Today I am working on trying to get healthy. I’m experiencing spring hay fever with an extra dose of Uugghness. I’m not feeling well, but I have a ton of things I have to do, that I want to do, and that I need to do. As a writer, it is very easy to give away one’s writing time to:
- cooking dinner
- cleaning the house
- going to work
- caring for the family
But…there’s this thing about finishing what you start.
I started a book. I finished it. I put it up on Amazon. Took it down. Revised it. Decided to crowdfund it on Inkshares. then, stopped.
Sure, I did some marketing. Sent out a bunch of tweets and wrote a post, or two. I even watched quite a few podcasts about crowdfunding.
So, finishing what I start is a big topic for me right now. However, I don’t feel motivated to push-push-push. What if why my book isn’t selling is because it’s a piece of crap? How do I know I should keep writing? How do you figure out if you truly should do something else? These are the things I am wrestling with. I could say it’s the ill-health speaking. Or, it could just be the nature of the writer in me rising its lovely head?’
What say you?
