This year I have been writing a novel and the novel is finished in rough.
It is interesting in the wake of finishing a rough draft one would think that there is down time. However, this is far from the case. The editing starts and there are so many more things to consider and to work on. For example, once editing is finished does a writer self-publish or try traditional publishing. That reminds me, I learned a new term while starting my research on publishing options. Indie Author. I hadn’t heard this term and I am happy to report that I know understand it to mean Independently published author.
There is a lot to think about if choosing to self-publish and a lot to learn if it is your first time through the process. So, I have been spending a bit of time trying to educate myself there. When I think of traditional publishing my first thoughts are all about the query letter.
Other things, that have been on my mind involve social media. What platforms do you use to advertise your writing? How do you increase followers on your social media platforms?
