Of Blogs and Books

I had a thought last night and started some preliminary exploration this morning.

I’ve found that over the last four years of maintaining this blog, I have written over 24,300 words about world building and the F/UF/SF genres.  Combined with the roughly 20 posts I broadly conceived of in the last week or two . . . I’m seriously considering revising the 43 relevant posts and the upcoming 20-ish into something resembling a book.

I’m also considering setting up a Patreon account, to fund more writing time (that isn’t one of my 2.5 jobs – tutoring, resume writing, and freelance editing).

Planning Ahead

After the little question a short while back, I’ve been thinking.  So, to keep myself on track, and get some outlining, here are some of the “Genre Thoughts” I’ve thought up to work on in the coming year:

1) Protagonists (Number of)

2) Magic Items (probably 4 post series)

3) Lifespans (non-human and extending)

4) Fantasy/UF Species Revisited (detailed; probably 10 post series covering “classic” and less common species)

5) Myths & Legends (F, UF, SF)

Question: Content Preferences

Hi everyone,

Back from the holidays and in a new year.

I spent a bit of time skimming the stats on previous posts and have come to a conclusion: it appears that my mini-series on magic and worldbuild elements have been among my most popular posts to date (in views and likes), followed by musings on genre.

So, I thought I’d toss this out there:

Is there anything that you, my small group of readers, are interested in seeing me post about in the coming month or year?

Blogging Goes to the Side

Apologies for the lack of contact lately (aside from the Origins update).  Writing time is always limited with a kid around, and two jobs, etc.  Lately, my focus has been on novel drafting (hit the halfway point last night) and worldbuilding for three follow ups (two urban fantasy, one secondary world fantasy; all linked together via wibbly wobbly multiverse stuff).

Oh, I did add a link to my Goodreads profile to the header bar, though.  Still working on getting my profile and author pages (Goodreads Author status) linked.
