#48 Daily Writing Journal: Planning my Blog, my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress!
Planning my Blog
Inspired by my writing friend, Raven Black, I'm thinking of planning my blog. Check out her blog. Not sure because I'm not a planner. I purposely chose a career where I needed to do little planning. Planning makes me feel constricted but it does have it's benefits. But where do I start? Normally when I plan, I either get stuck in the planning stages or by the time I'm completely I lose interest. No harm in trying. She said it took her a week to plan her blog.
I guess my biggest takeaway from reading Raven's blog was finding out my goal. Her was to improve her social media presence by being consistent, and it has worked. I tend to flirt with social media - that includes blogging. The benefit of this is having a more rounded blog....not just me moaning about writing or colds or editing.
I guess my biggest goal would be to promote my writing but I don't think blogging does that. However I do have different creative outlets - drawing - badly, cartooning, designing other stuff etc.
I'll work something out. We'll see.
Progress Update: my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica
Not too good at the moment. I missed out a complete day because it was complex material - well at least to me. I did about 30 minutes yesterday and 30 minutes this morning so maybe I'll pick up momentum. I aim to do at least an hour a day. So I'm behind schedule by at least an hour and half - an hour on Sunday and half on Monday. I can catch up today.
OUTLOOK: From what I've done, I have a lot of work to do...so I hope I make my publication date.
I'm looking at quite a bit of rewriting. I don't think I actually start writing until week 18 which is the third part of the revision course. Saying that, it's an adventure and it allows me to manage my time a lot better. I just need to ensure I don't fall behind. So I've got 15 more lessons before than.
