Busy! Busy! Busy!
There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything that a writer needs to do! That’s a true enough statement, but don’t get the wrong idea. I do not spend all of my day sitting in front of a computer, writing and doing other writerly-type things. I could but I choose not to. These days I usually work 2-3 hours–period! So that time needs to be used wisely.
So here’s a partial list of things I need to do on a regular basis:
Write NEW stories
Edit and polish stories that I want to submit
Edit and polish stories that I will indie-pub
Create covers for indie-pubbed stories
Create marketing plan for latest release or an upcoming release
Answer or send emails to other writers for a variety of reasons
Create posts to share on my blogs (Tiaras & Tennis Shoes and Devotions from Puzzle House)
Create posts to share on other people’s blogs
Write devotions for Devotions from Puzzle House as well as for other sites
Read books! Writers need to read books not just write them.
Social media to connect with other writers and readers
So there you have it! And I’m sure if I wanted to sit here and think, I’d come up with several more tasks to add to the list. As you can imagine, my favorite task is writing new stories and editing and polishing stories to be submitted or indie-pubbed. But the other tasks can’t be ignored either. So you see, I really could spend hours and hours at the computer but I don’t. First because my health won’t allow it, but even more important is the fact that spending time with family and friends is just as important!
God Bless & Good Reading!
