I’ve been spending more time writing, I’ve been spending less time
blogging. So I’m going to experiment
with more journal like posts. I’m hoping that I’ll get me to just plain
post more. and I also need to schedule blogging into my writing times AND STICK WITH IT.
I’ve been suffering
with bouts of depression due to some changes I’ve made in my life (It’s
no big deal and you don’t have to worry about me). There isn’t much I can
do about this besides, be aware of my negative thought patterns and ride
this out. If it gets any worse, I’ll have to make more changes. But I’m
hoping I can ride out these bouts of self-consciousness and depression
because I know there is a rainbow on the other side. I’m thinking writing positive posts first thing in the morning on Instagram might help.
I want a pretty
author website like Katie Trattner and Gina Drayer. So I was playing around trying to do it myself, but no. I just ended up blowing up my blog. I just need to scrape up some money and pay someone.
My editor got back to me. He said nice things. Really nice things. He made my
depressing week much better. I should have Coal back tomorrow.
I was supposed to
spend two weeks doing a launch/marketing plan while Coal was with the editor. Yeah..between work and just not knowing what I should do, I didn’t do much planning. I did read Book Marketing is Dead: Book Promotion Secrets You MUST Know BEFORE You Publish by Derek Murphy. I thought it was a great read and full of good advice. Again, I need to sit down and develop a plan on how I will implement the suggestions.
