I had great hopes for yesterday. The plan was to hit the ground running and get some marketing done. Ummm... I woke up feeling like I'd hit the ground alright. Splat. I did manage to get the bills paid and the dishes done. Other than that, I was toast for the day. Still not 100% this morning.
I tried writing some marketing copy. One shouldn't try to do that running at less than 50%. It felt like I was trying to sell the latest in toilet-scrubbing technology on late night TV, so I shut it down and then went to flop in the recliner. This morning? It isn't TOTALLY awful. I still feel like a huckster. Maybe that's what people want in their marketing these days, though.

:shrug: I suck at marketing. Unless you think that's awesome, and then I just suffer from a lack of confidence.
Selling books is awesome. Not selling books is the opposite of awesome. (Yeah, I'm a wordsmith today, aren't I? Don't pick on me this morning. I'm beginning to think this is Feel Like Crap, Round Two.*) What I mean, if you couldn't parse that from the awesome/not awesome thing, is that when my books sell, I feel like I could take on the world. And when they don't, I feel like I can't do any damn thing.
Anyway, I'm going to crawl back to my recliner. I just wanted to pop in and give you a glimpse into the glamorous life of this writer. Whoopee. And, of course, to prove I'm not dead.
How are things in your life these days?
