I’m Not Modest. I’m Just Not That Interesting

September 22, 2022

I have a new book coming out.

Okay, it’s mine and nine other writers. It’s an anthology. And it’s about Christmas. And my story is science fiction.

The editor is great. His name is James Elliott and he runs a small publishing house called Anderson Publishing. James does a lot of work on each book. I respect him a lot.

But, James wants to interview me. And the subject he wants to talk about is my blog. He thinks it’s noteworthy and newsworthy. I’m trying to believe him.

Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate all y’all who read my scribblings here. Whether your a regular subscriber who gets it sent to you every day, or if you check in every now and then, I appreciate each and every one of you. And I work very hard to provide interesting and sometimes useful content.

I guess I’m just not sure how useful it is to talk about talk about blogging. It’s like talking about writing. It’s not a particularly interesting subject to me. I enjoy it. I love writing. I like just about every aspect of the writing process, world building, character development, plotting. Even editing. And, like most writers, I love to read.

But, talking about writing is about as interesting as talking about reading. Or talking about watching a movie.

So, while I appreciate my editor (he’s a really good editor,) I have to question his choice on content this time.

Stay safe
