Not much has been happening on this blog for the last two weeks. It would be nice to say that without the updating I’d be doing more actual work on my WIP, but that’s not as true as I would like it to be. I have been much less frantic though. Therefore although not much actual writing has got done more of my brain space has been available for untangling plot problems and the like.
My insecurity this month has been about this blog. Lots of seasoned bloggers out there say that the way to success is to update religiously three times a week. I’m starting to think that this may all be very well if a book is actually written, but that in my case constantly striving to update a blog is eating in to time that would be better spent on something else.
Of course, if I’m not updating keenly all the time does that mean I’ll start losing the precious handful of followers that I have? Hopefully not. I’d like to think that not constantly updating because I feel I must will lead to posts with better, less rushed content. Plus, some of that extra time is going to put into reading other people’s blogs. I’d like to have time to properly sit down and read Bel Anderson’s Sunday Snog and to read some of the stories at Loonyliterature. Both of which I have been intending to do for ages.
This is what I’m hoping. But I’m still feeling a bit insecure about the irregular posting.

How is everyone else this month?
