So I've spent an hour and a half working on my author website, although not the "author" part of it. I'm now the master of web e-mail forms (well, I lack confidence, but everything worked on the first try). I've got a short bio up, my CV as a PDF, an e-mail contact form (this is more for prospective employers), and one or two other pages. Getting better at Dreamweaver, too.
The writing part will probably go up last. I'm going to have to visit some actual authors' websites to see what sort of stuff should be there. Right now I'm focusing on the job-finding part. The idea being to control, at least to some degree, what information is out there on the web about me. Because employers now commonly Google job applicants.
Anyway, if anyone feels inclined to leave a comment, tell me what you like to see on author websites.
I've got about 47,000 words typed of my manuscript, which makes 110 pages single-spaced. There! I've successfully made this about fantasy fiction. Though it's a stretch. (I am reminded of this girl I once knew, who was a serious stoner. Everything you would ever talk about in front of her, she'd stretch similarly, and turn it into a conversation about marijuana. Super Mario Brothers on 8-bit Nintendo? One time she played it while stoned. And so on. I didn't like her very much, I'm of the opinion that marijuana makes you stupid and unless you have terminal cancer or something, you have no business using it. Try yoga if you need to mellow out. Seriously.)
Okay, next time I promise to be more on-topic. Though providing updates on the progress of my manuscript is related to the overall subject of this blog.
