New Blog Direction

OK, so I haven't posted a blog entry for awhile, because I created this blog for a reading course in a grad program at Seton Hill University. I'm currently in its excellent (and I mean truly excellent) Writing Popular Fiction program, working on my thesis of writing a novel. I entertained the idea of having a blog before, but never actually did it until I joined this program, since it was a requirement, as I said.

I have to admit that although I enjoy writing entries on my blog, it also feels kind of weird. Like I'm talking to the world, but in reality the world doesn't give a crap. Well, that's what it feels like, anyway. Like I'm shouting, "Hey - here I am! Listen to me!" You know?

*Dead silence*

Oh, right. I forgot...

Anyyyyway....since I'm done with that particular course (a horror reading course - and it was horrifyingly fun) at Seton Hill, I'd been thinking about what to do with this blog. I mean, now I have this blog, right? I wasn't sure what to post, though, but NOW I have an idea. Since I've been writing a novel (well, two - one for the program like I said, and one on the side) and I'm nearing completion of it (I'm referring to the one on the side here), I figured I might as well chronicle that novel's journey. Not just to completion, but also my search for literary agents/publishers and anything perhaps remotely related to the writing/publishing world.

Exciting, huh?

*Dead silence*

Oh, right. Whew! OK, anyway, my new goal is to post a blog entry AT LEAST once a week with a typically writing-related subject, though I guess I might post other things that randomly grab my fancy - oooh, shiny object! - from time to time.

I guess that's it for now! So stay tuned, everyone........
