Even when you make plans, life has a way of unplanning you. It is amazing how God will lead you in the right direction and because of pride or stubborness you still go left. Just to get where you thought you wanted to go. And you destination is not as sweet. So guess what you end up going right anyway…
Now that I have successfully published a book. (I used successfully loosely as in it is available for purchase) I am now learning to truly appreciate the business aspect of writing.
The time and effort it takes for marketing alone can be overwhelming. Not to mention getting reviews and establishing your name as an author. The dedication that is required doesn’t stop once you’re published.
After seeing your work in print, you become your own PR team. And the truth is, if writing is who you are, then this is what you do.
Because in the end you believe in yourself and your unique way of telling your story.
So you keep writing, publishing, marketing, and reviewing.
I have always loved writing. From spoken word to novels. Usually an idea forms in my head and viola, I have a story. Writing can be exciting and with the help of networking and research, I’ve finally completed and published my first novel.
Yes, I self published. It is hardwork, but when you love to tell a story and your passion is your writing, it all pays off in the end.
