Periodically I feel like I’m not devoting enough time to submitting my work. I feel like I could do more and should do more in order to add to my credits. If people don’t see your name regularly they forget who you are. The problem is I have been focusing on writing. I have ideas of what I want to submit where but I just haven’t taken the time (I’ve had it but spent it elsewhere).
A dozen items printed isn’t bad. I want more – greedy aren’t I? I want my book out there. I’ve been very focused on that. I’m currently reading the guide for self-publishing on Smashwords. I’m hoping to take my notes from that and get my romance novel out there. Then the next step is to get a poetry book out there. Once I go through the Smashwords process, I will want to get paper copies done too so yet another process.
I feel like the process is never ending. I know that in addition to the actual publishing I’m going to need to do marketing as well – no point in publishing if no one knows your book is out there.
I need to do two things – schedule my time better and clean my desk / office. Then I’ll be organized and will have time set aside for the tasks at hand. I was going to do the office this weekend but woke with a migraine this morning and went back to bed. I got up at 11 instead of 7. Still have a slight headache but I need to get homework done. No office organizing today.
