I’m putting my fiction away for now. It was a hard choice, reluctantly made. But I’ve got other priorities that I want to see fulfilled. Once they are, I hope to be generating enough residual income to give myself room to breathe and time to kick back into storytelling mode. For now, the income kind of work has to be my focus, which means the fiction has to go away away, not just last in a long list away.
Ironically, it was that short story trailer that started me along this path. I want to give myself time to create, publish, and market some short informational products. Instead of inspiring me to write (fiction), it inspired me to sell.
What can you do? I’m a trained marketer, if not a marketer at heart.
