I Should Be Writing A Book, But ….

But blogging is so much fun Why? Well, first of all, blogs are shorter and much easier to write than a 100,000-word novel. Believe me, that many words is a lot of hard work. Not only do I have to concentrate for long periods of time, but I also have to make sure that all the words are spelt correctly and that my grammar is perfect.
