Over the past several months, I haven’t felt 100 percent sure about what I want to do with my life. It’s shown up as slumps, procrastination, side projects and general busy-ness. But I couldn’t get to the bottom of it because I was avoiding what I knew was the truth.
The truth is that the stories I like writing are not stories that are mainstream, popular fiction. Which is fine, but it also means that they’re a lot harder to build a career upon.
Sure, there’s a lot more I could do to market and promote them, but I’d much rather spend that time (and energy) on projects I like doing, or with people I like spending time with.
So this is me saying I’ve tried this author-with-a-capital-A thing and realised it’s not for me.
I’m not giving up. In fact, I have a sneaky suspicion that this will mean I’ll write more than ever! We’ll see 🙂
That’s all for now. I’m scheduling a couple more posts this week letting you know what to expect from me for the rest of this year, and where I’m heading next.
