I love blogging. That is a fact. But I never intended to make my blog my first priority. On my list of prioritized things, blogging is supposed to come second, but either by bad time management or negligence, it's shimmied its way to the top. Writing fiction should be my first priority, not blogging.
So effective immediately, I'm paring down my number of blog posts a week from five to three, blogging on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I honestly think that blogging has affected my writing in a bad way. By the time I get to my fiction, I have exhausted my willingness to write or my mind is still in blog mode. I have noticed my writing becoming more simple since I started blogging, more journalistic rather than creative. I think the blog is to blame. And, though I love my followers here, and I love writing posts for you everyday, I love writing fiction more.
The new schedule will be
Monday: Mythology, Fantasy, and History
Wednesday: Craft, Tips, and Journey
Friday: Book Reviews, Interviews, and Guest Posts (and should I fail to have any of these, probably a fun, silly post)
I thank all of you for having an interest in what I have to say, and I hope to keep delivering quality material. Hope you're having an excellent Monday so far!
