Where to go...

So I'm checking through my story (or 'book' as I was just getting used to calling it, until someone pointed out that I should probably use 'manuscript') and I reach a flashback chapter.  As it's entirely flashback in nature, it could - theoretically - go anywhere in the book.

And herein lies the problem.

Chapter 1, Paragraph 1...

So apparently all writers have to have a blog these days.

Correction, all writers have to have a regularly updated blog these days. Apparently readers like to know what their favourite authors are up to. I suppose if there's some kind of semi-personal connection, there's a slightly better chance of the author selling a few more copies of his latest book.

Sounds reasonable.

I'm thinking I'll keep the entries reasonably short.  That way readers won't get bored half way through an update, and it shouldn't take too much time away from 'proper' writing.

I'll also make a good stab at making it 'interesting'.

Wish me luck.
