The theme for this month's Insecure Writer's Support Group is DECISIONS. Making decisions on writing, balancing time to write with spending time enjoying my new life, what to do - what to do?!?
If you've followed by blog for any length of time, other than just joining me for the April A to Z Challenge, you know that this past two years have been tough for me when it comes to writing. I don't need to go into details, suffice it to say, balance has been an issue.
Even though I promote my books on various outlets, sales have continued to slump with May starting out on a very low note. I normally sell one or two books on the first day of the month and continue with an average of one per day. This month, I sold nothing until the 4th...and that one book is all.
I know many are waiting for book three in my mystery series but I am finding it harder and harder to motivate myself to write it. The story is there, waiting to be told. It's just me.... Since I am retired, writing has always been for the enjoyment, both for me and my readers. This hump has me stumped....
What do you do when you're in a slump? Have you ever considered quitting writing and just sitting back to enjoy life?
