That escalated quickly.
Or rather, de-escalated.
Actually, it didn’t go anywhere at all.
Last week, my update was all about “I’m gonna do some planning blah blah blah…”
I thought I’d not only do more writing, but I’d also do a lot more promo. I did dive into some writing, feeling that horrible wrenching that comes when I haven’t been writing regularly. I have tried the “write (almost) every day” thing, and although it’s not necessarily bad advice, trying to keep that up 365 days a year leads to burnout.
Promo, however, is so much more difficult. I don’t want to inundate my friends with endless posts, but this week I’ve hardly shared any links or mentioned my stories at all. That has to change.
The one thing I did accomplish is to relaunch my Friday interviews. I gave them up months ago because I wanted to concentrate on getting a novel ready to query, which I did. However, I realized that the value I got for the work that goes into the interviews was definitely worth it. It is not only networking and good karma with other writers, it is an opportunity for my name to be seen by more and more readers. I have a list of local writers here in the Pikes Peak Region I’ll be interviewing over the summer.
I have a vague memory of Tuesday, thinking I should do a status-post for ROW80 for the Wednesday link-up. Then suddenly it was Thursday….
I have no idea how that happened.
I’m not saying it was aliens, but…
It was aliens.
