My major focus these days is to understand how this social media circus operates.
And I realised one thing.
I cant go and say, hey i just joined today buy my book!
Have you guys seen Charles bukowski video on YouTube when he was at a random store and he asked a lady if she knew him then he says “I’m a poet, buy my book” .
That’s so him!
I feel like pulling this stunt some time maybe after 2 3 books. Maybe.
Who know I might do it next time I go for groceries. I can be really wierd at times. I know you are not surprised.
So i am thinking i shouldn’t really depend on social media for sales. I mean I am there. I even made an fb account so I’m at 5 6 places now but this wont work unless I participate there.
That’s going to take time. Later on obviously this is going to help me. But right now I need to stop fretting over it.
Thanks to some of you guys I now have started to understand what’s going on Twitter.
The rest will see.
And I was doing mental health reblogs one month back. As it’s a process of getting permission and blog of choice from the author, it takes days. So I have approvals of 2 reblogs but the comments are lost. I will find them once I’m done with this book thing probably next month.
I haven’t forgotten it. I will be resuming soon. But if any of you want me to feel reblog a post please feel free to ask. I will be happy to share whatever it is.
Can’t think of anything else
Just feeling strange. After tomorrow I wont be able to make changes to my manuscript. And I have already submitted and reviewed everything. As release date is approaching I’m having a wierd sinking feeling. With a hint of fear.
Maybe it’s normal.
Inhave my anxiety in control I guess. I’m eating a lot tho.
But I still dont feel ok. Maybe I’m having kind of an information overload.
With God knows how many tabs opened only about book promotion, I feel really lost at times.
Is it… have I become so severely allergic to social media?
Could it be this?
I am already way out of my comfort zone for this book.
My siblings are all excited and jumping to promote where they can but I stopped them. I just cant deal with this. I don’t want to be questioned for my writing.
I can’t deal with whys and hows and whats
I can’t hear the word psycho.
Here I’m an anonymous person that makes the whole thing tons easier.
Sorry the whole post got derailed I dont even remember what I planned to write initially.
Have a good day guys.
