I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and now I think I’ve made up my mind.
Over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing some changes here on Paper Beats World. I’m focusing less on writing about writing and more on, well, writing. As I turn 30 this week, I think it’s a good time.
I’m turning 30, in fact, tomorrow. It seems weird, realizing that the things I’m worried about and working on and praying over are things I wouldn’t have even imagined ten years ago. I’m learning about a 401 K, preparing to publish a few more books this year, and getting ready for my little monsters to go into 7th grade in the fall. (I’m really looking forward to that already, and it’s only the first day of summer vacation.)
So, here are the changes you’ll be seeing.
- I’m going move my posts to Mondays and Fridays. Mondays are going to have a more ‘my real life’ feel to them, and Fridays will be anything from writing advice, movie reviews, tv reviews, book reviews or really anything else I can think of.
- I will still do a market post, But only if people really want me to! If you want me to keep posting markets, please leave me a response to this post, telling me so. Seriously, I was checking my statistics, and they’re by far my least read posts. If I’m wrong, please let me know. In fact, if just one person says they’d like me to keep posting markets, I’ll do it.
- Since my goal online is to show my writing, and get people excited about it, I’m going to be posting more of my own fiction. From now on, I’ll be posting speculative fiction every Wednesday.
And by the way, this new focus on sharing my own writing is going to include a very exciting project I’m intending to launch in August. Stay tuned.
I know that some of you are here just for the writing advice. To you, I say I’m sorry. At this point I feel like I’ve said all I have to say on the subject. But there’s a lot more I have to say. I hope you’ll stick with me.
