Yes, it is official promoting is way worse than editing that novel. Give me editing any day!
Today is my VERY FIRST public appearance as a writer. In honor of this, I and my self-proclaimed husband-manager hit the ground running last week promoting me and the event I will be at. Mush, Mush. “If you want this you have to do the work!” my husband says.
To most this probably sound fun, but remember I am a WRITER! well, I am one of those eccentric writers okay. I have horrible social anxiety and fibromyalgia along with chronic fatigue so it has really been exhausting! I didn’t even make it out Friday I was so sick! This started to make me feel like it’s not worth it anymore. On top of that my books had not arrived yet either and the event was 4 days away! Amazon said they would arrive by Sunday. They deliver on Sundays you ask? Yes! yes! They deliver on Sundays! I got my books!
I can promote other people with no problem. To promote me, myself, it is the hardest thing ever! The important fact to take away from this though is that I DID DO IT! I set all my anxiety aside because the love, my drive I have for this craft overthrows any nervous anxiety I have. I am here. I am driven. No longer will I hide. Perhaps after this event no longer CAN I hide as I hope there will be more appearances to come!
