Why am I blogging?
Because I want to write and publish my writing online. So, after starting to write my book (yep, you heard me), I read a book about how to self-publish my book: Let’s Get Digital: How To Self-Publish And Why You Should, by David Gaughran. Now, I paid $.99 for this book, so I thought I should at least follow Mr. Gaughran’s advice. (At least for a while–we’ll see how this goes.)
Come on–let’s get real here; and, because I’ve been reading a lot of indie books lately and I think it’s kinda cool.
What am I going to blog about?
That’s a very good question. My blog will be a journal documenting my progress. Will I finish my book? Will I publish my book? Will it be worth $.99. I do not know the answer to any of those questions.
[Never did this, but I have made progress.]
Have I ever written anything before this year?
Yes and no–mostly no. I wrote some really bad poetry many years ago, but that’s it. I’m going to post those poems here because I like sticking needles in my eye. Also, I need to play around with this bloggy thing before I get serious about it. If you bother to read those poems–and I would suggest you don’t–please don’t assume what I’m writing now will be that bad. It may be, but don’t just assume it will be.
