We just got the first snow of the season in my part of the world. It was light snow. Nothing stuck.
Sadly, this reminds me of the position my books have been in for the past couple years. Sure, I’ve gotten mostly positive reviews, but I’m simply not putting my books in front of enough people.
I want to share these stories. Yet, I don’t really know how to get people to read them.
Sure, I’m getting better at it. I’ve learned a few things about making book covers and even a little about writing book descriptions. Yet…it never seems to be enough.
Thanks to dictation, I’m faster and mostly better as a writer than I’ve ever been.
I can’t seem to focus on a series. My ADHD is a serious obstacle at this point. The time is coming to control those impulses, because I can’t keep failing to attract readers forever.
Honestly, this post started out as a bit of whining, but I think there is a good takeaway from my emotional shift while writing the last few paragraphs. I feel better. Maybe, just maybe, I feel better because I’m writing.
Writers, take notice.
You may just need to do the work to feel better.
Today has been a struggle to optimize marketing, at least for me.
Time to go back to the pages, the stories, the characters.
Thanks for reading.
