I know we just had a bunch of announcements on TMTF a couple of weeks ago, but I recently made an important decision about the blog.
TMTF has been updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. From this point onward, it will be updated on Tuesdays and Fridays—twice a week.
There are at least three reasons for this decision.
I want to maintain the quality of the posts on TMTF
There are two kinds of writers in the world: Wodehouse writers and Tolkien writers. P.G. Wodehouse wrote books faster than some people read them. J.R.R. Tolkien wrote slowly and niggled over every detail. I’m a Tolkien writer. I’d prefer to take my time writing two good posts each week than to rush writing three passable ones.
I want to pursue other writing projects
This is the year I get my novel published—I hope. The manuscript for its sequel has been untouched for many months, and I’m eager to get back to work on it. There are two or three other novels and some short stories I’d like to write too. Writing fewer posts for TMTF each week will give me a little more time to work on my other writing projects.
My typewriter monkeys are threatening to strike
I hadn’t even heard of the Society for the Protection and Advancement of Typewriter Monkeys, but my monkeys applied for membership. Now they’re threatening to go on strike if I don’t cut their working hours. Apart from terminating their employment, there isn’t much I can do except mutter under my breath and agree to their demands.
According to the new schedule, the next post will be featured on TMTF on Tuesday.
Wait a moment, that’s tomorrow.
Dash it. All right, typewriter monkeys, back to work.
