Nothing Quite Like The Neurosis Of A Writer

I decided to download the free sample of the short story I published on Thursday.

And, of course, being the crazy loon that I am, I hated it.  I read the story and thought, “Well, this is crap.”

Of course, when I read it a week ago in preparation for publishing it, I had thought to myself, “You know, this is really pretty good.”

Welcome to being a writer.

I will say that the sample (which Amazon creates) could not end in a better place.  This is the last line of the sample:  “No.  He had plans.”

On this one I did leave the half-inch indent in, because when I was previewing it that looked good, but reading it on my computer (because I don’t have a Kindle), I think I’m back to not liking the indent again.

Some research may be in order to see how the top-sellers do it.

Of course, I had a very productive week in terms of editing, publication, and promotion, but that all takes away from WRITING.  What I need to do is shut down my Internet connection and spend the whole weekend writing new material.

That is what I need to do.  (Unlikely that it’s what I’ll actually do.)
