Dear Miss Snark:
I'm itching to blog on writing and genre related topics. In addition to garden-variety craft topics, I'd like to be the calm voice of reason and plain speaking in some vociferous debates. And I want to do it in my own forum rather than an e-mail list owned by someone else. My opinions, like those expressed on Whattayaknow, would all be well-reasoned and insightful. And, in all seriousness, I wouldn't attack anyone -- especially not publishers and agents. Is this dangerous territory for a wannabe published author? Would a blog on writing be frowned upon by prospective agents and editors, or would they not care as long as I wasn't nasty?
And the reason you're writing a blog is?
Cause you aren't doing your WRITING!!!
And well-reasoned, insightful opinions with no snark....yawn central.
Why on earth would you create a blog that is...perish the thought...boring?
It's not dangerous in the sense that people will hate you, it's VERY dangerous in the sense people will think you're dull.
Focus on your writing.
Focus on your craft.
Leave the blogging to people like Miss Snark who are mean and cruel and enjoy torturing helpless writers.
