This is the question I have been asking myself lately. Should I write or try to keep up with the myriad of social media, email, and other blogs, etc.
I have been torn between trying to keep up with all the emails I receive (hundreds a day), all the social media I am a part of, and visiting several of my author friends’ blogs. I feel a failure that I cannot do it all. It has become too stressful for me to keep up with all of it and still manage to write as many books as I planned this year.
Please forgive me for not keeping up with your blogs, my dear friends. I am concentrating on my goals for 2019 of publishing five books and reading and reviewing 95 books. At this point I have read and reviewed 19 books on Goodreads, published one children’s book and written six new children’s books about dragons to be illustrated later by my husband, and presently working on Book 6 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. I hope to complete at least three more books before the end of 2019. Please wish me luck!
Please check out my first book this year, The First Star, and watch for Book 6 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detective Series coming…as soon as I can complete it. LOL! Books 3 & 4 of Abby & Holly Series will be coming afterward…when I can get to them. They are calling to me and want to be heard. I need to clone myself! Sigh!
I recently wrote a limerick for this new book as I have done for all my children’s books.
THE FIRST STAR
There once were two children, Kim and Chris
Their father being absent they did miss.
They wished upon the first star
That he would came back from afar
Now they are rich and happy, they certainly are.
Thank you for stopping by to read this post. I hope you will understand how important it is for me and other authors to continue to write instead of putting as much effort into social media. Thank you to my fellow author friends for understanding and for your continued support.
