As winter continues on, I continue working on my novel. I don’t know that I will have it finished by the end of NWW – Novel Writing Winter, but I will have made progress and that’s what matters, or so I’ve decided.
MaryLynn’s story continues on and yet, is stalled. Well, not really stalled, but somewhere I began to be conscious of writing for an audience (hey, a woman can dream, right? Write!) and moved out of my heart, where her story originates, and into my head where thinking, thinking, thinking spells death to the creative process.
So I’ve spent the last couple of weeks, working on what was already there. Editing, rewriting and moving deeper into MaryLynn’s voice. I’m enjoying the process very much.
Novel writing is definitely not for the faint of heart but rather, for those who are willing to write,write, write and do the hard work involved in creating something of value and significance, truly.
Of course, it could be worse. You might have to sit at your computer and come up with something, beyond fiction, like this recent comment in my spam folder:
Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
Heh heh. Give me MaryLynn’s voice any day!
