widget for the books I’ve read on my other blog.
I also joined Wrymo yesterday. This is the brainchild of the awesome Heidi Sutherland. It’s a community created for writers by writers. There’s forums, chats, all kinds of cool stuff and it’s free to join. If you’d like to check it out, go HERE. And when you sign up, don’t forget to add me as a friend!
Some people have asked me why I have three blogs. Well, it used to be four, but Goodreads is replacing the need for the book blog. Anyway, each blog has its purpose.
The links for my poetry forms were getting too large to keep on my main writing blog, so I started Passion For Poetry. So far the posts are pretty much duplicates of my Thursday posts on Random Thoughts, but it also has back links to my poetry forms and links to poetical websites. Some day I hope to do more with this site, but don’t hold your breath waiting.
If you want structure, check out Random Thoughts. Monday is goals and updates, Tuesday is usually non-fiction (currently I’m exploring home remedies), Wednesday is, uh, um, an inspirational picture, Thursday is poetry (I did a ten part series on Famous Poets, but I’m back to exploring different poetry forms now), and Friday is a new installment of my on-line serial, Fire.
However, if you like surprises, this is the right blog for you. I’ve tried to keep this blog more informal, which is why the updates here are rather sporadic. This is the place of blogfests and blogchains, rants and random posts, and announcements that don’t fit in elsewhere. Sometimes even I don’t know what’s going to show up here. :-)
