Since and before I started this blog, I have gained and learnt so much from browsing the blogosphere and reading wonderful and insightful posts by both aspiring and published writers and publishing insiders.
For a while I've been pondering about what I could possible contribute to this knowledge base. I'm not a published writer, I'm not an editor or agent and I'm really only learning about the ins and outs of the writing business, so what can I contribute!?!?!
To be honest, I don't consider myself an expert in anything -
but I have a psychological background. . .
Mulling over this, I came up with an idea (oh no you say, another one lol)
Do you think reader/writers would be interested in 'Psych Saturdays' - a weekly/fortnightly/monthly (depending on responses) post answering readers psychological questions relating to their writing?
For example, if you had a character with a phobia, perhaps you could ask me about how would this phobia occur? or what type of behaviour would your character display if they had OCD? or if your character was depressed, what therapy would they most likely attend? etc.
I've set up a poll below (and on the sidebar) -I would really appreciate people's answers (and thoughts if you'd like to leave a comment below) about whether you think this is good/bad idea and whether you would use it.
P.S. if you really want, you can also email me email@example.com, if you have suggestions or possibly psychological questions to get this project started!
