There is the destination. The castle. Will we make it? That's where we will find safety from all the bad stuff out there. All the warring clans. All the bandits looking to earn a living. All the...well, bad stuff out there.
We move toward the light to see what's out there, taking the narrow stone steps that have been there forever. That hundreds of people over the centuries have walked up.Thousands more that haven't ever lived there.
What has any of this got to do with should we say no to guest posts?
I'm behind again. LOL :)
You see how ridiculously late I am on writing this post? I was writing another guest post blog, and have two more to do today. It's bugging me. I keep saying yes. I can't help myself. I want to get the word out! What word? Lots of words. But I want to say something different! And I'm running out of different things to say.
Not really. That's the problem with being a writer. I have way too much to say. Whether anyone wants to hear me say it or not. :)
When I should be writing on Silence of the Wolf, or Highland Rake, or Dragon Fae.
I did get to 10,500 on Dragon Fae yesterday!
I have to remind myself:
Promo=word gets out about Savage Hunger's release to different people.
Promo=not being able to write on upcoming books--which is what readers are always waiting for, right?
Promo=exploring issues I don't usually explore, so really, having some fun, too.
You know how we have to look deeply into our characters to find what they're made of? Well sometimes that means looking into our own.
I know, I'm getting profound again. But really...what makes us tick? Why do we write about what we do?
I love plants, the forest, the water. I love writing about them. Playing in them. Being one with nature. With writing my stories, I can share this love with readers.
So, even though I feel badly that I have to stop and write tons of guest blog posts that can take away from my writing THE BOOK, I do love writing the posts and sharing something of my quirky world.
Two more to go today, and then it's time to write A BOOK!!! Whichever characters give me the most trouble, I'm writing about them first!
Have a super great Thursday!
And what do you think? Should I say NO???
