Today is just a quick update on stuff in general. More for my own benefit really – it would take something of a narcissist to assume people are interested in what I’m up to.
I’m quite happy with the direction my site has taken recently. The regular posting schedule I’ve been keeping to for the last few months (every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) is working out much better than the ‘post-whenever’ approach I was taking before. I often end up scheduling posts up to a week ahead which means I don’t have to worry about my site for a while.
As well as the general writing articles, in the last couple of weeks I’ve taken to posting some more of my own writing again. According to WordPress stats and contrary to what I assumed, my own writing is more viewed and liked than most of the other stuff I put on here. So I reckon I’ll start posting bits of my writing again, balancing it alongside the usual articles. If I get enough poetry and short prose up on here, I’ll probably turn it in to a collection and sell it for the price of a packet of biscuits (or ‘cookies,’ for you American heathens).
At the moment I’m still hard at work on my first book. And I want nothing more than to finish it and never look at it again. I’m the same with all my writing now that I think about it – once it’s completed I want to forget it exists. I wonder if others think the same way, or if it’s more common practice to revel in it, in some sort of self-masturbatory fashion.
I’d like to start posting some of it on here and maybe try to attract a bit of attention before I publish, but since I plan to publish on Amazon I need to check the KDP program rules before I accidentally break any conditions and ruin everything forever.
So that’s me. Like, Follow, Subscribe, Tweet, Share, Upvote, or whatever bollocks it is people do these days. Or just go have a cup of tea and a biscuit. (Yes, I said biscuit).
