How long has it been?

A friend's blog is celebrating 6 months online. As it happens, I started this blog exactly 8 months ago, Dec 6, 2008. I've been getting around 100 visits per months lately. Is that enough for me to continue? Sure, why not? If I were in this for eyeballs, I would have quit long ago.

This blog is a place for me to practice writing, and to expose some of my fiction to the world. There are other places that might be more suitable for me to write on other topics. However, this is a place for writing about fiction, and about the creative process associated with that. Will it be any good? Hell, I don't know. All I know is that this is the place for me to do something that I've never really done before, and see if I can do it properly.

And if I can't do it properly? I guess we'll just have to see about improving my skills until I *can* do it properly. The more I do this, the more I find it means a lot to me. When I first started, I thought I was pretty good. The more I do it, the more I come to realize that I'm not very good, but I am getting better. One day, I think I'll be good enough to be able to achieve what I want to achieve. And what is that?

I'll let you know, when I get there.


  1. Tony,

    I always enjoy it when bloggers give some kind of time frame to their work--and eight months is a heck of a long time! Congrats, and I hope you continue.

    As for the writing, it looks like we're in the same group there--Once upon a time, thought I had something going for myself, but every day I find myself learning something new and seeing my writing as a tiny piece in the expanse of everything I have read, written, and have yet to read and write.

    Great observation--and do keep us updated. ;)


  2. Weronika,

    Thanks for the encouragement! Putting my fiction (and my thoughts about it) up on a blog has been an enlightening experience. I'm looking forward to continuing it.

    Good luck with yours, too. Writing a tricky thing - so easy to do, so difficult to do well.

  3. Well, if you didn't have this place, I wouldn't have followed your tweet back here when you were talking about your story. Now we are connected, and when being a writer can be so lonely, it's a great thing to have.

    Let's keep at it together :o)
