pile of books
I’m sure a tower of books will happen

Rewrites are harder then they look. Mostly because what I need to say is there, but not right, so whatever I’m writing has to be fixed up.  The same hold true with this blog. Even though it is less than twenty-four hours old, I feel that it has a lot of potential and it’s worth the effort. In the process, I’ve learned blogs are very much an important part of being a writer.

The problem is, I have to work the idea of publishing a blog post in my head, then I need to write it out.  It’s a whole new facet to my wiring that I have little experience with, but one I need to learn.  I’ve had the opportunity to go and read some very informative blogs and have some more knowledge of what it means to be a writer and a blogger.
In doing so, I’ve learned it’s hard to fly, and within the last day, I’m learning the fine art of falling flat on my face then picking myself up only to finish what I started and to fall again.

I’m sure the blog will have success and people will come and read it, but blogging is a lot harder than it looks.

There are numbers and figures a novice blogger can’t even begin to process in the day, but is expected to if they want to have success with their writing.  This is even more true if the goal is to have more readers, especially if they’re the ones who will read your books when they are published.
I’m excited about the prospect of getting a website and publishing my first book. With that in mind, here comes the hard part; writing three more books and having them published in a reasonable time, all the while not letting this blog (and any others I might create) fall to the wayside.  It’s important that people have the chance to see what others have to offer.

In other news, Siebenburgen, which is also known to many as Transylvania, is foremost on my mind. That book, about the Transylvanian Saxons of Romania and their experiences of the Second World War, needs to be finished by middle of September. Challenging though it may be, I feel I can do the writing.

I just have to fall on my face a couple of times, and blogging will be my way to learn how to get right back up after a face-plant.
