Wow! I need to blog more. I just noticed that my last entry was from nearly a month ago. So why DON’T I blog?
Excuse #1: It uses the almost the same writing muscles as fiction does, and I need to conserve energy for writing my books. Because those are what folks really want to read. And they pay the bills.
Excuse #2: It takes time, a commodity we all have precious little of.
Excuse #3: There’s nothing I have a burning desire to talk about. Not every day in my life is noteworthy…or at least not noteworthy enough to write several paragraphs about. And I don’t want to bore my blog readers with prosaic posts. Facebook is more suited to my “short thought” days.
Excuse #4: My children were home for the holidays and I wanted to hang out with them.
Excuse #5: My editor and/or agent will notice that I am not doing my copy-edits (which are due in three days) and politely point out that those are more important, if less fun.
Excuse #6: I’m reading my Facebook news feed.
Okay, the excuses are getting pretty weak, so it’s time to stop procrastinating and go back to my copy-editing.
I’ll be back when a) I’ve turned in my copy-edits, and b) I am breathless with the need to share my brilliant thoughts with you. Bet you can’t wait!
Anyone out there have some better excuses than mine?
