A change of heart
I have had a rethink about posting photographs in this writing blog. It was certainly an easy way to provide a varied diet; but is that what you want? If you are heavily into writing, then pictures might not be your thing. On the other hand, if you are a photographer, would you really want to wade through all those words for the occasional picture? Probably not. This was a classic case of not considering the audience before launching out; a big 'no, no' for any writer.
So, dear readers, I have decided to focus on doing both things well, rather than both badly. From today, no more pictures in the writing blog. Instead, I have decided to serialise the novel I have been working on, "Past Life". Two reasons, serialising it will help me finish the editing and ensure that I have a completed story. Secondly, I started this story two years ago as a futuristic crime thriller (or something) and already real life is starting to eat away at my story line; so better publish soon.
The second thing I have done is start "fordy's photo blog" - no words, just pictures. Well, not quite true; each picture has a title and some technical information about the picture, but that is it. You can find "fordy's photo blog" at: www.photos.fords.co.nz or use the link at the top right of the front page. Enjoy.
