Just A Writer Vent

Sometimes I think I just put way too much pressure on myself as a writer. I am currently working hard between two novels; one is on the cusp of being my debut while the other is making a strong fresh start in the writing process. I love working on multiple projects and I don’t feel overwhelmed in that aspect. It’s just that I have been focusing on trying to write up a proper synopsis for both Collected and Vini’s Story, and I feel like it’s taking me longer than it should be!

Why I’m Self-Publishing Part 2

When I had sat down originally to write out the first Why I’m Self-Publishing post, I did not have intention of making it a two part post. However, as I began to write I found myself feeling the importance of sharing pieces of my journey along the way that brought me to where I am now as a writer. In sharing those pieces though, I wrote quite a bit of content before finally getting to the answer of why. I condensed that right into a one paragraph answer, because I was afraid my initial post was just too long already. So I gave the short answer. If you would like the long version, keep reading.
