Well, blogging has not proven to be the best medium for me. I post so rarely. I think I try to make my posts too long and they become intimidating…like writing an article!
So I’m going to try a new strategy. I’ve had a lot of the same conversations over and over with new authors, and each time I think “I need to do a blog post about this!” but then I don’t. So instead of articles or advice columns, I’ve decided to transcribe shortened versions of these conversations I’ve had in person so many times. The format is easier for me to follow because the conversations are so familiar, and hopefully my blog readers might find the answers as useful as my real-life friends and colleagues seem to.
There are some common concerns and experiences for new authors that feel so fresh and so scary and so unique that it can be overwhelming at times. It might be helpful to know that lots of us face the same kinds of questions and awkwardness and challenges, and have come through on the other side.
I’ll start in the next couple of weeks with a few things I’ve been asked frequently in person. But if you have other questions, feel free to post them!
