The Theme of the Year

I've been lazing around in front of a January fire (I hope fellow writers will find that amusing.) thinking about how to approach 2010, specifically this here blog! And I've come up with a few ideas, but since I have some people who drop in to read what I write I thought I'd ask for a vote before I launch into a theme.



Here are my ideas. Feel free to give me the raspberry  if your vote's a nay or the happy face if it's a yea!






1. 2010 in pictures: post a picture and comment on what's new or reinvented or just plain fun, scary etc. (My family has already given this one its first raspberry.)

2. All about writing: interviews with /information about writers, bloggers, editors, agents, what's hot, what's not.

3. All about the ups and downs of my writing year. What I'm working on. My stuck moments. My successful writing day--let's hope I can make that plural. My rejections. My rejections. My rejections. My journeys to new places in search of my muse who sometimes vacations. In other words just a journal of C. Lee's writing progress or lack thereof in 2010.

4. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If you take the time to drop in, what would you like to find here?

  1. I don't mind a picture now and then. :-) But I'd love to see you do #2 and #3. I can never get enough writing info (judging by the endless number of blogs I read on the topic!) and I love hearing about people's unique writing journeys.

  2. I agree with Anna. A little combo of all three would work, but more focus on 2 and 3.

  3. Hey Lee--
    I agree--a little of everything. I like it when people set up a structure for their blog and have a day they address a specific theme or topic.

  4. Mix it up! It's fun to read about a variety of subjects and interests. Well, for me anyway - but you asked. :)

  5. Yep, I like variety, too. I loved your summer video series!

  6. I think Anna said it perfectly.

  8. I'm a mix-it-up type. That gives wiggle room for anything that compels you to post.

  9. I like the the combo also. I agree with Mel. Your summer video series was great.

  10. A mix!!! Oh thank you. Thank you. I thought I'd be stuck with a "THEME." I'm so not someone who can stay on any path for long, so I'm jumping up and down here.

    Hmmm. Maybe a "jumping up and down video" would be interesting. Off to do something about that.

  11. What I say isn't too original but, maybe #1 at the end of the week if you feel like it?

    #2 and #3 are top notch! Can't wait.

  12. I think the vote is in; a mix of #2 and #3 with a picture at the end of the week.

    Ultimately you should write about what you want to write about, what makes you comfortable and content. That comfort and contentment will then be past on to us.

  13. So it seem that's exactly what I'll do, Bish. Stay tuned.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
