What a difference a month makes! I spent a lot of time in June reflecting on what the hell I was doing with my writing career, because I keep adding new distractions to my life.
Why am I avoiding going after the success I know I can have if I write contemporary romance?
Diving In outsells all of my books on all channels. What about that book makes it my most popular?
And why am I trying to write anything but another book like Diving In?
Fear seems to be the reason. Resistance. It is harder to reach readers in the sea of Contemporary Romance.
But, for fuck's sake, it's what I'm best at writing and I need to get over myself.
I've made a schedule and I've followed it for a week.
I've just finished making another schedule that I plan on following for another week.
Most days include two hours of working on Open Door Love Story #4 - which used to be called Wild and Free and is now called Hold Me Closer.
My deadline is to finish the first draft is August 1. I've got 15K left to write.
I can do this!
I also got ALL OF MY BOOKS up in paperback on Amazon. I need to add them to this website. I'm also working on putting a store on this site so you all can buy direct from me.
It'll happen, but writing comes first.
I've carved out one day a week to work on scripts - we got extensive notes back on UNDRESSING and have to change LOTS of things.
And I still need to rework my Kindle Worlds stories.
Meanwhile, I'm going to Scout camp with my daughter this week, my best friend and her family are visiting from Austria for the month, and I've got a one week family vacay at the beach planned.
Thank the Universe for laptops!
Half-assedly speaking of computers, I need a new desk top before I can use Dragon for dictation. My memory is too puny.
Ah, life, it's always something.
Talk at ya next month,
