As you may have noticed, it’s been a couple weeks since posting here at Self-Published Gold (SPG). I offer three excuses: nice outside weather, water parks, and writing. Does that mean I’m using writing as an excuse not to write (on the blog)? Maybe. Don’t judge ;). Plus I’m starting to get a tan—kind of. Working in the garden and swimming will do that.
Anyway, the point of this (short) post is this: what keeps you from building your online presence? As already revealed, I like to spend lots of time outdoors and lots of time pounding away at the keyboard on my latest novel. The process of getting out and about in the online communities is tricky for me and my associates here at SPG since we’re all people persons—not to diminish online contacts in any way, it’s just different. Different enough that I’m throwing this post out as an invitation for advice from all of you since I need all the help I can get! Please help me with tips and advice on how to better move among online writing circles in the comments section below!
In the meantime, I’ll be working on my newest novel idea and finishing up some character portraits…still need to get the collars and shirts done, as you can see, but they’re coming along alright. Perhaps in addition to my gardening and writing I’ll get some art tutorials in too. I’m a bit rusty from my artsy heydeys of high school.
