  1. I like this! . Thanks - I'll take the goodness.
  2. I really like the way you worded this. Very funny. Reminds me of the Fancy Nancy books where she plops a big word in there like splendid only to explain that it's a fancy word for very good.
  3. Stuck between a rock and a hard place. I don't envy the life of a pastor. A little writing here and there is better than nothing at all though... it'll add up in the end. I'm the total opposite... I want to sleep but story ideas and their treatments keep popping into my mind. My brain starts mentally writing it and I have to keep jotting stuff down so that I don't forget. Why couldn't I just get them during the day?
  4. definitely a struggle... have you tried free writing? If you haven't heard of it, It's where you set yourself a time (10, 15 mins, etc.) and you just write for the duration of time. Just concentrating on getting the words out and not whether it makes sense, errors, etc. you're just getting it out on the page. And you can write about anything from the clock on the wall, to the gloomy weather outside, or even a scene you had in mind . It might help with both.
  5. I completed this. Pretty cool. All the best with your writing-related project.
  6. Yes, I'm starting to get the hang of it. Ebraten explained it very well above.
  7. Okay. Great. Thanks again.
  8. Okay. I'll check it out sometime.
  9. Thanks, Ebraten. This is a great help! It's definitely eased my concerns. You mentioned that you use a pen name, is this for your entire social media presence? What happens when people know you and see your photo, do they question that? Just wondering how it works when people know it isn't your real name.
  10. Are you actively driving traffic to your site?
  11. Time, good ol' time, that I do not have to dedicate to it, just yet. Plus, websites cost money... I really don't want to have a site that is basically left under construction because of the above reason. Do you blog too? Sorry if one of those listed is a blog site. I'm not familiar with most of them. It's an impressive list, I must say.
  12. Totally with you on this one! I am too! And on top of this, I'm also private person as well. A great combination for creating an author platform... Yes, but, from what I've read, I've always figured non-fiction writers who wanted to go the traditional route needed to have built that author platform first but with fiction writers it can more or less come after. I wonder what happens when a person wants to write under a pseudonym... Now see, I've also read that an author has a website and a blog... you've provided a link for WordPress so I imagine it'
  13. Yes, I agree with one step at a time with everything in life, but I'm sure you'll agree that the first step is the hardest . Just the thought of it alone is a lot of work for my brain... feels like a big creativity killer. I read that an author platform is mainly for the non-fiction writer, but I'd imagine it's important for both if you're planning on self-publishing. Are you actively driving traffic to your website?
  14. Do any of you already have an author platform? Or are working on one? Am I the only one who finds this aspect of the process daunting?
