Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s Week #4 of the 2018 MFRWauthor blog challenge and the topic this time around is “what I would do if I couldn’t be a writer”. This topic is a pretty easy one because I only started self publishing in 2016, so I have a pretty good idea of what I’d be up to if I wasn’t pounding on the keyboard.
Life. I’d have a life.
That’s not to say that I don’t now or that I currently feel chained to the computer. It just means that I’ve pretty much put my life on hold until I can get my back list up to around ten books. Over and over, I hear that authors really can’t get an idea of how sales will be or won’t have a realistic idea of the actual planning/plotting/writing/marketing processes or feel “comfortable” with them until they’ve self published between six and ten books. I have published three and a fourth will be released in April, so I have to get crackin’.
That means my house is being neglected (I really have to clean out a LOT of closets, right now). Also, hobbies and weekend fun have been pretty much shelved in favor of writing, at least in the short term. For example, it’s hard for me to sit and just read (which I love to do), because I feel guilty being away from my current work in progress (WIP).
If I couldn’t write, I’d read, run, hike, geocache, cook and bake more, and paint (art not my walls, lol). Oh, and I’d get to those closets. And the storage room. And the basement. And probably the garage.
