Thankful For New Beginnings
I lost focus and made a crucial error. Thankfully, due to my hand, I have had a lot of time to study and come to my senses.
You see, I forgot who my audience is.
Like the newb I am, I've been targeting writers. But I'm not writing a romance series for writers. I'm not writing a novella and a literal crap ton of short stories for writers. It's all about the readers, as it should be. And I forgot that while building my online presence.
Thanks to my hand, I am still unable to write (there is only a smidge of sarcasm here). I truly am thankful that I caught this fatal flaw early on and now have more than enough time to spend on my website and social media accounts. I love writers... How could I not? But I love romance readers more.
I'm pretty sure my last post was a transitionary post as well, and it was a bigger transition than I had anticipated. Because of that post, I learned what I needed to write this one.
Consider this my last post directed at writers. From now on this blog will have a new schedule:
1st post of the month will be all about my most recent short story and provide a link to find it.
2nd post will be a free for all about my life and behind the scenes stuff.
3rd post will be a book review of something I've read recently and liked.
4th and occasional 5th post of the month will be another free for all.
Tomorrow marks 4 weeks since I had to have surgery because I carved my hand instead of that damn pumpkin. At 6 weeks we will revaluate my hand and I may be able to use it for small things. It's my hope that soon after that I can start typing with at least a couple of the fingers on my right hand... and start driving again. Until then, I don't foresee me writing any of the short stories I have planned, so that aspect is on hold.
Basically, please be patient with me while I rip apart my webpage and try to get my shit together.
Happy Turkey Day.
Be thankful for... stuff.
