I Make This Stuff Up

Lately, my life’s felt like all work andno play. Even the blogs feel like work. Worse, even the little fiction writing I’ve done has felt like work. So I’ve started a just-for-fun fiction blog at i-make-this-stuff-up.blogspot.com. It won’t earn a thing, if only because there isn’t a logical advertising niche to go with it. That doesn’t matter. In fact it’s almost the point. I write what I like, when I like, without thinking of cash at all. If I feel like being kidnapped by aliens, fine.

The result is predictable. Once I don’t have to write, I want to. Once I stop thinking about the quality, it’s actually quite good.
