This post has nothing to do with a flower. But it’s pretty to look at, right?
As an aspiring author, I’m a student of marketing, self-promotion, tribe-building and everything in between. I’m seeking the “right” way to launch my career and I’ve been doing so for nearly four solid years.
I don’t really have anything figured out yet.
In truth, I don’t think anyone really does. If they claim to, they’re mis-phrasing it. They’ve found what works for them, not what will necessarily will work for all.
I don’t mean to sound cynical. I’m not. I’m just taking a step back and looking at all that I have done and am doing.
At this point, I think that I need to pull back from my blogging efforts and focus more on my fiction writing. I am participating in National Novel Writing Month in November (NaNoWriMo) and will be writing 50,000 words in 30 days. That takes a significant amount of focus and dedication, and though I’ll provide occasional updates here on my blog, I want to shift my focus. I’ll no longer be posting three times a week.
I’m sorry to you, my loyal blog readers. I hope you understand this is a journey of self-discovery and I will not be far from reach. I’m not sure when I’ll return to regular postings, but you’ll see the occasional book review and NaNoWriMo update.
