When I write I fully immerse myself within the process and I tend to go a little crazy - who doesn't, right? So, I decided to step back from the creative gantlet for a while... a few months later and I'm back trying to get in the swing of things. I hadn't noticed before how much of my writing life revolved around social networking. I remember after self-publishing my first book I searched on-line for different tips and tricks about marketing and promoting my work. The very first thing across the board was blogging and hence forth I became a blogger. Now my titles include Author, Writer, and Blogger. It's a lot to try to live up to (in my head) with little to no rewards (if you know what I mean). So, here I am, two years and two books later, and I'm still wondering what can I do to help promote my work. Is the answer still blogging?
Here is a question I have, it might seem foolish to some, and to someone else it could be totally relatable (I know auto spellcheck, relatable isn't one of your "real words", I get it) thank God Google gets me. Anywhoie' (Jesus! Anywhoie isn't a real word either? Well, it should be.) Anyway, *sigh of defeat* I've noticed in these months that I've taken a break a current theme among my fellow author friends and that's drinking while writing. So, my question is this: Do you prefer the adage "write drunk, edit sober" to be true and/or beneficial to your writing process? I was thinking I might give it a go *wink*.
