Welcome to Wanderlust’s Writing Den!

I’m Paul Yoder, a writer and editor. The pseudonym I go by most often is Wanderlust; so, hence the blog’s title. I figure that the easiest way to describe what this blog is about is to answer some questions you might have about it, so let the Q&A begin.
Q. What is this blog about, and what do you hope to accomplish with it?

A. I started this blog for both writers and readers.

I plan on having a running conversation with writers on writing/editing techniques and strategies, to get a better take on different people’s perspective on what good writing is, and to share my own successful writing strategies to help other writers learn how to improve their craft. 

I want show my work to readers and take part in discussions with them on books I’m working on getting published. I think it would be awesome if my favorite authors had the time to do this with their fan base.

That’s what this blog is about, helping writers become better writers by posting my slant on subjects, and providing readers with ongoing stories that I’m currently writing. Essentially, you get to read some of my books before they’re even published.

I hope to bring some hope and enjoyment to both writers and readers every day through my daily posts.

Q. How often do you post?

A. I plan on posting every week day. Why? Because the sites and blogs that I’m into, I usually check out daily. If they go a few days without posting anything new, I tend to leave them in the dust. Cold I know, but my attention span is short when it comes to online content. I’m going to try my best to keep my readership tuned in on a daily basis.

Q. Do you have a schedule of what topics you are going to be posting on?

A. Here’s my planned schedule. This schedule could change, but currently I plan to post…

  • Twice a week on improving your writing skills
  • Twice a week on grammar topics
  • Once a week on editing, publishing, or an update on my own publishing
  • Once a week on an ongoing story that I’ll be writing just for this blog
  • Once a week on either an update on Tomework (my editing company) or a streaming from a YouTube video if I produce any audio or video material

Hopefully that answers any questions you might have for me before jumping into my blog. If it doesn’t, feel free to ask me anything in the comments below.
