You know when you’ve been submerged into the world of the Wi-Fi when you have nothing accomplished with what books you have started and are just left there in limbo, waiting for you to get off you’re arse (or in this case to sit on it) and start writing to get your projects finished to be published.
And I’m bad at procrastinating. Especially when I’m so bored that I know what I should be doing, but end up either sitting in front of the TV watching something on NetFlix, or I’m just surfing around the internet wasting time.
In the end, nothing really gets accomplished, and you’re beating yourself up for not doing what you’ve been telling yourself what you need to do.
So why do I do it to myself? Sucker for punishment I guess is the first thought that comes to mind. The other is that I feel I’m not that successful as a writer.
Yes, I’ve had friends buy my book. And yes they have given me good reviews on it, and for that I’m deeply grateful. But they say that it’s that one bad review will hit you the most. Even though I’ve had friends tell me that you’re gonna get that one person who’s going to be an a$$hole. That I need to look past that one hater and see it as what you have succeeded at.
To write and tell a story as only I could tell it.
In the end, it’s me putting myself out there. Something I’m not used to doing. Bringing attention to myself when I’m used to making people focus on real talented people. I don’t think I’m there yet.
For one, I really suck at promoting myself. LOL!! I was never the type of person to make people notice me. I’m usually the one who would sit in the corner and be silent.
But if I’m to make it in this hard crazy world of being an author, I need to get my tooch in gear and seek out a publishing company and/or agent who would be willing to take a chance on me. I have so many ideas, but it’s to stay focused and on course that I find lacking.
I have to give thanks to my family though. They put up with my constant “one more minute” when writing my first book. Now I will have to do it again to finish off the 2 books I have started already. And I do need to get them done before I start any others.
I think what I might start doing is to write daily in here. Just to keep me on track with my writing (and to keep me focused), because we all know by now how easily distracted I am. LOL!!
Anyway, in closing (which I surprise myself that I had this much to say in one sitting, lol), I want to say thank you to anyone who’s still following this blog. When I haven’t made a post in a while, I forget how to get back on here. 😀
I think I fixed that problem. For now.
Anyway,, until next time.
