THE EXCITING JOURNEY OF Writing
a Fictional Book
"IT'S A LUXURY BEING A WRITER, BECAUSE ALL YOU EVER THINK ABOUT IS LIFE."
No, this post is for those who have written and for those who want to write. For the first, this post is another aspect of the long journey ahead and for the latter, well, read the post and put the information in your satchel. Also for the latter, sit down and start writing!
Writer's have a tendency to be introverts, which means that like a life that is away from the crowd not in it. However, writing is a business, unless of course your writing for Cousin Lou or Aunt Rose, then it doesn't matter.
As a business though it's a completely different story and as a writer one has several hats they must wear.
That is only ten hats, and there are only 168 hours in seven 24-hour days. Minus 6 hours per night for sleeping=42 hours.
Meals, if you can afford a steady stream of them, 5 hours. Commuting to work, if you have a job plus working, part time because we are writers, 36 hours.
Breathing, worrying, schmoozing, worrying, paying bills, worrying, thinking, worrying, happy, sad, worrying, and having dinner a mom's, more worrying. Equals 57 hours.
That would mean as a writer if one were to spend a minimum of 4 hours a day perfecting the craft one would have invested 28 hours in that one week to complete ten various jobs.
Uh-oh TIME MANAGEMENT, without it a writer will be good at no more than four out of ten tasks.
You can write, write, write, write, write, to your heart's content, but if you want to sell, sell, sell, sell, the books you write then you need to create a marketing plan as you would any business.
