So, how does one write an interesting blog that others will want to read? Good question.
The interesting part has something to do, I think, with figuring out what your passion is and writing about it.
The who will want to read it part has to do with figuring out who your blog audience is and writing for them.
As you can guess, I’m krazy about edgy crime fiction and boy do I like to write about it. But who wants to read what I write about it? That’s another good question. I’m starting to find out, but it’s a process.
A lot of people are writing about edgy Christian fiction these days. I’m not the only one. Just look around at other blogs. Go ahead, if my blog’s any good, you’ll come back.
When I look around at blogs writing about edgy Christian fiction I see a lot of articles on when to break the rules, and/or when and how to write an acceptable sex scene in Christian fiction. Sex is part of life and I can be edified by a tastefully written sex scene.
Why doesn’t anyone write about a tastefully written sitting in church scene, listening to a sermon scene? Frankly I’ve been bored to death by many a too long worship service scene. I’d like some tips on how to write a good church scene. Really, I’m not being cute.
At this point I have to confess, I’ve never written a sex scene. There, I’ve admitted it. Now do you feel better having dragged it out of me?
I’m always talking about being authentic as a murder mystery writer. Well I think blog writers should also be authentic. The good ones are. Honesty goes a long way. People know when they’re being fed a bunch of canned crap. [I was going to change “crap” to “bologna” so as not to offend, but decided that wouldn’t be authentic. Is there such a thing as canned bologna anyway?]
So, here I am plunking away at my keyboard, vowing with all my heart to really put it out there and let the process unfold. Ghee, even I want to see what I’ll write. LOL
