So, I was avoiding doing this until I was actually published, but, well. I guess because of what I want to say this week, I need a News category!
What’s going to to into this category? Basically, it’s going to be where you find any announcements as far as when the blog is going to update, if the content is going to be changing, all of that fun stuff, so I’m not sticking it at the bottom of posts anymore since that isn’t fair to people who may miss an entry. (And yes, I totally missed last Sunday because I’m derp. My fault entirely.) In the future (whenever the heck that ends up being, I’m drowning in the first half of Act 2) that’s where I’ll announce when something is coming out, when I’ll (hopefully) be doing appearances and book signings, all of that.
For the other half of this little post… I’m getting burned out of posting about RPing. I mean, I occasionally have something to talk about (I have one Tabletop post in mind), and I’m sure that will still happen on occasionally, but overall, I’ve about hit the end of it, making my cycle hard to keep up with. I could force stuff out, but that could end up being a nightmare.
As for reviews, its hard some weeks for me to post anything that’s relevant. I had a brand new book that I swore wasn’t part of a series… Only I checked the front before I started reading it, and it’s the second book in one. Second books are guaranteed to be bad. I’m not going to whack on a new writer like that (okay, I could, but I’m trying to be nicer!). I’m trying to move more to recent publications, but those take time (and money) for me to find. I have a box of quasi-recent publications coming my way (thank you Ginny!), but even then, sometimes I just don’t have time during the week to read a book and write a review about it, since I have hit the busiest part of my year.
So what does this mean? Well, I’m throwing the cycle out the window. There will be still be reviews, talking about RPing, talking about writing. But what happens when is going to be completely random. It’s a scary thing for me, I like knowing what I’m doing when, but I think this change needs to happen. The cycle was fine when I had more free time in grad school, but now I’m finding my feet out in the working world, and I’m discovering that this means some things need to change with how I’m doing my personal life. I’ve slowed down my forum RPs, for example, and really focus on writing on the weekends. So I think the blog needs to change too.
That said, I do have some new content coming up. I started playing an MMORPG (which is why I don’t manage any writing on the weekdays in the evening), and a friend of mine and I are going to do journals of the “days.” I’ll add that soon, but those posts are going to be REALLY random. Like I may post two or three a week and then NOTHING for a month, kind of random. But I hope you all will enjoy some free story from me, and hope it will encourage people to check out what I do have up on Kindle and my future work.
