Being Yourself

In case you didn’t realize, I’m quirky.  I think differently than most people.  I act differently than most people.  I write differently than most people.  Sure, part of it is that I am a committed artist.  Part of it, however, is just that I’m quirky.

Looking at my life, you might not notice.  Not right away.  I live a fairly normal existence.  I raise my kids, work to support my family, buy groceries, yada yada.

But my head is a strange place.  Some people like that sort of thing.  Especially when they’re trying to learn something that might otherwise be boring and tedious.

I’m working on Marketing for Authors and I’ve already decided that I’m just going to let my quirky flag fly.  Because that’s who I am.  That’s part of how I took a rather circuitous route to gather the knowledge and skills that I have.

It works for my clients, so it should work for me, too.  Even with a little less restraint.

What do you think?  How can being yourself work for you?  After all, it comes naturally!

    Quirky is good! You inject a wry humour into everything you write, even the serious stuff, and that resonates with readers. It makes people like me want to read and keep reading. Go for it!
