January seemed to flit by far too fast. I spent most of it trying to tie up a few writing loose-ends (one is still loose) and getting things ready for our Ampthill LitFest launch, which happened on January 29th. Our afternoon line-up is going to be brilliant for people who love Crime Fiction. You can check out the announced line up over at our Facebook Page.
Work on the launch and trying to tie up those loose ends meant that writing The Apprentice Queen had to take a back seat for a week or so. I’m aiming to get those weekly hours back up to where they should be. I really don’t like leaving things unfinished and I get a great deal of personal calm from having only one work in progress at any one time. I have two on the go at the moment and there aren’t enough hours in the day to work on both.
One thing for this month is to think about how I present myself as a writer. It’s all very well writing a book, but how am I going to get people interested enough to buy it? There’s lots of information around about building a writer’s platform, so this month, as well as working towards another interim goal, I’m going to read up on how to put that in place.
See you next month.
