I’m going to make this short (as time is limited), but don’t EVER only give yourselves three months between book releases, even if the thing is pretty much written (which it still may not be). I’m cutting it close, guys. Real close. Like, I’m too embarrassed to tell you exactly what’s going on, but let’s just say that you should NEVER give yourselves three months between book releases unless you’re Hermione Granger, and even that’s pushing it.
I haven’t been participating as much in writer groups and doing writer things because phones are pretty much banned at work and the precious little time I do have (not including time with Batman and Appa) I’d rather be writing. Editing. Making sure there’s a product. So, I’m off to go do that because I’m dumb and planned poorly and am just now realizing I’m publishing another book next month.
Anyway, onto the optional IWSG question!
What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?
My writing goals have…loosely stayed the same. I used to want to be this huge, best-selling author that everyone knew, with movies made on each of my books (pretty much Steven King). Of course, that’d still be nice, but somewhere along the way, I realized I want a fanbase. I want to write for people who want to read the kind of stories I like to tell. Mega money would be great (fame—I could live without) but to support myself on selling my books to a loyal and loving fanbase…that seems pretty on point.
Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is a monthly blog hop for writers at all levels to share their fears and insecurities in a safe and encouraging place. Please drop by and say hi to Alex Cavanaugh who started this nifty concept in bringing us all together.
P.S. All my books are free on Smashwords! If you like that sort of thing. ‘Til the end of July 😉
