So! I’m an author, and this is my blog. Yay, for the blog.
Writing for blogs, however, often seems to be something akin to giving a non-embarrassing answer when I random stranger runs up to you, shoves a microphone in your face, and demands that you say something clever. That is to say, the content of most blogs seems to be the digital equivalent of a stuttered “U-um w-what?”
In light of this I decided I’d actually draw up a plan for what this blog will contain. The plan, which will likely explode violently once exposed to reality, consists of the follows 8 posts per month.
2 – Bi-weekly unpublished short stories.
2 – Bi-weekly (on weeks there isn’t a short story) book reviews. Most likely these will pretty much always be Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I rarely read anything else, save the occasional non-fiction.
4 – Weekly posts about whatever randomness has managed to infect me on the day I decide the write the post. Perhaps a rant about flying pigs not being a viable source of bacon-light, or maybe a semi-rational breakdown of how to take of the world. There might, occasionally, even be a serious topic filled with ridiculous but useful metaphors.
So that’s the plan. I’ve actually got some of the short stories per-written, and I know which book I’ll probably review first, so I might manage to actually do the above for the first few months. Beyond that… Well, miracles do, indeed, happen. From time to time.
