Been doing a lot of thinking about my writing career lately, and I think it's time to update the two short stories that I have up on Amazon. I haven't touched them since 2012, and I'm not that writer anymore. So it's time to update them, starting with the story then moving to the cover, keywords and blurb. I don't want to lose my reviews, even though they weren't all that great, nor do I want to lose my ebook ranks, even though they aren't great right now either.
The other thing I'm focusing on is getting some more work written and put up. That's going to take a bit of time, as the novel I'm working on is barely started and I only have one more short story to put up. Definitely need to kick my fiction writing into a higher gear, that's for sure. Plus I need to balance my fiction writing with client work, because those bills need to be paid. I am hoping to have this novel done and ready for publication by the start of next year, and maybe I'll get some other stuff finished as I go. I have a lot of unfinished projects that need to be finished and moved out.
This year is all about finishing the projects so that I can get them into your hands. I'm not a very fast writer however, but I do write almost every day - surely I can get something finished by year end! I just joined Absolute Write, which I hope will help me achieve my goals - though that forum is rather addicting, let me tell you! But that's because there is so much information available, and it's all really helpful. Plus the people are so nice, as long as you are a normal human being and not a spammer. So far 2017 has been an okay year for me, there have been some ups and downs already this year, but when does that not happen? Looking forward to some more good things this year, that's for sure, while also trying my best to ignore the political climate of my country, or at least not let it bother me.
