I swear to God I don’t know how to make realistic goals. And I get distracted so easily. The funny thing was, writing used to be my distraction that got me in trouble at school, but now that I’m not in school anymore, I find distractions to distract me from writing and now I’m in a world where it takes me an eternity just to write a friggin post!
Anyways. I pretty much finished writing my book a while ago, but the hard part was editing it and beta reading it and waiting and waiting and finding out that, “Excuse me miss, ‘anyways’ isn’t a word.” I’ve been using the word anyways like it was butter pretty much my entire life. You can’t tell me it’s not a word, mister editor. But I secede I guess. “Anyways” is not a word and I need to learn a little bit of patience.
Also, I’m scared… a little bit. Not really. Actually, I might be making myself sick with anxiety. I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’ve never published a book before. I really want to self-publish, but I know my inexperience will probably get me no where and I’m very intimidated. But who’s perfect their first time? I could also go the traditional route and publish traditionally just so there’s grown ups in the room, but I feel like I’ll be sacrificing some of my creative integrity at some point. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Honestly, I’m actually pretty familiar with WordPress. I used to have a super emo poet blog in highschool (it’s deleted, don’t even try it) so maybe I’ll just use this to publish my book. I dunno.
