Writing for the blog these last eight months has been a blast. Since May 1, 2018, I’ve posted more than 350 pieces that have touched on many of my interests — writing, film, books, and lots more. In the last eight months I’ve been teaching at the college level, working on three different novels, and basking in the glory of a new goldendoodle puppy named Charlie. Writing for this blog has been an absolute joy.
It’s been such a great discipline to get up every day and write something new for the site. Writing something brand new, revising one of the many pieces I wrote for Suite 101 back in the early 2010s, sharing an essay I wrote during my five years of graduate school, I’ve loved every minute of it. But in the last two months especially, it’s been getting harder and harder to produce on this site every single day, so I’ve decided for the new year I’m going to start posting a bit more occasionally — one to three times per week.
And from now on, ninety percent or more of what I post will be brand new content focused exclusively on writing. I might occasionally throw in an odd book review or film review here and there, but for the most part, as I continue developing my career as a novelist, and as I continue evolving in my writing, I want my pieces on this site in the new year to be all about the writing process. How to outline a a novel. How to write it. How to revise it. How to get a literary agent. How to be published. Anything I can do to help you along the way is what excites me, and so, although I wrote a lot about writing in 2018, there’s a whole lot more for me to share in 2019.
So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and then join me, will you? I can’t wait to share lots more about writing and have you come along for the journey. Thanks for reading, everyone, and I’ll see you soon.
