The Results of My Writing Experiment

p1240240_cJoanna Young’s theme this month at Confident Writing is Experimenting, and she is sponsoring a group writing project: The Results of My Writing Experiment.

My first reaction was that I had nothing to contribute to this project because I wasn’t doing any experimenting in my writing. Then I realized that I have recently started doing two new things here at A Writer’s Words, An Editor’s Eye.

I posted my first book review, ironically a review of a book on how to write reviews, The Slippery Art of Book Reviewing. I learned a lot from reading and reviewing the book and consider it a success. The post generated 49 comments and several people said they intended to buy the book as a result of the review. I have a review of Santa’s Angels (Avalon Romance) by Janet Kaderli scheduled next week and have a couple more books lined up to review.

I have also conducted my first author interviews, though the posts haven’t appeared yet.┬áThe interview of contemporary romance author Janet Kaderli is scheduled for next week, and an interview of one of the characters in A Village Shattered by Jean Henry Mead is scheduled for the following week. Interviewing a character in the book instead of the author was a fun experiment.

Although it’s a little early to report any results from my experimentation with reviews and interviews, I think I’m going to enjoy doing both!

Have you experimented with your writing?
