I have kind of realized something lately…blogging is a great way to avoid working on my book. I get that I am supposed to be writing at least a chapter a month…I also get that I haven’t touched it in 6 months. My great excuse is that I have no time. But really, I seem to find time to update my blog most days. If I could just channel my blog writing time into book writing time I would be done the darn thing already.
Another realization I have come to is that most other bloggers are also avoiding working on their books. I wonder how many would-be novelists are out there? I am always surprised by the number of people I meet who are thinking of writing a book, or actively writing a book. I wonder how many of us will actually finish the book, and have it be good enough to get published? I think it is a total pipe dream for me but I will hold on to the pipe dream because I think as far as dreams go, it is a good one. In the meantime, I will keep working on my blog :-).
