Progress Update

This first day of the week is over and I’m moving forward with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Someone placed an order on my Etsy yesterday for my handmade creations and achieving the goal that I have for my online stores got a boost. Thank you to the buyer! When it comes to all small business owners, including authors, every sale counts. I hope I never lose this appreciation, especially if I see my name on a number one list.

The only question that I need to keep myself in check as I go crazy trying to reach my next goal is am I still having fun? I know there’s going to be a little stress as things increase but being able to sell something I created is worth any hiccup or late night processing orders.

The good news for writers is that the book sellers do the transactions and shipping. So do the online platforms. Once you hit the publishing button, all you need to do is remember to market your book and keep writing. I don’t recommend starting more than one type of business at the same time, unless you’re crazy like me.

I share that advice because you’ll make to your goal a lot faster if you don’t have to divide your time. For me, having two loves means that I have a longer timeframe to achieve to what I want but I accepted that when I started this journey.

Getting yourself to work on what you want every day will also be a challenge but that’s why I started this blog. Assign yourself the responsibility and sharing your progress publicly will help keep you in check.

Well, I should get going on my daily lists. Remember, your only prompt this week is to sit down and write for 5-10 minutes a day.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
