Today is my first day as an Author.
Yea, that’s me letting that sink in. Today my entire income is based off of my ability to not only write stories, but my ability to sell those stories to people. I’m kind of envious of authors of old, who wrote a story and sold it to a publishing house, and sat back as they did all the work.
I’m my own publishing house, which means in addition to writing stories that grab people, I also have to get the word out to people that I’ve written something. Then I have to convince them that it’s worth risking $2.99 of their hard earned money on.
If you need a guest blogger, I’m your man 🙂
Finishing this post this afternoon:
It’s been a good day. I wrote about 2000 words of WZF, wrote a guest blog piece, had a beer at 9:30 in the morning because my new boss is freaking awesome, and got 328910328910328 texts from old work-mates wishing me well.
Not a bad first day.
