As I continue the arduous task of rewriting, the rewritten rewrites, I feel like I am scrutinizing my work, like a bug under the microscope. I am thinking bugs… then suddenly I see a fly land on my computer monitor! My first reaction was to try and scare it off by using the cursor. Has anyone else experienced this silly kind of behaviour?
This reflection reminds me of one of my short stories. You know that the number of times you catch someone watching you will be in direct correlation to the number of times you actually do something stupid. You might want to have a read… Don’t Look… You’re Being Followed
Anyway, the new ‘literary masterpiece’ continues to be manipulated… Ten-minute thrillers remain on hold, for now! How much longer you ask? Well, I am happy to say that the work is progressing a little faster than I expected.
Will keep you posted! Enjoy your week everyone.
How do I get my message out there?
The truth for me, is that the reason that I wrote my books was for people to enjoy my stories.
I had a life experience that heightened my senses and gave me the passion to write. I have had a wonderful time writing and illustrating all my books…
What I don’t have experience in, is beating my own drum to everyone out there and weaving my way through the mire of social media, traditional media and all those markets and trade shows. Slowly, slowly I have tentatively trod my way along these paths.
My favourite part however, has been the book launches. These are terrific days of sharing some food, wine and light-hearted conversation. To date, these have been arranged by local media for me so I haven’t had a chance to share these with my family and friends. Although I have enjoyed meeting new friends immensely, I intend to correct this in the very near future.
Please keep a close look out over the next few months as I will be sending out some special invitations.
I also intend on keeping a running diary of the event planning for those interested in some ideas!
