I’m thinking about starting another fiction blog. I had a lot of fun with my first one, and I’m sort of between books right now. I have two that I’m editing, and two that are in the planning stages. That leaves me with nothing to really write in the evening, although I’m doing a lot of writing-related research.
I have a story from several years ago that never quite worked, and like Diana’s Diary, it’s a road trip story. My biggest problem when I wrote it as a novel was that I never succeeded in getting deep enough into my main characters’ heads to adequately explain their motivations. A blog format certainly solves that problem! I’ve already written a few posts, but I haven’t yet created a blog. I’m waiting to see if this feels like something I can sustain before I go forward with it.
If I do it, though, I’m not committing to daily postings like I did with Diana’s Diary. That just about killed me. Besides, I’ve got a vacation coming up next month!
