I have signed up for a few authors sites as beta readers. I am learning craft while I am still working on my books. I feel it is something that I will never perfect since no one is ever perfect and that is especially true with creative works. I am going to ship my first book and realize that I could have changed a few scenes to make it even better. Hopefully I can take those and put them into the next book and make that better and so on and so forth.
They say that it gets easier the more books you write. All I can say is that I sincerely hope so because this is a slog at the moment.
I had a great Career Author summit. It was virtual due to Covid-19. But it was probably a better experience since I didn’t have to go back to the hotel between sessions and I could join all of them. My wife watched the kids and I got in 90 percent of the sessions. It was awesome. Learned a bunch and now I just got to put it into practice. I am looking forward to when they lock down the next Career Author Summit.
A group of authors are getting together for an accountability group. I joined in. So far I have been far more productive than I have in most of April so that is good. Just got to keep up the momentum. Hopefully I can get these books out the door this year.
I have been reading Rick Paltrow’s Drop Trooper series:
Rick is usually hanging out on Keystroke Medium’s live streams and is a pretty cool guy. The series is good too. Those links are connected to my affiliate account but the books are good anyway you get them.
