I wrote 5 drabbles this morning in 2 hours. Not too shabby. Then I saw my publisher was looking for authors to interview. But "website" was required...And this thing is not up yet.
Which, that's ok. I know you need ALL THE THINGS to be an author in this day and age. Despite me thinking the opposite, I am not a social media person. I thought I was. Back when I first started my Twitch channel, I marketed the crap out of that thing. I paid facebook for promos! I visited other streams, interacted in the groups. It was exhausting for very little payout. I eventually made affiliate though.
But now, I feel like I am expected to write for 25 anthologies, work on my novels, update 10 kinds of social media, interact with other writers and publishers, never say anything negative, pretend to live the dream AND have a job and stay healthy. How is one to do that? How...am I doing that?? I am somehow and when I figure out how, I will let you know. A lot of it has to do with not hanging out with family or friends ever.
But will this grind pay off? We shall see...
