As you may have already noticed, I am trying something a little different with my blog. Instead of writing on a weekly schedule, I have switched to a monthly one. This means I’ll be posting a little more often (every three days, instead of twice week). My hope is the new schedule will give me a bit more structure, while still allowing me to post on any topic that catches my fancy. I am aiming to balance out my need for prompts with the desire for flexibility. Below you’ll find a few notes on some of the new post types.
I recently took a writing course, and while the course itself was too basic the assignments gave me a lot to think about. Each assignment was 500 words. It was an interesting exercise and one I found I enjoyed. Twice a month I will post 500 word stories or story segments. They might be complete tales, or I might continue one story for several months. At this point I will let the ideas take me where they want to go.
I’ve posted my monthly goals twice now. I like the accountability of it. I guess you could say this one is my guilty pleasure. I admit I’m posting them for me, so I have a record of how things are going for my writing.
For a short time I thought about doing book reviews, but then I realized I only wanted to share the stuff I really loved. I’m also not necessarily looking to pick books apart. So instead of reviews it will be recommendations. Mostly I’ll be talking about YA books, but I’m sure other book types, movies, and TV shows will sneak in.
Do you plan out your blog posts? Or are you a post whatever/whenever kind of person?
