My lovely agent, Jill Corcoran, recently suggested to me that I “build more of an online presence.”
An innocuous suggestion, but to my ears, it may as well have been “build an army and overthrow capitalism.”
In other words: a big project.
So here I am today, knee-deep in writing articles, posting on Facebook, emailing back and forth, and Tweeting my heart out, and I just thought I’d take a quick break to ask you writers, artists, or businessfolks out there:
How the hell do you do it?
Moving from the creative and cushy cloud world of illustrating my book, Call Me Perfect, into marketing head space feels like hard edges and scraped shins. Don’t get me wrong, when I get into the flow of a project, I am there, and only there exists. But when I am finished with it, and I take a look at the rest of the list of Things To Do in order to “build more of an online presence” my heart starts beating a little faster.
And on, and on.
I tell you: I’ll be happy when one day soon I have a team to help me with all of this.
But at least for today, I can check “Blog Post” off the list.
Note from the Editor (That’s me):
Do you love the world of marketing? Do you get tickled with your PR prowess? I’d love some help in gaining more of an audience and online presence. Let me know if this is something you, or someone you know, might be interested in. ❤
