I often talk about the fact that many writers inherently display introverted characteristics. I am not sure why that is and it’s definitely not a one size fit all type of statement. However, the fact that many of us as writers have an issue promoting our work, definitely solidifies the thought in my mind. The reality is that writing this great thing is only the beginning of the process. You’ve labored, you maybe researched, you found the perfect rhythm and you hit publish or you printed the book, but NO ONE is going to know or care if you don’t learn how to promote it.
One thing that many writers struggle with is how much they should share. “I want to share this story, but I am not sure if I am telling too much of my life.” We have all had that dilemma, believe me. But over the years I have learned that transparency is necessary in order to connect authentically with your audience. But I have also learned that you can be transparent without oversharing.
