I’ll cut to the chase shall I? I have been phenomenally crap about blogging. Rubbish. Yes, I know. Part of the reason for this is that I’ve been working like an absolute beast on TGB (The Great Betrayal) and haven’t had the time to eat/sleep let alone blog.
In light of the fact that I now have a longer deadline (and thank God, basically, as I was losing my mind and in danger of going off the deep end I – writing whilst working a full time job is bloody hard. I don’t recommend it…) I have a solution.
Listen to this…
Tuesday nights I go bowling. It’s extremely cathartic and when I’m on form I’m actually pretty good at it too. It means I don’t usually get much/enough time to do much writing beyond the 500 words I get in at lunch. I figure then that I can use this time more productively to post a blog.
In fact, I want to open it out to you fair reader (assuming there are still a few of you out there that is? And I hope there are…). Give me a topic you’d like me to blog about, something you’re interested in knowing my take on that relates to what I do as a writer or writing in general. I’ll even field stuff on movies and computer games. If I have an opinion of it, I’ll voice it. Nothing rude or dodgy please – that’ll just get spammed and I won’t be your friend any more.
Course, I’ll also blog about random stuff too, provide updates as to work progress (for the most part on that score, refer to Twitter or you can also get me on Facebook as my tweets go there too), signings, Shakespeare’s antics and general musings.
Oh, the other reason for the lack of bloggage is I’ve kind of been using Twitter as a blog substitute. It’s quicker, easier and I like the bite sized chunk style of the interface. Keep your ass over to Twitter, get an account and go follow me @NickKyme if you want to be get up to date with everything.
That said, weekly blog posts will be my aim (on a Tuesday evening, probably) from now on. I’ll also try and put art up on here too as BL let me.
This’ll be the place for extracts too, which I’m going to start posting up on a regular basis as well. If there’s anything else you want to see in my blogosphere then shout out and I’ll see about adding it. Oh, any questions or anything of that nature – I’ll get a bunch together and answer them all at once in a post so everyone gets the benefit.
If I’m feeling particularly frisky, I my even post more than one blog entry *gasp*. Yes! That’s right. Boosh!
So, my apologies for leaving you all hanging with nothing new to read. That’s gonna change from here on out. Keep checking the tweets because they’re the most prolific source of news but here’s where you get the meat for your potatoes.
