The Book v. The Blog

i have noticed that anytime i am posting alot to the blog or have ideas for posting to the blog, there is a corresponding lack of time, creativity and success in working on the completion of my manuscript. Conversely, when i hit stride with making progress on the book, the blog goes unattended.

i am not entirely surprised by this. i have heard other writers say similar things. Notably Steve Lopez, who used to be columnist with the Philadelphia Inquirer spoke of the odd relationship between writing his columns for the paper and simultaneously working on, at that time, his first book 5th and Indiana.

The manuscript is in major re-write at the moment, so there is much to do. And getting time is very difficult, what with the day job, children and other aspects of life all at play.
