Even as I celebrate some book sales and consider the next moves in book publicity and wrestle with the taxes and the business end of everything, I know that I can't stop writing too. And of course since I can't live on what I make yet, I also need to keep working at the schools and taking care of my family. Life is busy. I consider that a blessing.
And as we get into the spring I feel the energy of the earth and sun returning, and waking up the winter thickened sap in my old veins. So Maybe. Are any of you gong to try?
I have begun a third Duffy Barkley Book, in fact I wrote 10,000 words in the last summer camp, then added 50,000 in November's NaNoWriMo but I can see that another 50,000 is needed to finish this book so it would be the perfect thing to commit to in April. The ideas that flow in the chat room got me one of my favorites of Duffy's friends when I wrote book 2 and was challenged to add a dragon named Fred who loved baths.
I think writing and being a published author are both full time jobs. But I can't imagine not trying to succeed at both.
See You at Camp?
