This post is part of a weekly series on YWP, aptly titled The Writers Weekly Wrap-Up.
Each Sunday, I will endeavour to provide you with a curated list of the best articles I have seen throughout the week that relate to building your platform.
The featured articles cover topics on book marketing and promotion, blogging, social media and self-publishing. (I may even throw in a few inspirational and fun posts, just so that its not all work and no play!)
When Quitting is Not an Option
As difficult as the job is, writers just can’t seem to stop writing.
We must be a wee bit masochistic with our tendency to repeatedly subject ourselves to the often unpleasant experiences that follow the declaration “I am a writer!”
No matter how painful the journey sometimes is, we just can’t help but put pen to paper and scratch out a few more thoughts.
The problem these days, however, is that writing is now only part of the job description, especially if you choose to self-publish.
Marketer, editor, book designer, social media strategist, website owner, blogger, publisher, entrepreneurand the list goes on. Is it realistic to expect that a modern writer must wear so many hats?
Maybe. Maybe not. But if there is no struggle, there is no story, right?
