It’s that time of the month when we [authors] admit our insecurities. Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for starting this group. He rocks!
I had to narrow mine down, how sad is that! Seriously, what is going on with me?
First thing: I want to write a second Western, I am pretty sure of the storyline and who the characters are. But… I’m forcing the story and it’s not coming. I know that when a writer pens a ‘cookie cutter’ story with cardboard characters, then it’s going to be bland and not a good novel. So I will keep pushing forward although this lack of direction is bugging the crap out of me! And I’m going to take a deep breath, do what I usually do in these instances — I am going for a long drive. Wish me luck!
Second Issue is well marketing. I feel like I’m being annoyingly pushy by asking people to buy my book. I want to share my story, I’m pretty sure people will enjoy it, but I am not fond of the marketing aspect. Any advice?
