At Least for Me, Blogging > Writing a Book

I’ve been asked, more than once, if I’ve ever considered writing a book. The answer: writing a book, as compared to maintaining a blog, would drive me crazy. The reason is simple: every book I’ve every read has at least one typo in it — somewhere. If I wrote a book, got it published, and then found writing mistakes in it, I’d be mortified. With a blog, on the other hand, I can edit mistakes away, months, or even years, after making them.

There aren’t many things that embarrass me, but making errors in writing is definitely one of them. If others can see the errors, then having committed the “sin” of writing incorrectly feels like being caught naked in public — eeeeek!

  1. It’s a balancing act between developing the creative content and maintaining good grammar. If you focus too much on the latter, you can lose the story. Errors can be corrected through the editing process which is necessary for quality writing. What’s more important, in my opinion, is constructing a detailed outline beforehand that maps the story and characters out to serve as a referential guide for the work.
