It was back on February 12th of this year that I raised the idea of Blog Conversations here.
At first, they were only on Mondays and Wednesdays since I hadn’t yet finished the 95 Tales in my Story Bazaar—Fridays were added in June.
And, if you’re new here, the other days of the week are reserved for re-blogs from a bevy of valuable sources…
So, here we are on one of the Friday phases of conversation and I came to the conclusion that it might be a good time to consider what we can discuss in the future…
By the way, the last conversation we were having stopped today because there were no comments on its last post—that’s the way it goes—reader comments keep the conversations going—my creativity begins new conversations…
Yet, there are times in a blogging career when my creativity seems to have gone on vacation without me, this being one of those days; so, Creativity’s cousin, Cleverness, stepped up and said, “Alex, don’t strain that brain, look back at all the conversations so far, list them, and ask the kind folks out there to suggest more topics, eh?”
And, I said, “Whoa! How clever of you...”.
So, here’s the list of titles of discussions we’ve had, so far:
Aids for Writers
How and Why Writers Write
Different Types of Readers
Traditional vs Self-Published Book Promotion
Choosing What to Read
“What Should I Write?”
Reading like a Writer
Truth in Fiction
Charming and Surprising Books
Traditional vs Self Publishing
Readers as Gatekeepers
Issues with Traditional Publishing
Escaping with Books ~ or ~ Escaping into Books
Now, I fully concede, any of those topics could be discussed again, and yet again; though, for now, I’m asking the Spirits of Blogging to come to my aid and inspire you to suggest other topics we might discuss here…
Are you game?
O.K.—remember, the general subjects that are allowable are Reading, Writing, and Publishing; but, any topic you can squeeze into those broad categories is just fine…
Will you help me…?
Can you spare a few minutes of your time dealing with a desperately complex world to offer your ideas?
I hope so…
But… If no one shares a comment with a topic idea (or, two…), I’ll shake my creativity awake and track one down……… :-)
