Do I Really Want to Be a Writer?

I’m not kidding.

I’ve been asking myself that question a lot these last few months, because I just can’t find the motivation anymore.

I sit down to write, I end by obsessing over how few copies of my book I have actually sold on Amazon, how to get more Twitter followers, why I can’t be bothered to post anything on my Facebook page or just how Goodreads works.

Do you know who follows aspiring writers on Twitter?

Other aspiring writers.

Do they buy your book?

No.

And if they’re not aspiring writers, then they’re running some kind of online business proposing to help aspiring writers for a limited time offer – JUST FOR YOU!!! – of $49.95 (regular price $199.95)

I said I would drop the whole Indie Author thing but I still had the vestiges of it hanging onto my computer.

So I’ve decided to take drastic action.

Twitter account – gone

Facebook page – gone

Actually writing stuff and not obsessing about social media – on it’s way back.

Let’s see if it works this time.
