Since I haven’t updated this category in a while, I thought I’d quickly scribble in an update.
It’s been nine months since my first book was published on the Kindle store. And to be brutally honest, it didn’t do well. For a brief moment in the launch week, it cracked the top 500 list in the Sci-fi category, but then it gradually settled down to become totally obscure, for good reason. There were a lot of things that could have gone differently with the book’s writing and marketing.
So taking all those lessons into consideration, I immediately started….nothing. Instead of jumping into writing another book right away (which would have been the ideal scenario) I got a bit lazy. I’ve accumulated a lot of ideas, (i.e., tiny tidbits that have the potential to be expanded into full books) but nothing has actually materialized so far.
In other words, my current update is that things are quiet on the writing front. I do hope to change that soon, but I have no idea when that will happen. That’s because currently I’m occupied with another project, which is taking up all my time.
That said, I do intend to keep writing fiction. Like I said in my last update, the mere thought of starting with chapter one again still feels exciting, and until that feeling lasts, I’ll never give up on writing.
