It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything about my writing journey. To be honest, it’s come to a slow, painful crawl. It’s not that I don’t have material to write about. Finding time, energy and motivation can be difficult. I also have enough rejection slips to build a paper house out of. The voices tell me I’m not cut out to be a writer and I should quit right now. Then again, maybe the traditional route isn’t where my journey needs to go.
I’ve come to a point where I feel like taking a chance, since I have nothing to lose. Something in the works is I’m going to self publish a short story collection. This would motivate me to finish a project and say I’m an author. There’s a few other reasons I’m doing this, one being it is inexpensive for me to achieve. There is a title and a cover all picked out. Hell, the cover is already made. I’ve just been keeping it tucked away while I mull over what to do next.
There’s still a lot to learn about self publishing like formatting, uploading it to Amazon and so forth. I’m looking at this as something fun to do and prove I can do it.
So where do I go from here? I’m going to build my own path. Let me know your thoughts or if you’re in the same boat.
