Summer is almost here. If I close my eyes, I can already feel the sand beneath my toes, taste the fruity drinks and imagine myself carelessly enjoying the long, hot days of summer. While I love the relaxed mood of summer, I also like to feel like I used the extra hours of daylight and time off to accomplish something — like writing.
Summer is the perfect time to work on your writing projects and start the self-publishing process. Each week this month, I will offer advice to help you achieve your writing goals this summer. Here is my first tip to get to you started — write AND publish every day! Yes, publish every day. Find a forum, whether it is a personal blog, an online writing group, bulletin board or a social media site, and publish something everyday.
This is a great way to build a platform, hold yourself accountable, and keep yourself motivated. Networking online is a powerful tool for self-publishing authors, so harness the power of the internet and go start writing.
Be sure to check back every week for more advice to help you achieve your summer writing goals.
