For a while now, I’ve been toying with the idea of incorporating my stories and creative nonfiction pieces into this blog, but thought that it might disrupt the tone and the types of posts I normally write. So I decided to create a separate-but-linked site called Changeling Scribbles where I could publish my narratives in serial form (not serial killer form, mind you – that’s a different blog entirely – but in installments). I think working like this will help me a) force myself to actually keep writing every day, b) finish some of the ideas that have been floating around my laptop forever, c) stick to a schedule, since hopefully people will be anticipating the next chapter, and d) start getting used to the idea of people actually reading my writing, since I’m typically very private about my works in progress.
The beauty of this arrangement is that if you’re interested in reading my stories, you can follow this other blog, but if that sounds like one of the most boring/terrible/torturous propositions in the world, you don’t have to!
My first post on the new blog, changelingscribbles.wordpress.com, will go up on Monday.
I’m kinda nervous.
But I think this will be a fun experiment, even if no one ends up reading it.
