My New Way of Thinking for 2014
This year I am all about the writing. I'll do fewer promotional blogs, fewer workshops and conferences, and spend more computer time writing and less schmoozing. That's my new way of thinking. I have too many stories and not enough time to write them when I'm trying to make people take notice of what I just released or just re-released, or just co-authored.
I'm giving promotion a rest this year. Which will give me a rest. I'm not jumping on every FREE promotion that comes along. I'll stick to the easy, less time consuming ones and write.
Most writers don't like the publicity side of things. I kind of did, the creative side of it, coming up with fun, new ways to get people to notice my books, writing up blogs about my research. After all I had plenty of information to give. But over the years it has taken up more and more writing space. And right now when I want to keep my name and books up in the standings, I need to produce more material.
My writing goal for 2014 is five books. Three will be between 80-90k and two will be 50-60k. Wish me luck!
Is there something that you've decided this is the year to drop?
