Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It's a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
It's that time of month again, where we the members of IWSG get to share our woes & offer encouragement.
Today, I'm mostly woes. Sorry.
Summer has obliterated any and all thoughts of forward progress on my latest WiP, Love's Revenge. Having 3 kids at home with me all day every day will do that, I guess. I already talked my publisher into pushing back the release date from November to January, and I'm STILL nervous I won't make the new deadline!!
Sales are non-existent on my previous publishings.
Garnering attention and reviews is tougher than driving a nail into steel.
To top that off, I'm trying to organize a blog tour for my upcoming October release - Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2), and to say it's SLOW going is an understatement.
Some days, I question this little passion of mine called writing. Today? Yup. Big time.
Some days, I feel like throwing in the towel...
How 'bout you? Ever get down in the dumps over your passion's lack of enthusiasm in giving back for all your hard work? Ever want to toss in the towel & call it a day?
