This past week I’ve done a makeover on how I blog. I’ve been like Robert Frost’s traveler in the woods facing two diverging roads, only I’ve been trying to stradle both until I think I pulled something! So then it came to me. Frost said he couldn’t travel both and be one traveler, but he wasn’t dealing with cyberspace. I can be more than one traveler here.
So I’m duplicating myself by splitting my blog into two.
- Here, on CindyGrigg.com I’m going to stick to my fiction writing life and adventures to include: research, inspiration, travels, and random musings. I’d like this blog to be more personal and conversational.
- The Productive Author will be where I focus on my non-fiction writing including writing productivity and my new book series HOW TO WRITE LIKE IT’S… about how modern apps, software, tools, and tech in general can be levers, and ones that too many writers shy away from.
After all, it’s almost 2015! There are tools to make writing easier. For example, check out my Writing App of the Week.
I just finally clued in that these may be two very different types of communities, so while there is obviously some cross-over between the two, this way I can keep my posts a bit shorter. I’ve been waxing verbose trying to cover both in one place.
Just wanted to ‘splain!
Oh, and happy #NaNoWriMo to all those who are doing it! I am and I’ve reached 12,000 of the 50,000. And yes, I dictated mine–8,000 words on Saturday. I’m telling you, there are reasons to learn dictation… So worth it. Happy writing this week!
