Livermore, CA (PressExposure) September 01, 2009 -- âLindaâs Business Blog,â an award-winning business blog written by California businesswoman, Linda C Smith, has introduced an innovative new blog idea â writing a fiction novel via the vehicle of a blog.
âMy Book My Blog is a work of fiction but it is being written post-by-post as a blog, rather than in the traditional novel formal,â said Smith.
âMost fiction novels are written utilizing the process of writing, re-writing, checking and creating multiple drafts,â Smith explained. âMy Book My Blog proceeds with the idea of the fiction novel as âorganic.â There are no re-writes or drafts; rather, the story will progress post-by-post being as much a surprise to me, the author, as it will be to the readers and indeed, even the characters.â
Smith said, âOne of the fun things about this process is watching the evolution of the characters and the development of the plot. The process of having the story develop as it is written via each post is vastly different than the traditional way of first plotting out a storyline and developing character back-stories. When I wrote the first post, the main character didnât yet have a name. Now, a few posts into the story, we learn that her name is âMegs;â or is it just a nickname?â
Smithâs business blog, âLindaâs Business Blog,â was recently awarded 2nd place on the "Top 30 Business and Entrepreneurship Blogs by Women" by "She Takes On The World," a top-rated, award-winning blog for entrepreneurial women.
