I have to tell you right now that I’m not feeling the blogging thing lately. It’s always been a struggle for me to come up with something to say that doesn’t seem overly promotional, or know-it-all-writery (I don’t know it all, and I don’t think I have any business giving writing advice), or fakely personal in order to “build my brand” as this fascinating, witty person whose books you’ll all want to read.
I’ve written four blog posts so far tonight and this one is the closest to being even remotely fit for public consumption. So I’m just going to throw in the towel and turn the tables on you (and mix up a bunch of metaphors into an awkward stew), and ask you what you want me to talk about.
What are you looking for when you come to a book blog or a writer’s blog? What do you like to read about? Are you tired of hearing about an author’s latest release or her writing process, or is that what you really want to know?
Since it’s a Saturday, I have the rare luxury of being able to check back frequently and make this a little conversation throughout the day, if anyone’s so inclined (after a reasonable wake-up time on the US West Coast—reasonable to me being noonish). So this one’s on you, Obsessive Reader. Ask me anything. ;)
