Most inconsistent blogger ever!

So I'll just come right out and say it: I suck at consistently using this blog.  There are a variety of reasons for this, but the bottom line is that I always start out with good intentions of keeping the blog going, but then become overwhelmed.

In order to try to remedy that, I've decided that I'm going to change up the format, which will make it easier for me to keep the blog updated regularly but won't place a lot of demands on my time because, frankly, as much as I sometimes enjoy blogging, I want to focus my writing time on creating that next book (because you have NO idea how many fun, fun plans I have for more books!).

To that end, here's the plan for the blog going forward:

Mondays will be Monday Musings in which I'll reflect on a random topic.  It could be something specific to writing, it could be related to an article I read, etc.

Wednesdays will be Woohoo Wednesdays.  Confession time: I have a tendency to be neurotic at times, so I think this feature is excellent because it helps me pause to think about all the awesome things in my life.

Fridays will be Feature Fridays in which I'll showcase whatever manuscript I'm working on.  This is where you'll find excerpts from upcoming works, juicy tidbits about where I'm taking it next, etc.

In addition to this, I'll do occasional features about other authors, book reviews, and any random things that strike my fancy.  But at least this way I'll be consistently updating my blog three times a week.

Be sure to check back on Sunday, when I'll be featuring an interview with author Darian Wilk as part of the blog tour she's doing to spread the word about her upcoming book, Reinventing Claire.  She is an awesome, sweet lady, so I hope you'll all show her some love!
