It was calm down by the marshes and I spotted this heron, standing so still that there wasn’t even a ripple in the water around him.
It is a time to reflect as the year draws to a close, and for me 2012 has been momentous – I got a book deal! And next year I will see my book in print!
I have also been reflecting on the direction of this blog. When I started it was simply going to be a writing blog, on which I would chronicle my journey to publication. But I’ve found myself blogging about other things along the way, and, since there are so many writers out there chronicling their journeys, I find myself wondering if I should change focus here.
So I thought I would ask you, my blog readers, what sort of things you would like to see more of.
Do you want to see more about writing in general and the process of publication?
Do you prefer my more general posts on the natural history and strange and quirky things I encounter in the countryside around where I live?
Would you like to hear about the science behind the themes that inspired Red Rock?
A combination of all three?
Or something else?
