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.)
