I have a confession to make.
I have no idea what to blog about.
I’ve read that blogging for fiction writers is supposedly a lot tougher than it is for non-fiction writers, because those lucky non-fiction writers can share scientific studies, related articles and so on, whereas we less-than-fortunate fiction writers are a little doomed in that regard. I mean, as a contemporary fantasy writer, what can I share with you? How to make elven alcohol? (Okay, in that one aspect I probably can. We make our own alcohol in this house.) The difference in height and ageing between ljusalfa and dokkalfa? Or just how offensive it is to call a dokkalfa ‘svartalfa’?
If I’m not careful I could easily start talking--okay, possibly ranting--about PC and Xbox games instead, since I spend a chunk of my life hammering the buttons on my Xbox controller and swearing abuse at whichever character is proving hard to deal with. I’m not a particularly unbiased reviewer though (and I’m starting to suspect few are), so I don’t think I have a career in that ahead of me.
I could talk about what I’m reading. That I could manage, even if, much like the games I play, I’m not exactly unbiased.
So I’m spoiled for choice and finding my options narrowing at the same time. Any suggestions?
