A year of muttering
Tomorrow marks a year since this blog started, an experiment to see if I could bear the additional demands of a regular, newsletter-style communication with the people who like my books. I always hated getting roped into the kids’ newsletters at school, since it seemed that no sooner did we finally get one issue off to the printer’s than another one would loom up. But blogs are, I am finding, a different animal. I try to post at least twice a week, and think I’ve managed during the twelvemonth, but without a specific word count, and with complete freedom of topics, it’s more like a chat with friends than anything formal.
In other words, if you like, we’ll continue with a second year.
It’s going to be a great year to write about, too, with THE ART OF DETECTION publishing in June, so that Kate Martinelli makes a return, as well as the ongoing writing process for TOUCHSTONE, which I assume you out there in Blogland would like to follow. The book is shaping up in some very interesting ways–I think I’ll write about it later this week.
Happy anniversary, Mutterers!
