It has been a year since I pulled out a moleskine journal, wrote the starting date of 4/20/16 and started to write about becoming a “full time” self-published writer. I also set out a goal for myself of seven titles by the end fo the year. And, I made it…barely. Well, between December 31st of 2016 and Earlier this month, I have done very little writing. Several issues have sprung up, a big one being my mother’s health. She is not doing well and I don’t forsee her getting any better.
But, I also have to press on. If not only for me to make a go of this writing life, but to prove that I can make a living with it. I am going to make sure that my mother is comfortable, to support my father, but I also need to write as well.
I still plan on following through on my goal that I set at the beginning of the year. I will push out ten new titles. I will not be counting the re-publishing of Cryo and Void Emissary–which will be coming within the month. But I have my eyes set on finishing the I.S.S. Starkiller Chronicles Season One, trying to get Purgatory Ghoul Season One done, get Risen finished, put out a new series called Maze Walker, and put out at least one more book for the 4Pollack series and Void Emissary. We shall see.
It feels good to have been doing this for a year. I have not made very much money. But I am not doing this for the money only. I am also doing this for the love of writing, to write and share my stories with the world at large. And, hopefully down the road a little bit, I will get a few more pieces of eight in my pocket.
