The year ahead

I’m planning to put a bit more into my blog this year. Really, give it the old college try, dontcha know? It won’t be a daily thing so don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not crazy. Well maybe I’m a little bit crazy, but I’m not that crazy! I’m hoping to hit at least 3 or 4 posts a week. Sometimes I’ll post photos, sometimes quotes, sometimes stories, sometimes random mumbo jumbo like this, and throughout it all I’ll be keeping up with Friday Fictioneers of course. Only a couple days of the month will be predetermined with special features. What are they? Well I’m glad you asked. Oh, you didn’t? Well you should have, so I’ll tell you anyway. Here’s the plan:

  • Six on the Sixth (on the 6th): I’ll share six stories, six words each. If enough of you are interested in this I’d like to make it a group outing of sorts complete with linkup for you all to share in the fun. I’ll add some prompts if it would be helpful for anyone interested. Let me know your thoughts on this, my dearest minions. It’s a great exercise to get the creative juices flowing.
  • Creature Feature (on the 13th): I’ll share a tale of a cryptid/monster with an original drawing that represents my interpretation of the beast in question. Warning: some of the drawings may be horrendously bad if I don’t have a lot of time to put into them, but they should at least be good for a laugh if that’s the case.
  • Storybook Corner (on the 21st): I plan to make this one a 300 (+/- 25) word story. The idea is to make this one a prompt also if anyone else is interested. What say you, minion? Are you in?
  • Destination: Weirdsville (on the last day of each month): I’ll be telling you a tale of one of our planet’s countless mysterious/weird places. Pack your bags and take the journey with me.

Shameless plug time! Pick up a copy of my new short story, Socks, and start your year off right. A room full of 6th graders can’t be wrong. Read the reviews, you’ll understand.

Let me know your thoughts on my prompt ideas. I’ll still be sticking to this schedule regardless, but it’ll be more fun (and easier to stick to) if you all come along for the ride with me.

Dipping my toes in the stream

I’ve been thinking for awhile about what to do with my blog. Currently it has no direction and I’m not really cool with that. I’m a go with the flow kind of guy, but I’m not sure my blog should follow the poor example I set for it.

I’m going to try a little experiment and designate Wednesdays as Weird and Wacky Wednesdays. The plan is to explore a new topic every week. Cryptids, unusual places, odd news stories, tales of the paranormal. If it’s weird or wacky, it fits the bill.

If you’ve got any suggestions on topics you’d like me to dive into, feel free to drop a comment below and let me know.

The rest of the week will be as random as always, I may post every day, I may only post for Friday Fictioneers. I figure I should wade into a blog schedule one step at a time. No point in rushing into anything and burning myself out. And what better way to start wading in than with something fun and lighthearted like Weird and Wacky Wednesdays?

Keep your eyes peeled on Wednesday for the first of hopefully many explorations into the weird world we live in.

You may now return to whatever it was that my very important blog post has pulled you away from.
