Well what can I say? I must be honest and say I have well and truly neglected my WIP this month due to donating any spare moment I have concentrating on Rachel Harries,
'Fourth Platform Building Campaign!'
Yes, although I have written a little more of the first draft, (but not much) and typed up 2,000 words, I have been telling myself that devoting the time blogging and building my 'Platform' is very important!
Please, please tell me I am doing the right thing! I am sure it is an important step to do this! I know I enjoy it, but do I enjoy it too much? Is it just my attempt to put off what I should be concentrating on?
As I blog away I have touched bases with people (authors), who seem like really nice people and I tell myself that to connect with these people and build friendships is a great way to help me with my end goals! I try to help them by advertising their book launches, giveaways, blog hops, etc., but does this actually help me to sell my books?
I believe so, or at least I hope so!
I do know that this month, being involved in such a large campaign, has improved my writing and has challenged me to write pieces of work, in ways I have never thought to. And this is a good thing, isn't it? Yes, I suppose so, but still I do feel guilty not accomplishing my own work. Oh well, I suppose you can't have everything!
(By the way, during this months blogging, I only learned what a WIP is, I like the terminology, so I am now going to use it too! It is a catchy phrase!)
