One of the most difficult things for me to face, as a writer, is that while my fiction is the most popular topic on my blog, that’s probably only true for one of two reasons:
- There’s more of my fiction than anything else on the blog;
- People are accidentally finding it because my book has a title that’s misleading (“Ghost Hunters” — I swear to GOD I didn’t even know there WAS a TV show by that title when I wrote it).
A really interesting thing to note is that, second on my hit parade, is “Writing a Personal Biodata”. Those are the two closest contestants in my post category popularity contest: Bio-Data and Fiction.
Almost as many people come to my blog to find out about writing a bio-data as do to read what I’ve written. While this isn’t strictly a fiction blog, I hoped a topic of interest among the masses would be the things I wrote. And there was probably, at least in the beginning, a tiny bit of hope I would be “discovered” like other bloggers I’ve read about.
“Yeah,” you say, “but she was funny. Whatta you got?”
Nothin’. As usual, I got nothin’. No big, I writes ’cause I likes it and if you reads it for the same reason, we’re all right. Right?
Still, I feel compelled to try and put something together for all those loser-asses coming here to find out about a bio-data.
Here’s a tip for the interim, bio-data-searching loser-asses: I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT IT WAS WHEN I POSTED ABOUT IT. My post, if you read it, was asking for help with it. I got some — and if you read the comments on that post you will too — but I still haven’t written one and may never write one. If you really need help with that — I mean, seriously, if you honestly need someone’s guidance on how to write a biographical data sheet — you’re SOL on this blog, cowpoke. Not a single thing about it here. Why? Because I don’t know anything about it.
Plain as that.
Hope that helps, and if you’re not here to read my fiction, get out.
(Just kidding. Please don’t go — I’m so lonely.)
