New content problem

Well, here we all are. The Journal is about as set up as it gets, and I’m going through my bag of ideas to come up with new content.

The problem is, I’m just not coming up with much. Oh, I have a few things “on the hook” as it were, ready to be written up and posted, but they are germs of ideas.

I’m really considering the pros and cons of putting up the “Chapters” I have completed for the various books I’ve been working on. I’ve got three books that I’m trying to complete, and between all three I have about 30 “article” length chapters.

One book, about Tools, may be superfluous now that there are two excellent books out there dealing with the topic of tools that a Wiccan or Pagan needs, how to get them, ideas for making your own, using them, symbolism and more. Basically they cover what I was going to cover, so mine is gilding the lilly.

I know someone is going to comment that those chapters aren’t useless, but I think they may be now. At this point in time, I have no desire to try to break into the full-time writing gig. I don’t think I could make it. I’m going to be 42 in January, and getting published is a LOT of work, and I just don’t think I have it in me.

But I also HATE wasting effort. So if I do decide to not continue with them, I WILL be posting those to the Journal, to share them even if I don’t sell them.

The Book of Tools is by far the one I have the most on. I also have several chapters for Teens, and one on the Holidays. The Holidays I can abandon with a good mind, since so far it’s only two chapters, an Introduction and a “tying it all together” chapter.

I also have about five OTHER articles in various stages of completion. You see? These last two years I have not only been sitting on my duff and being depressed. Okay, so there was some duff-sitting and depressed-feeling, but not only that….

Any of you pro writers who have anything to say are encouraged to sound off on this matter. Thank you all.
