It’s been a few months since I finished up my Fallacy Trilogy. I would like to say that I’m wildly successful and don’t have to worry about my future as a writer. I would like to…
Don’t worry this isn’t one of those whiny, ‘or poor me’, no one wants to buy my books posts. I get it. I haven’t poured a bunch of money – like, any – into marketing so I know building a following is going to be slow.
Honestly, I’m not even all that disappointed. I wrote the Fallacy Trilogy mainly to see if I could. There are a bunch of wannabe writers out there and I wasn’t sure if I was one of them.
But the huge question looming is where do I go from here? Do I have another novel in me or am I finished? Is my blog enough of a creative outlet? Do I even want to continue my blog?
I’m sure there’s quite a few of you out there who have asked yourselves these types of questions. I’m not expecting anyone to provide the answers for me. These are quite possibly some of the most personal questions someone can ask so there’s no way anyone can answer them for me.
Nope, these are answers I need to figure out for myself.
And how cool is that? I get to decide my future. I get to pour my heart and soul into my writing.
I guess that answers most of my questions!
So to all of my fellow authors out there – or anyone who wants to make a living from their craft – who are struggling with these same questions, don’t give up! Even if you decide writing – or craft of choice – isn’t your thing that’s okay. That’s the beauty of creativity – it doesn’t have to be limited to one form.
And that’s what took the anxiety out of this question for me. The pressure disappeared and I realized that writing is part of me and probably always will be. But even if it isn’t I’ll be okay because my creativity will always find an outlet.
So where do I go from here? Wherever my imagination leads…
