Focus on the writing……..
Those who have been following along on my writing journey know that I have been busy with the work of becoming an author.
I have already talked with two literary agents about my novel. This one gave me tons of advice.
My title is decided – The Alligator Purse.
I have artwork.
I have fabulous beta readers.
My synopsis is done – the long and short version.
And I have all of three and a half chapters written. Yes, I agree. That is not enough to call it a “book” yet.
Unfortunately, all of the other stuff has just been putting the pencil before the eraser. Because even after my story is “done”, I will need to edit and edit and edit some more.
But right now I still have tons of basic stuff to do. Like, I dunno, write the rest of the story.
If you aren’t writing your work in progress (known as WIP), you don’t really need a fabulous title, cover art, agents, or even an audience.
I have been struggling with building a platform and making connections and have forgotten why I started all of this in the first place.
So back to the grind. Arse in Seat here I come….
