When you are feeling overwhelmed by everything you want to write about, slow down, and focus on the tiny part you can see through a one-inch picture frame.
Sometimes you just have to pause, re-evaluate, and switch gears. I have decided to change the focus of this writing space. Going forward I plan to share more frequent, shorter posts about my writing process.
At some point in the past I owned a copy of this book in paperback. I donated it during a bookshelf clean out long ago; I don’t even remember what house I last had it in. I have no idea why at the time I thought I didn’t want it anymore. Now it has earned the distinction of being the only book I have ever parted with and then end up repurchasing years later.
What writer hasn’t dreamed of seeing their words printed in a book? For some this fantasy includes a walk down the traditional publishing path, with queries, agents, and editors. However, for others, a more realistic approach will be to take matters into their own hands. This post will share my lessons learned from self-publishing.
