Well, no one is going to see this but the bots as they have taken over my referral box and comment box! Alas, Askimet does not catch them and they have overridden the Kingdom at wordpress. So I’m going to leave off Blogging for awhile until they fix the referral spam problem. I’m not writing the Blog here for the bots, I’m writing it for the exercise it gives the mind, and for contact with other Writers and Authors, to see what they are doing, and to share what I have found in researching the road from Writer to Author. I’m writing less, and I find myself spending more time trying to find a way around the bots and worrying about my stats than writing, and since that is what the whole blog is for, but it has been corrupted, *sigh* I just don’t see any other option.
On a happier note, I’m going back to writing offline, of course, where I always compose. I’m about half way through the manuscript, and the decision to put my energies to that instead of fighting the bots makes me feel better already. Makes me wonder if the Blogging is really worth it? Perhaps the best author sites are true feedback sites, where they critique each others work. I think that after working on my manuscript for about a week, I’ll do some research in that arena. I’ll see you later folks! I hope the writing links provided in my blogs will help you on your way!
