What should I blog about?

Monday, January 13, 2014

Y’all, I’m at a loss.

I have no idea what I should be blogging about now that I’m not actively writing fiction. Not that I’ve stopped—I’m just taking a break from it for a while.

But because I’m not writing right now, there aren’t really any topics coming readily to mind begging to be blogged about.

So since I want to provide content that you want (within reason), I’m throwing this out to you:

What should I blog about?

    Even though you are taking a break from writing fiction right now, I always appreciate your insight. One topic you might consider: “Things I wished I known before I was published,” or “What would you have done differently. ” Thank you for all you do and all you have done to help others learning the craft of writing.

    I think Shelia had a wonderful idea. A series on publishing would be a great follow up to your writing tutorial.

    I like Sheila’s idea, but with just finishing the Art of Romance and especially with e-books on the rise – the importance of cover art and will it continue to be important with technology and books.

    You could write about your Reading Challenge. I mean, 50 books could cover 50 weeks, and January is almost over.

    You could write reviews or pick a topic e.g. story arc, character, plotting, setting, etc., and use the novels you read as case studies to see if they do meet what you think are important things in writing. I did that once with a couple of novels I read, and I focused only on certain elements of fiction writing, and whether or not the novels succeeded in those areas. Just an idea.

    Another related idea is to apply what you think is good writing to your own novels. Sort of like what Julie Lessman did. She used examples from her novels, and wrote a non-fiction eBook on writing to help other writers.
