I've always thought of them as a waste of time, especially for writers. If you have the time to blog, you should have the time to be actually writing something of substance. Sometimes needs must. This is what I have always been bad at, self promotion.
So why a Jevron Mc Crory Blog?
My first novella just got published.
Not my first story you understand. Just something hopefully worth publishing, maybe the first worthy addition to my 'official' canon. So I felt a blog was mandatory.
The novella is called 'Swan Song' and I'm rather proud of it.
It depenses with a lot of bull shit in that it's simple, brutal and hopefully effective. More than that, I feel it's desperately needed in an age where the vampire has been reduced to a high school crush that's only slightly more dangerous than the average misunderstood jock.
I like 'Swan Song' because it's unflinching, and it's MY idea of a REAL vampire story.
Over the course of this blog, I will try my best to give something unique of other blogs, not my thoughts on who's winning 'Strictly Come Dancing' or my latest movie review (you can check Amazon for that), but more the planning and my thoughts on how my stories come into being. Hopefully, there may be amusement in comparison of my original notes to the final product. This blog may actually essentially turn out to be a drawing pad for my intentions for future work.
I'd like that.
Take onboard 'Swan Song', I'd like that also.
I know Katrina would.
