It is the end of 2017, OMG, where did the WHOLE bloody year go? Well, one thing is apparent despite my ADHD brain, I did accomplish SOMETHING! I published a book!
I ACTUALLY FUCKING WENT AND PUBLISHED IT!
Why is this SO phenomenal?
Writing a book isn’t just putting words on a page and publishing. It involves SO many stages. How many? SO…
I didn’t JUST publish a book. I WROTE a book, I wrote, like, 12 drafts. I then sent it out to people to gain insight on flow the of the story, things that work, things that don’t, etc. (This is where in reality because of ADHD I would normally have quit, for some weird reason, I DID NOT!)
Instead, I then revised it and rewrote it another 4 or 5 times. I EDITED THE BOOK SO MUCH. Switching stuff around, until I got it polished. Got a few others to read it and slashed it a bit more. Added some stuff. I mean, talk about hyperfocus! 😉
Then, when I had a finished product, I went through hell trying to upload it to one publishing site, before ‘having a go’ on Amazon. i. e. I wasn’t going to use Amazon but when the process was so easy I thought, fuck it and pressed publish! THEN, I had a launch party, which was SO shit, I spent most of it crying 😉
I learned lessons (most of which – let’s be honest- I’ll forget IF I haven’t forgotten already) and I actually LOVE the novel I wrote. I love the characters, the story, EVERYTHING! And here it is, If you wanna buy it
At the present time 14/12/17 I have sold 13 books.
But NEVER-MIND the numbers, I PUBLISHED A BLOODY BOOK! HOW AWESOME AM I? 😉
