Bloggy Evolution

More of an Underwear Evolution than a Bloggy Evolution.  But it amused me.

More of an Underwear Evolution than a Bloggy Evolution. But it amused me.

Yep, I’m in a process. 

I’ve never been particularly good at saying, “Hey!  I’m a writer!  I would really like it if people bought my stuff, read my stuff, and hey, even enjoyed my stuff.”  Because it’s not just how I make my living, such as it is–it’s what drives my life forward.  Writing.  Reading.  Knowing it matters.

Consequently, I get a little shucky-darn when it comes to putting my stuff out there.  For one thing, saying, “I would really like it if…” leaves one entirely open to the crushing response of “but we don’t actually like you.”  (Ouch, right?)

Anyway, that’s not altogether a great starting point for a writer in today’s publishing climate.  Still, I’m just not natively cut out to find a nice balance between, “Hello.  I exist,” which is perfectly pleasant, and “HELLO I AM IN UR FACE PUSHING MY BOOKS.”  So lots of times I end up with “hello. i am accidentally IN UR FACE!”

Oh well.  I’ll keep trying.  In the meantime, I’ve been making changes around the blog–exploring the new WordPress theme functions (even if I haven’t done a think to prettify its outsides yet) and adding a whole buncharoo of book pages.  Right now that’s in process.  It’s not done, because once I get the pages set up I’ll be fussing around with the structure and trying to make it all as neat and tidy as possible.  So if (oops, I got interrupted at work and inadvertently published that sentence unfinished…)

AHEM.

So if you notice the untidy process, may it amuse you rather than frustrate you.  8)

I suppose I should put the latest of the new Nocturne covers up there in the sidebar while I’m at it, but…one thing at a time.  Because, after all, I’d really rather be writing!

PS But the reason I’m not writing is that I just finished first draft on ALPHA ENTANGLED, so how cool is that?

PPS Speaking of underwear evolution, here’s a fun book: Medieval Underpants and Other Blunders.  Have fun!

    It is a Good Thing that ALPHA ENTANGLED is finished. And you are Evil, pointing me at Yet Another Possible Reference.

      It is my modest goal to achieve this particular level of evil when possible…

        That is funny. And interestingly, my subscription seems to have disappeared because I did not get the last few posts in my email…Shall I re-subscribe?

          Weird are the ways of WordPress and everything else. Nothing I did should have touched that, actually–that’s a Feedburner thing. I will be way bummed if Feedburner somehow dumped my friends! But resubbing is the thing I’d try…
