Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but I’ve been busy writing the first draft of Sweet Sorrow. Can you believe it? I’ve decided to put my writing ahead of marketing, promotion, blogging, etc. The reason for this is simple: If I don’t continue to write, I eventually won’t have anything to promote. Plus, I love writing. I don’t feel productive when I’m not writing. Even if it’s only 500 words a day, I’m trying to write something nearly every single day, even if it sucks and I end up having to delete it later. I feel really, really good about this positive change in my life. And, you know what? For the first time in a long time, I feel like a writer again.
In addition to working on Sweet Sorrow, I’ve also been working on edits for Better than Perfect. I’d hoped to release the book by the end of this month, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to be possible since I haven’t finished editing and I don’t have a cover. If anyone is interested in beta reading, please let me know. I’d love to have your input.
I’ve stumbled upon some terrific blog posts and articles this week that I think you’ll enjoy. I’ve picked out a few that I recommend:
