Yep, it’s going to be one of THOSE conversations…
As many of you know, I have been experimenting with Amazon Marketing Services to get some sort of marketing thing going with my books. Unfortunately, I tend to have a leap before I look approach at times which while making for great anecdotes, leads to me slamming on the brakes when Reality sets in.
Me: Hot Damn, I want to do this.
Reality: You need to save up the funds to do this and develop a better plan of attack. You’re not quite the bestselling author yet, you know.
Reality: Patience, Wallace. You can only do so much. You’re a writer, not a salesman.
Okay, that’s generally what goes on in my head and while my head and my gut don’t often work in tandem (except for that one party a number of years ago that involved copious amounts of alcohol but that’s a story for another day) but when they do, it’s a rather jarring experience that leaves me at a brief standstill while I figure out what the heck happened.
I suppose the message here is to fight those impulses and move slowly unless you are fully confident that you are moving in the appropriate direction. Trust your first instincts.
