Yeah, I know…I’ve been seriously MIA. I’m back now though. I think. More or less.
My goal for this year is to set fewer goals. To take care of myself and my mental health. And to find the path back to my writing. My muse isn’t quite dead, but he’s been in a semi-coma for a long time. It’s time to nudge that boy back to life.
Small steps to get things started.
I want to work on increasing my Twitter presence. I’m there most days, but not really active. I want to be more active. I want to engage more with other writers and that means posting more. I started the year off today with a fun poll. Tomorrow I’ll post a meme of…something writing-related. I need to draw myself out of this self-imposed exile and get back into the world.
It’s hard :P
I want to work on posting more to my author FB page. Even if it’s just a fun meme or an update on whatever. I also want to increase the number of people who view and like it and follow it. I’m not sure how to go about that just yet, but it’s on the list.
I want to find new and imaginative ways to market my books with not a lot of money. That will be a tough one. They’re on Amazon, but since I can’t afford to do much to market them, they’re pretty much invisible. I’ll have to find a way to change that.
I’ve committed to reading 60 books in 2020. I’m going to set aside Sundays as my reading day. No video games that day – just a book. I’m paying for Kindle Unlimited, I might as well use it.
I’m not going to commit to writing a lot. I want to, but I’m not ready yet. New words might happen behind the scenes, but I won’t force them. When I get AS back from my editor I’ll work on that – I think it will help to kick-start my Muse and get me back on the right track.
I’ve been off the rails for so long, it will take time to find my way again.
But I can do it. Slow and steady, yeah?
