It's that time again. Time for the first Wednesday of the month, Insecure Writer's Support Group post. Alex J Cavanaugh started this group for writers to come together and liberate themselves from their fears and encourage one another.
2011 has been a busy year for me.
I decided I wanted to focus on blogging. I only had around 15 followers and then I found Alex's blog. I took the plunge and joined his A-Z Blogfest in April. I couldn't believe how much fun it was and wow, I was actually getting comments and new followers! I was also finding great new blogs to follow myself. I started posting more and visiting blogs more regularly. I entered as many blogfests as I could and loved every one of them.
Then along came Rachael Harrie's Platform Building Campaign over at Rach Writes. I was totally hooked. Every challenge was tons of fun! And now we even have a book of entries to show for it. Cool! It rejuvenated my creative spirit and roused my desire to work on a novel again. (I had been focusing solely on children's picture books and nonfiction articles.)
With all the great support I received from all of you, I entered Nano for the first time and I have a great start on my new novel.
But now my big worry is, how do I split my time between keeping up with blogging and platform building and finishing my novel? There are so many important activities (reading, blogging, noveling, visitng other blogs, playing with the kids, eating, sleeping, working...) that eat up time I'm not sure how to fit them all in.
I'd love to hear your suggestions on how you delegate your time to accomplish all you do.
And thanks so much to all my followers and supporters! You guys rock!!!!
