. ... as if I am some Christmas junkie hiding my secret in shame.
Football has kicked off
And most importantly… it’s Pumpkin Season.
Maybe it’s something about the scent and celebration of the arrival of pumpkin that brings on the festive move. These are the fastest few months of the year.
I’ve got my ear out for my monster-boys and the things they want for Christmas .. I’m making a list and placed things on alert when the go on sale.
I have my recipes printed out for the meals I want to try and experiment on the family for football games. It’s Florida... This is football country.
I have my address list ready for Christmas cards.
I have this planned. The holiday season is when I feel I’m the most productive.
So here I am with all these lists and order for everything in my life besides the one P I need to work on.
When it comes to promotion, hey! I can re-tweet, share, or post your stuff. But when it comes to my work… I suck at it. I just want to write. If I’m promoting and submitting stuff… I’m not writing. Have you ever seen the Eddie Murphy/Steve Martin movie, BOWFINGER? There’s a scene in there that reminds me about having to promote and get the word out. Here’s my favorite scene.
I am nowhere near the point where I can have someone do work for me. My kids—with all their savvy techno stuff have 0 interest in helping me... but that's cool...I only shuttle to football games, cross country, track, swimming now, soccer, and now soccer-coach. Let's not even talk about the Jordans, the Abercrombie & Fitch.. the other trendy clothes they want. I am not bitter.. I don't hold a grudge. I can’t really travel to promote because of you know.. the 5-kids obligation… and I think I might be the only person in my city who writes romance. BUT ANYWAY.....I won't freak out about this.. I'm sure there's a pill for it..
So I have to rely on planning out a day or one morning to make sure I do my promoting. I can do this…right?
Well.. I have to prepare for Hurricane Irma. I hope everyone stays safe.
Happy Reading! Happy Writing
Have a great month!
