I’ve decided to create a few writing-related features because I want to start sharing more writing on this blog. Unfortunately, I’m also getting rid of two features because I don’t want to clutter my blog with things I don’t feel like doing anymore.
Of the two writing link-ups I’m participating in, only one of them involves sharing snippets of my writing so this feature is for sharing bits and pieces of prose from my WIPs. Basically, I will screenshot a couple of paragraphs here and there from chapters I’ve written recently and maybe provide some context.
By WIPs I’m not only referring to novels, but also shortstories I may be working on. This is probably the feature I am most excited for because I know I haven’t shared that much writing on my blog yet.
Unlike bits and pieces, this feature is going to focused on a single (short) piece that will have been edited. Poetry/prose is going to be dedicated to sharing pieces that (might have been rejected but) were worked on for a few weeks. I hate the thought of my work gathering dust in a folder so I’m going to use my blog to share it with you guys.
features to be archived
Writing this “blog update” post forced me to be realistic and reconsider what features I want to spend my time working on. So the features below will be archived because I lost interest in them.
I’ve only done two discussion posts so far and (that was a while ago but) I had big plans to continue with this. I guess somewhere along the way, I forgot about them. Right now, I feel like it’s a bit pointless keeping this feature alive so I’m just going to archive it. (If I do end up writing posts that discuss bookish or writing-related things, I’ll just categorize them as miscellaneous. )
The first post was received pretty well….but I think this series is just going to result in a bunch of filler posts that I’ll write up when I don’t feel like being creative..And I want to be more creative so a post series like this that basically encourages me to be lazy has to go.
I’m know I’m very indecisive when it comes to blogging – always trying to change things up (features, themes, even blog names) – but thank you guys so much for sticking with me!
