The problem with blogging

I started to feel guilty about not having updated my blog in several days. I mean, what kind of blogger am I, if I don't make at least an entry every other day?

Answer: A blogger with a day job, a home to run, a family to care for, and novels to write.

A blog is a great excuse to write every day, which is of course the key to building craft.

Unfortunately, the flip side of that is that the writing getting done isn't helping me finish my next book.

It is quite a quandary, but one I shall expend no further time on today.

I am going to go work on a novel now.

  1. I discovered blogging keeps me from real writing.

    Until I started a blog that is my novel. Each entry is the next part of the chapter. I find that's working out quite nicely for me. It seems less daunting calling it a blog than a novel.
