To Blog or Not to Blog?
OK. We’re working on our sixth novel, so we seem to have the writing thing down---at least for now. But the whole blogging culture has us more than a little puzzled (and we’re trying to learn MySpace at the same time.) With a book, we make up characters, a story and go from there. It’s our job to take you on a ride and to make it as enjoyable as possible. We get it—we use our imaginations. We know how it works. We know why you read. BUT blogging seems to have the potential to be endlessly uninteresting. Of course there will be subjects we think are absolutely worthy of note—and of blog. There are occasional moments of whimsy, glamour and excitement in our little world, but as a general rule, life can be routine, mundane---like Donna moving furniture to get ready for the painter and Virginia nearly setting her place on fire because she didn’t look to see if the sandwich was wrapped in foil before she turned on the microwave—but do you wanna know this?
And while we most definitely have opinions and observations about zillions of things—What did the end of The Sopranos really mean? Is the new diet drug Alli worth having to wear Depends? How lazy has TV become when they’re now televising Bingo? Since when is stupid cute? Is concentrated laundry detergent a ripoff---i.e. the same formula we could have been using less of all along? But the question is does anybody want to read what we think about this stuff? And more importantly do we really want to write about it? So the question stands—to blog or not to blog? Or maybe it’s really what to blog.
