Where is Mr. Aardvark?

by Mitch on 13/09/2004

I am really falling back in the make-mental-notes-and-blog-everything swing of things, which feels really good after about a month of so of being very sporadic. My weblog is honestly a huge part of my life and I really hate to think of what I’d be like without it. It’s a part of who I am and I am glad that I am back into writing more frequently.

I am considering re-integrating the weblog back to the main page at www. instead of weblog., because I seem to be getting around a thousand hits a month to the main page, but only about 60% of those hits are coming the extra click to the weblog, which is the main feature.

For about the last 2 months I have had a story rolling around in my mind. Characters have developed, conflicts and resolutions have came to and on Saturday morning I decided that I’d done enough planning and I would start writing. Within the first hour I had written a pretty good introduction that was a few thousand words and probably worthy of a chapter. I am just going to take my time over the next month or so and just work on good writing style and getting everything right, then I might consider either releasing it online or getting people to proof-read and check it a little.

Well it’s nearly 1 am and the eyelids are heavy. I gotta haul my sorry ass to bed soon, so until next time, keep drinking that piemonade and be good to your mother.

    I know Phalacee said to keep all the parts of your site seperate a couple of days ago, but I think that everything on the site is one aspect of you and people should be able to see all of it rather then go hunting for the individual areas. Plus, if you are getting more hits on the main site and less at the blog and you want the blog to become the general focus of things, it’s probably a better idea to make the blog the more prominent feature of the site.

    If it’s okay with you, I’d like to take a look at your creative writing when I come up next month – I’m doing a custom story for a friend at the moment, but soon will be rewriting something I started a year or so ago and would be interested in seeing how you approach things.

    Last thing, you are probably going to be in luck when it comes to the Lion King in Sydney – they are about to do auditions again for the major roles so I guess it is going to be around for a while so you might get to see it if you head this way again. Just get the expensive seats rather than the cheap ones – it’s worth it.

    Umm, I might give you a look at this latest story, but probably not anything else. Generally speaking, no one sees my work until it’s done, if at all. 😛
