So, I am currently in the midst of
A) Writing the Cemetery Tours sequel.
B) Trying to think of new and interesting marketing strategies.
C) Trying to figure out how to distribute my time a little more effectively.
So naturally, I’m here on the blog, doing none of the above. I have had some new marketing ideas though. I most got on here (the blog) to tell you that I have like, three really good ideas, but I can’t tell you about any of them because all of them require the assistance of someone else and lo and behold, I haven’t asked anyone for their help yet, so I can’t officially say that any of them are a go. I’m really excited about the ideas though, and when you get excited about an idea, you just HAVE to tell someone!!!
I’m actually reading a book now about how to sell a million ebooks. I’m halfway through and still haven’t gotten to the part where the author actually tells me how to do this… but hey, the first half spawned a few cool ideas, even if they didn’t come directly from him.
I’m also thinking of making a writing chart that I can upload here for the world to see. Not to brag about how much writing I do, but so I can set deadlines for myself and I can feel shamed and humiliated if I don’t meet them… thus forcing me to put more time aside for my writing and less time aside for things like planning my not-even-remotely-close-to-happening wedding on PInterest. It’s kind of like a sticker chart, only for my career. I’ll think about that.
In other news, Texas is fixin’ to get sucker-punched by Jack Frost (and not the animated one from that Guardians movie). I’m talking freezing wind chills, ice, snow, sleet, the works. I’m not sure if I’m happy about it or not. On the one hand, it’s almost Christmas and I really like it to be cold at Christmas. Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I secretly love, love, love snow and I actually love being able to curl up with my blankets and my kitties and my warm pajamas and light a winter candle and just watch a movie or read or write. On the other hand, I hate being cold and I hate ice on the roads and I hate not being able to go anywhere. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but Texans CAN NOT DRIVE IN SNOW. I tried it once and guess what happened? I drove my car straight into a light pole. Totaled my poor car and sent the light on top of the pole flying across the street. I might actually be sort of proud of that under different circumstances.
But at least no one else was involved.
Anyway, the next few days should be at least a little interesting. Hopefully the good kind. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
