I totally spaced today’s post. It’s that whole second-week-of-the-month timing that catches me. Whoops. I’ve been hard at work trying to get my POVs rewritten, and it’s pretty mind-consuming. I struggled and struggled with introducing a detail to one POV. Eventually, I decided I’d skip trying to put this detail in its own chapter and just add it to the scene where a side character is introduced. I don’t know if it works yet. I won’t find out until next week. I’m making progress, though. I’ve got three chapters left on my rearrange-events task list, then I’ll start tightening the individual chapters. (Hopefully, anyway. I might find more I need to rearrange.) Regardless, the end is in sight!
IWSG Question of the Month – What turns you off when visiting an author’s website/blog? Lack of information? A drone of negativity? Little mention of author’s books? Constant mention of books?
I visit authors to get a glimpse inside their lives, maybe through them telling me about about an experience, where they are at with their struggles, or something they find fascinating or something they learned. I love the tidbits they discover through research or tricks they think are useful. I’ll read stories posted, though I might not comment, but I enjoy following along.
I don’t often visit people who just relay advice, how-tos, or otherwise tell me what to do. I, occasionally, seek them out if I’m looking to learn something, but to keep me coming back, I need a relationship that doesn’t feel like the other person is trying to help me all the time as if I need help. (That might be my conceit talking.)
It’s the people (all you people) that keep me coming back.
How are you coming along with your personal goals? What do you like about other author’s websites/blog? What don’t you like?
