Do you read any blogs? How about any author blogs?
Blogs are a nifty, informal way for anyone to get their thoughts out and create conversation with people from all over the world. Writers have, naturally enough, also taken to this new medium. They share not only their thoughts on writing and their works, they also highlight the creative process. That can be a really fun way for non-writers or aspiring writers to experience the joys and challenges of writing.
One of the truly prolific author bloggers is Neil Gaiman. He started blogging well over 10 years ago - just click on the Archives link to access this wealth of thought. Blogs are also increasingly a serious avenue of publication. In a recent blog post, Neil Gaiman provides a link to a free .pdf file with 12 brand new stories by him. Also links and FAQs of Gaiman's work are just a click away. Happy reading!
