It didn’t happen.
I seem to be going through some sort of self reflection right now. I’m not sure why though. Is it because I went and learned too much this weekend about something I feel really passionate about? Or because I heard the words “oversaturated in the market”?
If my type of writing is oversaturated in the market, do I just give up and try to write something else? Do I move forward with the stories I love, and read, and enjoy writing? Do I let someone tell me that basically my stuff, no matter how well it is written, will not get published until the market rebounds?
Or do I write what I want, go the e-publishing route, find my audience, do my own marketing, and just make it happen?
I know I have made the decision to take the next few days off on the novel and keep editing the short story until it is perfect. When it is all done I am going to put it on Amazon and try to get a following that way. When November 1st, comes around I am going to bust out the last part of the novel during NaNoWriMo. So yes, I have a plan…hopefully a good one.
I have come to one final conclusion, self reflection sucks.
