True Confession: I am a lousy blogger. Not that I’m telling you anything you don’t already know. My friend MoJo has a saying: You’re best quality is also your worst quality.
The quality I’m talking about here? Single-mindedness. For the last while, I’ve been finishing the first draft of my fourth book (second one for teens), called Nix Minus One. When I’m writing, I can be extraordinarily single-minded. The characters surround me daily, they talk to me when I wake up, and it sometimes seems as though everything I see and do is related to the book in some way. I go for walks with a notebook. I go downtown with a notebook. A notebook sits by my bed. It’s wonderful. One of the real bonuses of being a writer.
And, yes, when I’m writing I can be extraordinarily single-minded. Which means that very little else gets done. Including blogging (also vacuuming). In my defence, when I’ve finished writing about Nix for the day, the last person I feel like writing about is me.
So, that’s the end of the confession….
