When I started this blog two years ago, I envisioned it as a writers’ blog. But I quickly discovered that I could not write too much on the topic. Only other writers are remotely interested in reading works in progress – the others want to see the finished product…
Neither are many people willing to listen to “writer whining.” My concerns about plot, character development, POV, etc. really are not relevant to their world – they want to see all that resolved, and sitting prettily between two covers…
(She sighs…) So since I couldn’t write about writing all the time, I developed my other categories… and I’ve had a great time…
But after 372 posts, I feel it is time to revamp the blog. It will keep the same name but will have new categories and pages:
Vida Latina: Mexican and Latin American art, culture, language, history, music, food, festivals
Writing: I will post short stories and so on from time to time
Destinations: Trips I have taken, current trips, Trips I want to take
Guest Bloggers: Posts by other bloggers (send me your posts, starting today…)
Family and Friends: Special occasions and remembrances
Commentary: Current events: social & political
All my former posts will remain in the Archive.
It goes without saying that this re-structuring will take me a while to complete… I am not very technically inclined.
I hope you’ll enjoy the new “Writing From Merida”
