Greetings. This has been a tough year, writing-wise. As I mentioned in previous posts, Iâ€™m in the middle of updating my horror-thriller trilogy to coincide with next yearâ€™s 10th anniversary. It turned out to be more work than I thought, and I am just now finishing up Book 1. Thatâ€™s not to say Iâ€™m not having fun. Which brings me to my point.
I need a breakâ€”not from writing but from book marketing. In addition to writing books, I handle all my own social media, advertising, and book signings. I used to kick myself, always believing I could be doing more. Recently, I joined TikTok, thinking I would post funny videos about writing. Well, that lasted a couple of months. Iâ€™m aware that other authors are getting a lot of value from the platform. For me, it was a massive time-sink. So, I gave it up.
And then it came to me. If university professors can take a sabbatical to tackle that book theyâ€™ve always wanted to write, why canâ€™t I? Spending time focusing on writing is just what the doctor ordered, I feel. Though I still plan to post content, it might not be as frequent. I ask you to bear with me.
Okay, confession time. Last December, I turned seventy. It wasnâ€™t the big deal I thought it would be, mostly because I was already heads-down planning my year. Iâ€™ve been writing steadily since high school and, other than my family, nothing is more important. If youâ€™ve had the opportunity to read any of my books, you know that I throw everything I have into them. All I want is to create a powerful story for others to enjoy. Sounds corny, I know, but itâ€™s true. I donâ€™t have an agenda.
Well, as the English like to say, thatâ€™s me done. Iâ€™m going to play with my cat now, then get back to my trilogy. Peace and love.
