It’s pretty simple, really. I don’t blog as much as I should, especially for an author trying to expand his platform. RPG-a-Day gives me decent writing prompts that usually don’t leave me scratching my head and thinking WTF?
Most blogging prompts delve into topics I’m either not comfortable blogging about (i.e. provide pictures of celebrity crushes — I’m 44 and married, believe it or not, I don’t think about celebrity crushes that much and even when I was single, I didn’t), or I don’t feel are relevant to the topic of my blog (i.e. List three things in your purse). I suppose I could spend a month making fun of a particular set of blogging prompts, but at times, that seems arbitrary and cruel. If I could come up with a month worth of blogging topics to make my own prompt list for fantasy/sci-fi authors, then I wouldn’t need a list of prompts to begin with.
