The Insecure Writers Support Group
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by one of the nicest bloggers in the world, Alex J. Cavanaugh. He just might be the most popular, too.
Monday’s post was all about my Christmas gift, the Dragon Naturally Speaking software. I am still loving it! It has made such a difference in my desire to write. Because that desire has been absent for a very long time.
The Circle of Friends, and I eventually wrote a non-fiction book, too.
Once I’d finished book V of my series, I lost some steam. My sixth book, I was very happy with the story and felt it was my best effort to date. After its release almost two years ago though, my drive to continue writing fiction fizzled and died. It was so much work to write and promote and it just didn’t sell as well as non-fiction. Of course, my desire to write non-fiction wasn’t faring much better.
That Dragon program has really made a difference. I have a non-fiction book I am editing, and since it is about publishing & promoting, I need to hurry and complete it before everything in the industry changes again. But with the new software, I am so excited!
And I might be brave enough to tackle another fiction book, too. The past few months have seen a large increase in the sales of my series in eBook form. That’s always a good ego boost!
Either way, I am happy about writing again. Although there are still other aspects about this industry I enjoy, too. But that is for another post.
