“Oh, you’re a writer? Do you have a blog?”
I really wanted to answer, “No, I have a book,” but that felt kinda snarky. Instead I explained yes I do, but because of a car accident and hectic work schedule since December, it hadn’t been updated in long time. Which is all true, but it still sounded excuse-y.
I should have just answered, “Yeah, but I suck at updating it.”
I know blogs can be really great ways for readers to connect to an author, especially a new, non-established author, but I just really haven’t had much to say. I mean, sure, I could have just droned on and on about neck injuries and hiring/training a new puppeteer at work, but why? Who wants to hear that? That’s just boring, daily life.
For me, I just don’t have much to say here. I don’t really want to talk about my “process” because then it’s just a blog for people who want to read about how someone is writing…and there are plenty of good blogs already out there for that.
The one bit of BIG NEWS I do have is that I’ll be leaving my job as a full-time marionette puppeteer April 23, and will be devoting my time to writing and pursing acting again!
So I guess there is a little interesting journey ahead of me, but I don’t have the desire to detail every step along that path because I’m not sure who’d be interested and isn’t already keeping up with me on Facebook.
Anyway, long story coming to an end: I’m leaving my job and will be working on the sequel to Runaways. Wish me luck!
No, don’t wish me luck—wish me…a healthy writing practice, one I can turn into a daily habit, how’s that?
So, if you somewhat enjoy my writing style and have ideas of things you’d like me to tackle here on the blog, leave a comment below! Dying to know my opinion on Coke vs. Pepsi? Wonder what vegans do for dessert? Want a story about a marionette puppeteer? Ask away! …because currently this blog has no real direction, and I don’t see myself getting any anytime soon 🙂
Also, if you have read Runaways, but haven’t left a review (even just stars), it would mean a lot to me if you did. Reviews/stars are the social proof readers look to when deciding to try a new author. You can do so on Amazon here!
