Yes, forget Twitter, Facebook and the Internet
I do love Twitter by the way, it’s great to follow other writers and support each other.
Trouble is, it can be far too distracting. There are so many interesting posts to read, it’s never ending!
When you already have a tendency for procrastination, it’s easy to lose track of time and while away hours on the net.
I do fear however for the sanity of new writers, trying to get published. You could spend days on the internet reading how to query, how to write, how not to write, how to submit… blah blah blah
There is of course some very good advice but I get alarmed to see many getting discouraged and overwhelmed by so much conflicting advice.
Speaking to @LFauthor yesterday, she was thinking of completely rewriting her first novel on the basis of what she had been reading.
Now, I have read a couple of short stories she has written. I did like her style and I’ve encouraged her to follow her heart.
I have no real rules when I write. I just go with the flow. I truly believe that is the only thing that really matters.
So my advice to you, go and write, and write some more. Forget Twitter and the internet for a while. Follow your heart and your guts.
P.S. There will be plenty of time to worry about getting your book out there when You, yes, you! are happy with it.
