Are all writers bad at blogging or just me?

So here’s my day.

I wake up at 4:30 a.m., sleepwalk my way through feeding the pets and making coffee, then sit down at my computer and start working on a WIP, revising a finished manuscript, or doing query research or my polished manuscript.

Then I go to work where I essentially sit at a computer all day and, you guessed it, write. So more of the same with less enjoyment but more income attached.

I try to get to the gym at lunch or get out for a walk just to get the blood flowing, during which I’m usually listening to a book.

Needless to say, there are a lot of words in my day. So when I have some extra time, I don’t really want to write more.

And that’s the story of why I haven’t blogged since January. Pretty sad, huh?

However, this week I attended the Writer’s Digest Conference and in the way these things tend to do, it left me completely energized, more well connected, and inspired.

I’m pretty active on Twitter, but now that I have a polished work that I will begin querying soon, I want to build up my platform more. And except for one wretched Twitter troll, the writing community is so helpful and supportive that I’m anxious to have another platform to connect with everyone, including the people who (perhaps wisely) avoid Twitter.

So I hereby vow to blog more. I’m going to dedicate one morning a week of my 5 a.m. writing time to blogging.

The forthcoming blogs will be much more useful than this one, I promise!
