Training to be a writer

Kristen Lamb wrote an insightful post about what it takes to be a successful writer in this day and age: Writing is not only a marathon

I wholeheartedly agree, but must admit that this post has me terrified. What if I miss out on some of these things? What if I can’t create the social media buzz needed for my book to take off? What if I fail to promote myself at the right networking occasions? The pitfalls suddenly seem much deeper and more numerous.

I’m going to do the only thing I can: go back to writing my synopsis. First sell the book, then worry about promoting it. It’s going to be okay, right?
