Whither goes thou?

I’m sure that’s a phrase used in poems, old letters, manuscripts, plays and such. And it seems apt to ask this question about my blog. The goal is to illuminate historical fiction as a genre for readers, writers and others (a few teachers have stopped by).

Here’s where things stand:

  • Reader surveys – check. Might do another one in 2017.
  • Author interviews – check. Over 150 on the blog.
  • An analysis of the elements of historical fiction – partial check. At one point I considered writing a book to explore this topic further, however, I prefer to spend my writing time on fiction.
  • A look at social reading – partial check. This topic satisfied the techie-geek in me.
  • Guest posts – check. I love having guests on the blog.
  • Reader interviews – a few. A nice complement to the reader surveys. Definitely could do more of these.
  • Blogger interviews – a few. Ditto.
  • Book reviews – a few. I do these for fun and only occasionally.
  • Posts about my research and writing process – check. Could explore the research topic in more depth.

What do you think would be (a) interesting, (b) useful, (c) provocative in terms of generating dialogue?
