I know what you're thinking. "Where have you been?" you wonder, or not. I don't know your wondering habits. As I've said before, I'm consistently inconsistent. I'm not even that consistent on my social media feeds which, I hear, is kind of counterproductive to building my audience. Consistent. That's a funny looking word, consistent. Anyway, so I've got a book signing coming up in August for my upcoming book, "A Warrior's Path."
So, you know, yippee! It's strange how all of this rarely seems real. Some days it does and I get all nervous, and other days it seems like a dream and I wish it were real... except, it is real. And then I get all nervous again.
So what am I up to besides this? Mostly writing. Okay, mostly staring at an empty word document while the little bar that tells where the words are about to go sits there and flashes impatiently at me. "Um... so are you going to write something?" it asks. "Just gonna stare at me all day or are we going to accomplish something?" And then I click over to my endless source of distraction known as YouTube and forget all about what I was supposed to be doing.
Speaking of which, I considered starting a channel. It would be a vlog about what's on my mind. I may talk about my experiences in all this, maybe read a story, maybe show some art projects, was thinking about a puppet soap opera. It's all just thinking at this point. Yes, yes, I've got to start somewhere. First drafts are meant to be total garbage, why would a first ever YouTube video be any different? I'll look into what I have and how I'll accomplish this. And you thought these blogs were a strange stream of consciousness from my weird brain hole. Just wait til you hear the unscripted words fly out of my mouth. When people say that, do you picture actual words flying out of their mouths? Such a strange turn of phrase, just like turn of phrase.
Anyway, that's sort of an update on what's going on with me. Writing, entering contests, trying to figure out this marketing thing, ignoring my social media, and thinking. Fortune favors the brave, as they say. Who is this "they" people are always talking about? I should just dive in and see what comes of it.
Oh, I almost forgot.
