I only have time for a short, halfhearted post this morning because I have a daughter who might have tonsillitis and needs to go to the doctor. When will winter be over???
But I would like to ask a question of the more experienced bloggers out there.
How much do you talk about your WIP on your blog?
I assume for all the writers out there that you have a WIP, maybe more than one, and maybe you have finished works that are as yet unpublished. I'm working on my first novel and I'm excited about it. I think I've got lots of really cool ideas and can really make something of them. (Don't worry, the hyper-critical part of me will kick in when I actually get those ideas down on paper in words.) So I have the urge to talk about it... a lot. I want to discuss my cool plot ideas, my characters, my world...
But I am also afraid to put that kind of thing up publicly on the internet. I've had ideas stolen before and it's not a good feeling. It's like getting punched in the stomach. And I really love some of the ideas I've been getting lately.
Plus, there's the question of, how much do I want to give away? By talking about it will I interest people or bore them? How much information about my story would be too much?
How do you talk about your writing?
