Okay, the publication contract for Invisible has been signed and I'm still waiting on an editor to be assigned to me. But in the meantime, what do I do? I've busied myself with social networking, Twitter, Face Book, blogging, trying to create a following (which incidentally is not an easy feat). But what about writing? I don't have the slightest inclination to write. As a matter of fact I'd rather clean my house, give my dog a bath, do the grocery shopping (a chore I revile), flick on the boob tube to watch mindless reality TV - suddenly Cake Boss is the most interesting thing in the world!
Writing after knowing you're on your way to completing your life long dream of having a novel published is HARD. It's as if I've climbed my own personal Mount Everest and reached the summit and now all I want to do is rest. This, however, is not the hallmark of a professional. I'm smart enough to realize that if I ever want to make a living as a writer, I've got to get up off my butt and place said butt in chair and not move until I've been productive.
Anyone want to share words of wisdom? Any helpful hints to get the writing juices flowing?
