Do this, do that!
Many writers are concerned about their “platform,” sometimes forgetting to take time to write their books it seems, some of them haven’t even written a book to start with.
Nothing wrong with being prepared but when I hear so many saying they haven’t got time to WRITE, the balance seems all wrong. Ah, balance, always a tricky one.
It seems though that there is so much advice about promoting yourself that writers become obsessed with it, questioning their every moves be it about what they’re writing , how they’re writing…
So it’s confusing out there, you’re not sure who to listen to, what do you do?
Write, of course, that is the whole point, isn’t it?
Write, write again and then worry how you’re going to promote yourself. Make contacts, talk to people, sure and don’t forget to listen to your gut instinct. You’re the one writing this book, either you can or you can’t, but nobody can tell you how to write.
