Yep, it’s true. After three book reviews in a row and writing furiously during April and May, I got a little burned out. But I’m still trying to meet my self-imposed deadline, so my weekends and evenings will be filled with writing and editing. -you know its late. ‘evenings will’ was almost ‘evening swill’. Wow. Talk about two different meanings. I hope this post doesn’t come across as swill.
So, today I’m doing just a short post of observations I’ve recently made.
-Others will remember both good deeds and not so good deeds. Choose how you want to be remembered.
-You will have to sacrifice writing time for marketing. If you do it right, the connections you make could be priceless.
-It will hurt, but giving books away could help get reviews, which will help bring in more readers. More readers=more sales.
-Cleaning can sometimes wait. When it can’t, use the mindless activity to let your mind wander. Great ideas can come from mindless tasks.
-Don’t forget to go outside. Sunshine is good for the soul and so is the proverbial breath of fresh air.
-Try something new. Getting stuck in a routine rut is bad for creativity and productivity.
-The Evil Day Job is still a necessity, but it’s the number one job in the pecking order. I need to keep doing a good job even though I’d rather be writing.
-Four-leggeds need attention and will not me sleep in on the weekends, no matter how late I feed them the night before.
-Never forget to say thank to anyone that helps. They may not remember what they helped with or why, but they will remember that you appreciated their effort.
Have a great week.
