No, this is not a how-to-get-followers post and no this is not of high quality like Elana's series from a month ago. It is simply some self-reflection.
Okay, now that everyone has runaway:
When I started blogging in January, I came out of nowhere. Literally, I had rarely been online before then and a lot of people noticed my presence right away. I am not sure why or how, but I had a lot of fun back then. I was a novelty. A shiny new toy to play with who got fifty followers in three weeks. Then, it turned out I had responsibilities and bills to pay. My writing life flat-lined and I have been grasping at straws since, hoping I'll be able to breathe again. I think I have found new life with my latest WiP, which I am calling a DystUrban Fantasy. Catchy, huh? Okay, so I started a miniplotmapthing on a scrap piece of paper at work the other week and that's where I am: outlining. I have never really outlined before and many people say they hate it and just as many people swear by it. All I know is whatever I was doing before with STEPBROTHERS was not working. Maybe it was just life, but leaving that MS behind felt so good and working on this adventure is just awesome.
So now I am in this weird transitional time. Should I comment on everyone's blog so that I can start growing again? Should I just sit idle and let the blog carry itself? Should I lobby to be interviewed by someone? Ha. I don't know the answer and I am not even trying to figure it out. It'll just happen as it wishes.
One thing I do know is the support you folks have given me has been very powerful. You pushed me to start school and you pushed me to think highly of myself, even when I thought myself worthless. I will always remember that.
