I need a clone. With all my responsibilities, I need a clone or a longer day or to somehow stop time so I can get more done.
This morning I spent two hours working on the business end of writing. Mostly I compiled data about sales so I could see how that would help me for marketing. I told Vicki yesterday that I’m getting steady sales with an average of about 45 books a month for the last three months. This is great as I’m just getting started but at the same time I have done very little marketing. The thing for me is to figure out how to market and where to spend my money for marketing.
This led to another analysis of sales – which books are selling the best. By knowing which book is selling the best I can either choose to put more money into marketing that book (because it is popular) or I can choose to let it grow on it’s own (because it is popular).
When I’m done with this blog, I’ll be heading to the recliner to put my foot up because my foot is doing better and I want to keep it that way. While in the recliner, I can write and listen to music or crochet while I watch tv or listen to a book. I’ll probably write for a time because I have a new book going and there are scenes I want to work on. If Ken and I opt to watch something together I’ll try to pull out my crocheting but we usually do that when we’re eating so I might be busy eating.
If only I had a second me, I could work on all of it at once. I have three crochet projects started and several in the works. I have a half dozen writing projects started and actively working on plus all the other ones that aren’t being actively worked on.
It promises to be a full day one way or another and that is with only the writing and crocheting demands. Two of my daughters just bought a house so they are calling with questions. My sister is writing a paper so she will want me to edit it for her. I’ll slide those in because it’s family and they are important.
We’ve been watching West Wing and in their they’re always saying – “What’s next?” That is my life right now. I’m done with this so what’s next.
