Last year, I found out that I won a contest with a novel I wrote. (Thank you, Storybundle!) It’s the first contest I have ever entered for writing. I have to admit that I was (yet wasn’t) surprised that my novel was included in the bundle.
This was a great experience for me, since I was just running with an idea that was fun for me, but it made me realize that I don’t know anything about self-publishing. I felt like I was in over my head, but at the same time, the idea of people reading a novel I wrote was amazing. There’s a few reviews for it on Goodreads, and I still smile when I read them.
I’m not good at marketing myself, and I barely pay attention to Twitter and Facebook. I feel like my day job is taking too much of my life away from writing and the things I think I need to do to get myself out there.
I’m busy, but I don’t do very much. I haven’t been able to focus lately either. Hence how short this post is and how long it’s been since I last posted here. I’m trying to get better.
