Oh, what the hell:

I just set this up for something to do. :) I probably won't update it as often as some of you do yours, but oh well. I'll probably end up posting all the reviews on here too.

It's how I choose to spend my spare time. I don't read at home anymore. I spend my time talking about reading instead, but I still have at least 3 hours a day of reading time, so it's not really to the detriment of reading!

You also become part of the community and therefore you start to feel that you are missing out on something if you don't update your own blog, and visit others!

I don't watch a lot of TV and I treat working on my blogs as a wind-down activity once the day job is done. This is the way I treat making movies of the novels and soundtracks too. If you imagine your life as a large glass bowl. Into this bowl you have to put several large stones and a load of smaller stones and gravel. For me, stuff like blogging, cross stitching, movie-making are the smaller stones and gravel. The big stones are family, day job and another stone called sundry unavoidables. If you put the small stones and gravel in first then there will be no room for the big stones, but if you put the big stones in first, you can trickle all the small stuff around them fill all the air pockets and little spaces - as I'm doing now by checking the forum while I have a mug of tea!

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I invite authors to guest post, do interviews and try to write about stuff I think is important. I don't update my blog daily, like many people do, but that's less about time - blog entries don't take all that much time for me to write - than lack of inspiration. I also don't want my blog to turn into a Look-at-Me Zone. :eek: I didn't set out to do a blog specifically about me, but rather about the broader aspects of reading and writing historical fiction. Like EC, I often blog as a wind-down activity. I'm not a big TV watcher, either, though I am hooked on Ugly Betty and HBO's vampire series, True Blood.
