Have a vision and then a plan
Today, I turned the tv off. It was hard too. It is such a distraction, but I have to stay focused on marketing this book so I came up with a list of things I must do everyday. 1. Send out 10 YA review request daily. 2.Edit for at least two hours. 3.Blog daily. (Yayyyy, I can check that one off today's the to-do list) 4. Respond to reviewer e-mails as if my life depended on it. 5.Stay motivated!!!! The last one is the most important one of all; staying motivated. It's so easy to lose perspective. I was talking to a friend the other day about my book and she listened but at the end she laughed and said, "do you know how many wannabe writers there are out there?" I kind of understand where she's coming from, its like when my teenage daughter had aspirations to being on America's Next Top Model. I get it, but then I have to ask the motivating question; "Why not me?" I'm a pretty damn good writer and I have something to say, so "Why not me?"
