I do hope you'll bear with me, as I work to get my writing muscles back in shape. As part of the Maggie and Della website overhaul, I added two fictional blogs - one for Maggie and one for Della. I've been doing this off and on for years. It's my way of helping the characters develop further relationships with their readers. Blogs and other social media tools are perfect for this. It also helps me develop their voices. In the past I've had problems maintaining the blogs. Time pressures, mostly. Self-employment has its satisfactions, but spare time is not part of the success strategy. It's a 24/7 job.
This year I'll try to treat my writing in the same way. I want to write - and to sell - books and stories. That requires a greater time commitment. So, we shall see. In the meantime, I introduce you to Della Peterson: http://dellaswords.wordpress.com/
