Yay! I finally did it! I created a new writing blog for myself here on WordPress. As the title says, this blog is going to be about writing and other creative endeavours. That means that while I will still (once again) put up a writing-related post on Thursdays, you’ll also get other occasional entries regarding the various ways I like to be creative. So there may be entries on photography, or costuming, or cooking, or jewelry-making, or whatever I have a whim to post.
But I’ve missed writing about writing. I don’t always have anything deep or profound to say, but I really enjoyed sharing tidbits of what I’d learned about the craft on The Melt-Ink Pot. Unfortunately, all of my co-bloggers over there had serious attacks of Real Life, and no longer had the time and attention to devote to it, so it has gone away.
However, that doesn’t mean that all of the past wisdom I’ve shared with you has gone away as well! Thanks to the wonders of WordPress, I was able to import all of my old blog entries from The Melt-Ink Pot. That, I have to admit, was one of the key factors in my decision to go with WordPress as a platform. Eventually, I’ll get things set up so that my personal web domain points here, too. But for the time being, I’ve at least got a place to come and blog again. It feels so good!
I’ve been saving up all kinds of good ideas for postings, too. Such as:
- My experiences at the writer’s workshop at this year’s World Science Fiction Convention
- How I did on my Summer Writing Challenge
- Rules for Safe Brainstorming
- Reasons to avoid wordy writing
- Writing goals
- And lots of other fun stuff!
So that’s what we’ve got to look forward to in the next few weeks. In the meantime, welcome to my new blog. Hope you enjoy it as much as I intend to!
