Welcome to a special post-Easter edition of Ned’s Blog. For those who have been directed here by Ross Murray at Drinking Tips for Teens as part of the #mywritingprocess blog tour, thanks for coming. Hopefully it wasn’t for the refreshments because, regardless of what Ross might’ve told you, I stopped offering them after I found a red wine stain on my blog. In addition to those following the tour, I realize there are still others who may have stumbled onto this blog like last year’s overlooked Easter egg; understandably, you are confused and a bit hesitant to know what’s inside.
I should explain that my part of the #mywritingprocess blog tour, including answers to the four poignant questions posed so poignantly to each poignant blogger (such as “Do you think vocabulary is important?), isn’t scheduled to be posted until May 2. This allows the wisdom of the previous blogger — or in this case, what Ross said — to ferment like a fine Muscat before, eventually, someone breaks into a rendition of “Muscat Love” and, indeed, it is time to move on to the next bloggers on the tour.
So I hope you will visit again next week when I, along with Nic DiDomizio of The Nicolas Blog and Bill Pearse of Pinklightsabre’s Blog will be next on the tour. I’d like to thank Ross for inviting me to participate. If you haven’t already, visit his #mywritingprocess post which, as always, is insightful, entertaining and, as Nic would say, “will make your day less shitty.”
His words, not mine. (But I’m having T-shirts made anyway.)
In the meantime, for those who came here actually expecting to find something thoughtful on writing, here’s a link to a post about one of my biggest writing mistakes (not including that week I thought I wanted to be a cage fighter): One of the biggest mistakes of my life? That time I quite writing
You are welcome here any time. You don’t even have to call first. But I walk around naked when the kids aren’t here, so you might want to call anyway…
