This week has been a busy one. A lot of time has been spent on an email list I’m trying to build.
Then there’s my short story. I finally finished it yesterday. I’d wanted something under 9,000 words and this one, in rough draft form, comes to just under 7,000. By the time I’ve finished revising, it should be somewhere between that and 7,500, which is a decent number. The only thing that disappointed me about this story was the almost complete lack of romance. I’d intended for there to be more, but I don’t think I can add anything more without ruining the story. And it’s a pretty good one, I think. Perfect for sending out.
However, I’m not sure if sending it out is going to help me. In fact, it might hurt since there’s so little romance in this. Then again, the tagline for my website does say “a touch of romance”. So maybe no one will be confused? And it does have a couple in it. There’s just no kissing scenes or even longing looks. It’s a romance with no romance. *shrugs* We’ll see in the revision.
But my main point is that my blogging schedule is going to have to decrease. It’s looking like it’ll probably drop to once a week for the foreseeable future. Not sure yet.
That’s part of why I’m creating my website. I think a blog gives others the idea that you’re going to be adding content on a frequent basis. A website, though it does add c0ntent, isn’t nearly as frequent as a blog. Plus, I’m finding I can modify a lot more with my website than I can with this blog.
As those who’ve been reading for a while know, this isn’t something I decided out of the blue. I’ve been leaning more and more toward less social media for some time. I no longer update my Facebook page, though I still have it, and my tweets have gotten considerably less. Blogging is the last thing and, though I do love it, I can’t update this as often as I’d like with good content and still manage to produce content that I intend to sell. It’s just not going to happen.
So, for now, once a week. I’ll let you know how that works.
