Writing Insight


As I’ve been cleaning up old posts for the first volume of the Meet The Cat Family! series, about the international lineages (big cats, puma, lynxes, and wildcats), I’m amazed at how much work it involves.

I thought those recent posts over the last several months, at least, were pretty good (blush) and could be put in fairly easily.

But the focus on a book has improved my editing skills — now I realize that nothing about writing is easy. I do need to really buckle down on it more.

One main point in my blogging ’til now was to produce a steady stream of posts, since that is what people enjoy as they surf the Web. And I do have posts — mostly reposts and guest videos, though there are some original posts, too — scheduled through the end of February. But after that, I think, it will be time to focus more on quality. This will take some time, because I can’t afford editors just now. I’ll have to write a post, then come back to it and clean it up before publishing it.

But I REALLY like to write, and there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on in the world of earth science, so there will probably be at least one post a week. I’d like to keep the Feline Friday and Sunday Morning Volcano features as close to weekly as possible.

As for the Meet The Cat Family! series, that’s going to take a while, though the first volume will soon be up, perhaps before the end of this coming week.

As always, thanks for your interest and encouragement!
