Writing Wednesday: Dog Days of Summer
I warned you back in May that the time might come when I would stop writing blog entries to focus more on actual writing. That time has come! Friday’s post is going to be the last new one until maybe after Labor Day or so. The numbers have been down lately anyway, so the time seems right to focus on my summer writing goals.
In the meantime I’m going to do what television has done for decades and air reruns! The way I figure it, a lot of people who came here from the Crusade and such probably didn’t read many of the 2010 entries. So I’ll select some of those to rerun. It’ll be new to you! I’m only rerunning them on Monday and Wednesday because Friday’s numbers on average aren’t as good.
And I’ll still post a few “Status Update” or “Scribblings” posts–or more pictures I take from The Sims or other video games.
Finally here’s your writing thought for the day. I think there’s a finite amount of mental energy, at least for me. So if I really want to crank up the writing and get some things done, then I won’t have the energy for much in the way of blogging. Other people have probably an unlimited amount of energy and focus, but not me. I’ve been focusing on the blog since February and slacking off on the actual writing, but now that summer is here (as evidenced by 100-degree days in early June) it’s time to get the focus on achieving my summer writing goals.
But just because I might not be blogging myself doesn’t mean I won’t still be reading other blogs. Or Tweeting or any of that other stuff. Got to do something during all those boring hours at work.
The final Friday Flix (for now) focuses on running time: how much is too much?
