Blogging

I reluctantly started blogging five months ago, on November 18th to be exact. My reason for not wanting to join the hoards of people communicating this way was simple. I make my living around computers, I write on a computer (mostly) and when I'm not doing either of those things I want to be as far away from technology as possible in this overly-wired age.

And I didn't have anything to say.

But now, not only do I blog... albeit not as frequenly as I should... but I also a run website for my fellow Word Counters. And I love it. I'm learning new skills, none of which are in the least bit useful in my day-job, and I'm getting a huge kick out of seeing other writers make progess on their works-in-progess (or process if you prefer). And it's all thanks to the wonderful world of blogging.

And I still don't have anything to say.

Liz, thank you THANK YOU for the Holly Lisle links. She is a blast. I did her beginning character sheet and mini-plot workshop tonight. I came up with a really cool opening scene that is much more effective than what I had planned originally.

I'm so glad you found her stuff helpful. It really works for me, it's nice to know that it works for you too. Check out her free email mini courses. They're excellent too.

And you still don't have anything to say...heh. Made me laugh.

I resisted blogging for much the same reasons--well, not exactly resisted, just didn't even entertain the notion. But then my brother started, and I thought maybe it'd be a good place to write some of the things I tend to think about but had no outlet for. Plus, though I write all the time at work, I just wanted to write something that was MINE.

And now the Word Counting thing is going too. That's probably the best part of this whole blogging thing. Guess it's a good thing we all started, huh.
