Welcome, Chastity Bush
When I first started writing I never once thought about how much I might make or where I would be published and because of that, I think that the first book I ever wrote was my best work. But now, I find myself worrying about being accepted and rejected and what royalties I am going to receive and so on, which leads me to the horrible writers block, which is where no writer wants to end up.
I guess what I am trying to say is this: Write because you love it. Not because you want to make money or find fame. Write because you know that that is what you want to do and who you are.
And don’t take on too many projects. I know that promotion is great but make sure that you have all of your ducks in a row. I am the queen of making this blunder. As a matter of fact, I forgot about this very blog piece and believe me, I felt like the biggest boob for doing so. Take your time and make sure that you have time to do what you need to or you will end up running in circles.
Thanks again, Ginger!
