shower epiphiny

I wasn't going to blog this evening. I was grumbly, and whiny and I didn't want that to be my inspiration or my topic. I mean I stared at the blank area and all, but didn't type.

Then I took my shower, and was just thinking about this and that. Oh, I know, ideas are my strong suit. Follow-through, not so much, but ideas? I got 'em! I was thinking about Fran's story blog. It didn't really take of like she was hoping. Like I was hoping, too. Does that mean a story blog wouldn't work, though?

I mean, people are trying out new paradigms of publishing on the web, in different media: music, comics, magazines, and of course, blogs. I started blogging as a way to communicate, but also as a discipline of daily writing. What if I take that discipline a step further? I mean, I have this story in my mind. I've been working it out and planning it for a good while, now. I've even written up some of it, but of course it isn't anywhere near finished... Would it make a blog? Would anyone be interested in reading that? I mean, I feel like I'm a decent writer, but it would be my "first novel" with all that implies. A page a day novel. In blog format. Hmmm.... Am I crazy?

Not in the least are you crazy! The problem can be one of copyright, but if it's all on your blog and is obviously your content, then that should be okay, I imagine.

I say go for it!
