Hi readers!This is actually a premature post requesting you all to visit and/or follow my new writing blog, Voyage. See, I'm having it designed but it's taking longer than expected. I'm not angry or anything, I'm just really excited. It's going to be simple and sweet and cute, and not professional like Pages is. A pleasant change I'm looking forward to! It's going to be more personal as well, seeing as I don't feel personal posts would fit well into the character of Pages. :D

Why Start a Writing Blog?Anyway, a writing blog? I've seen many authors who had started blogging about writing and eventually got published, and I thought, "Well, that's a great idea!" Blogging has proven to be a motivator for me, knowing I had hundreds of people reading and would be disappointed in me. I've started to really enjoy reading, and reading frequently (which is great, because before, I'd only read when I had time and just toss off books and go on with my life. Now, it's just great fun).
My writing hasn't gone well. The writing itself is great, as many of me critique friends have told me, but it's like a flower. Ephemeral, short-lived, fleeting: but amazingly written. But I can't have a twenty page, unfinished novel published! I have to finish it! I mean, getting published is a reasonable dream. Not like, creating a wormhole to travel through time and space, or discovering a planet with intelligent life forms. It's going to happen eventually, but not in my life time. (I just had a vision of myself as a granny, watching television and learning that it happened. I'd eat my words then)
