Looking to the Future and Drawing a Blank

Coming to the end of August and all the posts are ready for September.  That’s all except the Tuesday Teasers, Questions 3, and goal posts.  Anything involving a debut hasn’t been written up either.  So there will be a few surprises.

More so in October since September used up everything on my list of blog post ideas.  I’ve got nothing.  Part of me considered using the month to gradually post the Paranormal Thriller, but not everyone is a fan of that genre.  My stats are bad enough here due to summer, exhaustion, mild depression, and yada yada.  So I’ve got no idea what to do, especially since the August Interviews didn’t get a ton of attention.  Here are the possibilities though:

  1. Gather ideas from the audience like before.  Probably won’t cover the whole month and I’ll be in trouble with November.
  2. Revive the ‘Monster Mash’ game and do an entire month of that or at least make it a Friday thing.  This is where people give me gibberish words and I turn them into monsters or something.  It was fun every time.
  3. Toss ‘Raven’s Hold’ out there for free.
  4. Go silent or only reblog.  Not a good option.
  5. Focus on monsters of Windemere leading up to Halloween.  Drites, Weapon Dragons, Griffins, Undead, Dawn Fangs, Trolls, Ogres, etc.  This one might be interesting.  I could choose the ones that never got much attention on the blog.

Anyway, I’m putting myself out there to see what people think.  Hoping I’m not looking at a dangerous burnout in terms of blogging.  Just covered so many topics that I can’t think of anything else.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Perhaps a game of consequences.. You start us off with 50 words of a story and we all have to comment with 50 words you contine the next time with your original 50 and the 50 you liked the most.. the stories can get very strange but often in a good way.. by the time you have finished you have 1500 word short story at the end of the month.


  2. Monster mash is always fun. I vote for a Friday thing. The monsters of Windemere sounds interesting.


  3. I was going to say the same as John, but you guys took the words out of my mouth! I vote for Monster Month 😀


  4. If you write it, I’ll read it. I like the idea of monster month, and an Ichabod promotion ties in well. Have fun with things. I do some crazy stuff, and not all of it fares well. The bottom line is that I had fun.


  5. I’m like Craig: if you write it, I’ll read it 🙂

    As for stats, mine, too, are pretty bad. I think next year I’ll just close shop for August and head to the beach 🙂


  6. Rather than worry what people want just post things than interest you. If you are getting stressed about it take a break go and do something fun
