To Publish or not to publish?
I'm once again on the road to publishing. I say 'once again', because I've been writing for decades - literally - but other than fan fiction and some poetry, I always back away from publishing at the last moment. Why? I have no idea. My family insists writing is a hobby for me, an outlet, and publishing would make it 'work'. Everyone's a psychoanalyst! However, to be fair, I do have an unusually large collection of composition notebooks, journals, and legal pads filled with poetry and prose (and ramblings) that I refuse to throw out or even box up and store. Hmm...could they be on to something?
Although I do already have a collection of work, I've recently joined the Facebook group Romance in a Month - (thanks, Chicki Brown!) - a free online writing class that helps with the basics. It runs May 15th through June 15th, and if all goes according to plan, I'll have a finished story to share. We'll see. I'm a Kindle-girl and will publish there first, but still navigating through all the books sites - B&N, Kobo, Smashword, etc.
As the Queen of Multitasking, while I'm writing, of course I'll still be reading.
This might be more difficult that I thought.
