My take away from her post is, don't listen to people try to tell you your worth as a writer. You determine that. Sometimes they'll even tell you that the economy is bad that we writers should settle for what we can get.
She has also reinforced my view that that running a writing business is bloody hard work. LOL! Despite the challenges, I still love the job.
As for me, as I sit at my desk right now, I have that comfortable feeling I'm where I'm supposed to be, doing exactly what should be doing. It's a good feeling to have.
|My homeoffice today. I love working in this space|
Did a lot of marketing and client work- because a girl has got to eat even as she embarks on a novel-writing career.
Wrote a second draft of the Unnamed Romantic Story - to be published under my pen name. I'm happier with this version but it still needs work
Co-wrote a non-fiction ebook with my friend Christelle Du Toit - it's our second ebook, and to be honest, Christelle is the one driving the writing of this one.
Sent out a novel mauscript to a number of people for critiquing - many thanks to all the people who invested their time to help me in making that novel shine. Much appreciated. I'm also planning to email you directly.. because I know you are busy and yet you took the time to help me out. I'll make announcements about that novel when we're ready and the time is right.
Helped a friend put in a new theme on her blog and to rearrange some things. It's a work-in-progress, but we're happy with how it it looks so far.
Planted up my winter garden- because we grow most of our vegetables and herbs. I also enjoyed spending time in the kitchen and trying out some recipes.
Organised and put together material for a workshop that's scheduled for 30 May.
It's getting better everyday. Now I just need to communicate more. This blog post is a step in that direction.
