I have a thousand things to do. And today I ACTUALLY got up early to get them done.
I did all the dishes and laundry, answered my email, posted to my "Author Page", and washed half of my kitchen walls--which included garbage can, oven and blinds. Icky things, since I like to entertain whenever possible.
I didn't write anything today...yet. But I thought I deserved to go out.
I always feel guilty when I do. As if EVERYTHING must be about either writing or...sigh...marketing. And the irony of me blogging about my night out isn't lost on me. And I give in at least once a week. Pppplllltttt!
THIS is another reason to go out. Not only does one make new friends, but one learns new ideas.
A friend suggested I friend her Mom's page...been a writer for decades...marketing herself for almost as long as I've been alive. Thank you, Rebecca.
Another suggested Vista, for all my swag ideas for cheap. Thanks Nora!
Yet another acquaintance wondered why I hadn't promoted my OWN work on my OWN author page for my upcoming novel. Duh...Why didn't I think of that? Thanks, Daniel!
Because, according to another person, I'm "Too close too see it." to paraphrase him...Caught up on making my presence known, I'd forgotten that. Good point. Oops. Thanks, Marshall.
So I have a lot of work to do. My bookmarks might be done by someone else.. And I'll be posted quotes and paragraphs for 'Aphrodite's War' on my author page. Checking out new ways to make myself known.
Glad I went out after all. It was a great learning experience. Winky face out.
