Something tells me that I’m really getting serious about making it as a writer.
I mutter imprecations at about this time each morning – I’m not getting any writing done. So what am I doing? Marketing. Making connections. Lining up book cover blurbs for my soon-to-be-released e-book, “We Are Strong, But We Are Fragile.” Checking sales on the various sites. Trying to figure out how I can increase my audience in other ways.
Some writers are good at this phase of the biz – better at it than the writing itself. Me? I’d rather lose myself in fiction’s alternate worlds. But real life is lived in this one, and I’m going to have to prove that besides being a good writer, I’m going to have to be an equally good marketer.
