Ahh...the dilemma, what to blog about today. Book reviews? Talk about creative writing? My new work in progress, Fated? This is the life of a blogger/writer.
When you are a writer who is at home full time, not many interesting things happen in your life. You have the day to day hum drum of sitting in front of your computer, either writing or promoting, or my personal favorite, what chores you need to catch up on.
There's always, cleaning, groceries, errands, and laundry, to keep your life in some semblance of order, or back to the computer. I can check to see if there's any new comments on the fanpage or blog, but really I can see those on my smart phone.
I read articles written by other bloggers, or in the news. I can read a book, which I often do. I can watch a movie if my eyes are now blurry from staring at the monitor or my phone for hours, or, of course, take a nap.
That is my exciting day.
I do try to plan outings a few times a week with a friend or my grandchildren, but I have a car without air-conditioning and black interior so the day outside is short lived. There really isn't much going on to stimulate a new blog post.
I do love writing, it's the social media stuff that drives me crazy. I read about the do's and don't's of blogging, and to be quite honest it can be disheartening sometimes.
Don't promote your book!
Isn't that why I'm here? True, I want to get to know my followers and what's new in their lives, but they need to join in. So my friends, what's happening in your world? Tell me about the dog, or your kids. Tell me how your spouse is driving you nuts, or your car trouble. I'm here to listen and chime in when appropriate. I'm all ears.
I get ideas for writing by stimulation, and since I don't have much of an exciting life, help a friend out here and give me stories about your world. I know Facebook can be boring sometimes, and people aren't into blogs, so let's have a conversation. I'm here to be your shoulder, your confidant.
Fill me in.
