I must be honest. I cheated on WordPress (just a little bit).
I gave Tumblr a try, thinking that it might be a better platform for an author’s blog, but I found that I didn’t really like it at all. Somehow, the simpler the user interface is, the harder and less user friendly I find it.
What can I say, I enjoy the traditional blog more. I belong to the 80’s generation after all.
So, anyway, now I’m back here, and I intend to stay… and I have some news, too!
1. I finished my first draft!
This is a huge deal. Starting out, you feel like you’ll never finish, the outline keeps on changing, the characters aren’t really what you planned, all of a sudden you forget important plot stuff and have to go back and fix it… I know this sounds dreadful, but trust me, that’s what first drafts are. They’re not meant to be good, they’re meant to be written and edited, then edited again and again. Books aren’t written, they’re re-written.
2. I’ve started a Youtube channel!
If you’d asked me 6 months ago, I would have laughed at this. I am NOT good at speaking, be it in front of a camera, crowd or even a mirror. I’m a writer, I write stuff, that’s my comfort zone.
Well, it was time to leave that comfort zone. I wish I could say that it’s not cringey at all, but hey, it’s a learning curve. The important thing is that I post a video every week and learn more as I go along. Here’s a link to my latest video!
I’m aiming to post more often here as well, so yeah. Whoever is out there reading this, I hope to see you back soon 🙂
