Thursday Thoughts – Universal. Really.

universeYou know, this is technically pretty darn good advice. All things considered. This is especially true if you’re a writer doing that whole self-published thing. I know this because I’ve spent the last two weeks doing things like formatting, uploading, more formatting, and dreading doing the whole marketing thing. But I’m in this. So I really, really need to mean it. And I do. Even if it seems like I don’t. So…back to work.

Approach everything you care about, Silver, as if you really, really mean it.

And I really, really mean it –
The Universe

Because it’s so much easier for me to give you the “whole enchilada,” when you really, really mean it. And because life is far too precious, Silver, for half-ways, maybes, and decaf.

See? Even the Universe doesn’t like decaf! LOLOLOL And here’s some marketing. GO BUY MY FREAKING BOOKS! 😉
Not decaf

  1. I really really mean it. Unfortunately, the Universe likes to throw a handful of jacks in my path every now and again. Keeps me on my toes, I guess.

  2. Well, the universe obviously doesn’t care for poor souls like me who can’t have caffeine (or their hearts will explode) 😉
    Seriously though – I hear ya. Much as I LOATHE marketing and selling myself, I did some things I was not comfortable with, trying to get some sales… Trying to give it my all. Most writers I know would write, even if no one read their stories, but it sure helps when you hear just one positive word ❤
    I am hoping to cut back on my other hobbies so I can put more time into writing. Too many distractions/responsibilities just causes me to shut down. It's not a productive self-defense mechanism but I don't deal with stress well so I'm not gonna argue with my body, just listen to it and stop overloading myself.
    (In case you haven't guessed – absence from the internet is the biggest clue that I've shut down for a bit and need to re-charge my batteries. Am I an introvert or what?!?)

      We all need that positive word, especially from readers! I’m one of those who would write even if I didn’t sell a book, but I’ve also chosen writing as a career, which means my writing is a business with a bottom line. 😦

      And I’m sorry about the coffee/caffeine. I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was 30 but man, it’s now it’s own food group as far as I’m concerned!
