Day 9 – Marathon epic post…

Running a marathon…

It’s Day 9 of the Blogging Olympics, and today’s event is the Marathon. The challenge today is to write an epic post…

If you read my blogs, you’ll know that most of my posts are short and sweet, very few epic posts here.

Why do I write short posts? It’s quite simple. I figure that most of the people who read my blogs are as busy as I am and don’t have the time to read really long posts.

The other reason is I aim to spend most of my writing time on my creative writing projects – picture books, short stories, novels, etc – as well as my brand new studies. I have essays to write as well as reading to be done.

For me, a blog post should be around 300-500 words, and not much more, in general. Posts will generally have only one idea or thought in it, and sometimes even half a thought!

Even with my writing, I find short stories easier to write than something longer. This may be because I  get bored writing something longer – so I cut down novels & chapter books into short stories, one for each chapter.

Another reason my blog posts are short is to do with time. As with most busy Mums, I don’t have as much time to write as I would like. Even writing this, I’m tired & want to curl up in bed and get some sleep.

This post isn’t quite an epic post… but it is a blog post, about blog posts!
