I am grateful for…learning new things!
The writing aspect for me flows easily for the most part out of my head. I’ve got a lot of things to say but there is more than being a writer. You have to know how to market yourself and share your craft with the world!
Most writers, who want to be published, want more than their mom to buy the book.
When it comes to website building, I can throw a basic site together but when you throwing in changing code, I’m stepping into a whole new space. This is not in my wheelhouse so I need to take the time to research and learn things that can make my head churn.
Today I had two biggest challenges to get through and I knew it was possible to do and while I could have outsourced it, this was actually something I wanted to learn. It was almost like I was already in so deep that I would be damned if I wasn’t the one to find the answer.
The moment I figured out how to figure out the issues, I had a sense of relief. I had put the bulk of my writing on the back burner because my brain was filled with other info. Now, it opened it back up to my creative side!
I truly like the marketing part of being a writer because you still have to use the right side of your brain to keep your left from totally freaking out!
