I give up. Plan and simple.
I’m no good at this whole planned blogging thing. In fact, I suck at it. When I plan out a post, put a lot of thought and research into it, I get less readers and comments then if I just wing it.
Why is that? Why is it that when I plot out blog posts I get less views than when I free write them? Is it because when people read blogs they want a more intimate feel?
I have no idea. But it’s run true for me. I plan and plot and research and nothing. I write what comes to me and bam there I go.
Does this hold true for my novel and short stories as well? Do I write better when I don’t pay attention to the “rules”? Should I just throw in the towel and let my writing be?
