Everything you read on the Internet says a good author should have a blog. My thoughts on that are wildly contrasting. I typically spend most, if not all, of my writing energy in creating a new story or building a new world in my imagination. I enjoy writing for same reason I enjoy watching movies or reading a book or playing video games like Assassin’s Creed (BTW really awesome series. Just throwing that out there.). That reason being the story
Truthfully, I plan out a novel to a certain extent. That way I can drop little hints along the way even in book one of a three part series. Eh’hm The Resilient. But that same novel can sometimes take own its own life and take you where it wants you to go. For instance the big twist in The Resilient: Out of the Forbidden wasn’t planned. Matter of fact it made me go back to the very beginning and redo the entire backstory. But it was too good of an idea to throw away.
Conversely, blog writing feels a little more fluid. Without a rigid train of thought, I could see it diverging quickly into the ramblings of a mad man. Like writing a journal while you’re falling asleep. What once was a coherent thought, by morning became illegible scribbles.
But I digress, if writing a blog is important to readers, then write a blog I shall.
I’m not sure who will ever actually read this. The vagueness of the Internet strikes again. But if you are reading this, then I hope you continue to follow these posts. I’m not sure yet where the next one will go. Some behind the scenes work of my upcoming novel. An epitaph to a fallen leaf. The possibilities are endless.
Adam K. Ogden is a new author, diving into the different worlds of fiction. After penning his debut novel The Resilient: Out of the Forbidden, writing became a new passion. When he's not spending his free time at a computer writing out some new adventure, he's usually either watching movies or playing music.
