Monday, January 03, 2022

 Today was my first official working day during 2022. I did some writing last week, but my heart wasn’t really in it. Today felt like the start of the new year.

Not only did I write almost 1800 words on The Case of the Pirate’s Puzzle, I also composed a newsletter and a social media post and scheduled them to go out tomorrow. That was one of the new items on my marketing list, to become more consistent with social media. I’m starting off with Facebook because I’m on that every day, but I’d like to add Goodreads to that, and then, possibly, Instagram or TikTok.

I’m not really fond of the idea of using an entity that is largely controlled by the Chinese, so I’m not sure I’ll take the plunge into TikTok. But so many authors are having success with it, it seems like I should try it.

I’m also not eager to use Instagram. I’ve only recently gained some competence with graphics and I still don’t consider myself at all talented in that area. My mind works in words and sometimes sounds and smells, but pictures? Not so much.

At least I have some time before I’ll have to decide on those last two. I’m trying to be sensible about doing new things in the new year. I’m going to add sites slowly rather than plunging in all at once. If I manage with my first objectives, I’ll evaluate what else I’ll try in April.

Meanwhile, I’m going to try to keep up this writing diary at least three times a week.
