They do say that the road to hell (which I don’t believe in, of course) is paved with good intentions, and if that were the case then I would certainly be well on my way to having my eyes pricked with knitting needles by Satan for all eternity.
My novel is dominating, at the moment, and no matter how often I promise myself I’ll make a conscious effort at getting back into a regular blogging routine, I just don’t seem to have enough words and energy left over — most days, at least. I strongly suspect that this will not last, however. It’s a fairly huge project (my early estimates suggest somewhere between 150,000 words and 200,000) and it’s extremely important, as I’m sure you can imagine, to get the early chapters well and truly nailed down so that I can be completely sure of whether the novel is going to go the way I want it to. Once this stage is out the way, though, I’ll probably settle back into a more balanced routine.
In the meantime, however, I’m lining up a few guest bloggers to help keep Gary William Murning Online active and entertaining. If you’re interested in contributing something, please feel free to drop me a line — but bear in mind the themes of my website. If you’re a Christian blogger, for example, it’s pretty unlikely that I’ll use anything that relates to your Christianity. That doesn’t mean that I won’t be interested in anything else you may be prepared to offer. All I want is to keep it relevant to my particular interests/obsessions.
And, of course, I will still be contributing myself. I have a lot planned for this site and mine will never be just an editorial presence. Apart from anything else, I’m too opinionated for that ;)
Finally, I think it’s fairly likely that I will be posting samples of As Morning Shows the Day some time during the next few weeks. So remember to keep checking back (add me to your feedreader, if you haven’t already, or follow me on Twitter or by email, AOL etc, so as not to miss the announcement.)
