For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been pushing myself to get as much writing done on my next book as possible. The best part is that I don’t feel like it’s rushed. I’ve taken my time to draft the story I want to tell and found myself in one of the best grooves I’ve ever had.
This month hasn’t been too bad in terms of productivity. Unfortunately, most of the things I worked on this month didn’t have writing involved. So, the word count was kind of low. But, it was one of my more productive months in terms of time.
As I am working on finishing my next book, I decided to try out a few free writing apps. I am hoping to find something with a bit more meat for authors than just a word processor. So, this time around, I’m moving my book to the Reedsy writing app. And so far, I am enjoying the platform.
I’ve seen a lot of authors share experiences with query rejections. And it can be rough trying to convince an agent or publisher to take a chance with you. However, I’ve also seen a few writers who get discouraged to the point of “shelving” their books. But, why?
I can’t even blame procrastination this time around. I am simply an extremely busy individual. But everything I’ve done recently will only benefit my career down the line. Still, is it possible to finish writing 40,263 words in just over a week and a half?
Currently, I am in the middle of writing my next book. I started it back when I joined NaNoWriMo, but haven’t had a chance to really dive into it this year. Until today, that is. Can I still publish Kingmaker on Amazon and Barnes & Noble by May 1st?
My ultimate goals for 2022 involve more than just writing a single book. In fact, I plan on self-publishing a few this year. I had so much fun with the last one, and I found it to be quite addicting. So, how do I plan on making this “The Year of the Book?”
Recently, I self-published my first book, A Freelancer’s Tale. And although it was a bit of a time-consuming process, I’m now a bit addicted to it. So, my writing goals for 2022 are going to include more publications.
Continuing with the self-publishing project to end 2021, I decided to get the paperback set up through KDP. And as I suspected, it was a bit of a chore. Yet, it’s finally done and live on Amazon.
Earlier today, I finally submitted my first eBook for publishing on Amazon’s KDP platform. And although I am quite excited, I’m also a bit apprehensive. It’s a big step towards getting where I want to be.
