Rachel Vincent and My Soul to Take or My Soul to Save (winner's choice)
I really loved doing the Blogtoberfest. It reminded me how much I enjoy daily babbling--I mean, blogging. It's a great way to connect with other people using more than 140 characters (a la Twitter). Assuming I can still communicate using more than 140 characters.
So my plan going forward is to blog more often. Hopefully every weekday, although probably not as much over the holidays and near deadlines (which this month is the same thing--fun for the whole family!).
To help me keep up the habit, the blog posts won't always be long (remember, I've lost stamina due to Twitter), and they will no longer be copied and pasted to LiveJournal and MySpace (if you're reading this here, you're obviously cool with that part). And unlike during Blogtoberfest, they won't always involve free stuff (unless you count words, which hey, aren't always free, right?).
But the posts will always, always, ALWAYS include at least two parentheses (if a set of parentheses counts as two, and probably even if it doesn't).
And they will often include random crap that cracks me up, like this video (hat tip to Curtis Brown agent Nathan Bransford:
See you back here tomorrow, when I talk about my typical rewriting process and how I'm applying it to Bring on the Night!
