Not Writing Trail Day 1. Not Writing Trail Week 1. Welcome to Writing Trail X 1! Why X? Because my posts may be days apart or they may be weeks apart. I might post two days in a row or I might not have much to blog about for months. Who knows? Hence the addition of the X factor. (No, not that one. A different one. 😜)
It’s been almost six weeks since my last blog post, not including the short story I posted about four weeks ago. Would you believe me if I said I miss blogging? Yes? No? I don’t miss blogging every day though. It’s given me time to work on other stuff. For example …
I finished Don’t Disappoint Me Volume Two! I actually published it a little while ago and forgot to announce it on here. Ridiculous, right? 😲 I’ve been going on about writing the book for about a year and when I finally finished I didn’t let you all know about it. How silly of me. But yes, it’s out as a paperback and as a Kindle ebook.
I decided to join the Kindle Unlimited programme this time, which means the the ebook is exclusive to Amazon and can be read for free by people who have also subscribed to the programme. Due to the minimal sales from the other ebook distribution channels that I used for Volume One, I decided it wouldn’t hurt to try something a little more exclusive. Now I just need to work on my marketing skills (Spoiler alert: I have none. 😌)
You know what else I’ve done? I’ve only gone and started a YouTube channel called OI Writes. I’m serious. I’ve already posted two videos and a third one will be out tomorrow. I hope it does better than my podcast did 😅. Who knows, maybe I’ll turn it into a podcast as well later on.
In hindsight, I think I have a lot more to work with and I can focus better when a video is involved. It’s a lot more visual, though I’m not in the video. Not entirely. But I can add little effects and have a bit more fun with it, which is important to me. I actually enjoy making the videos more than I thought I would. I should probably tell you what the channel is about, right? Oh wait … I can show you instead 😏:
I have so much planned for the channel. Everything in the trailer and much more, such as notebook tours and videos of some of my stories. It would mean a lot to me and my goals as an author if you subscribed to the channel. Even if you can’t, I appreciate you simply having a look at my videos. And if you think there’s anything wrong with them or if there’s anything I can do better, feel free to leave a comment on the video or on this post. I’ll get your feedback either way and I’m always ready to learn.
Off topic, but do you know anything about creating apps? I have more plans but I don’t know anything about coding. Nor do I have the technical skills to make one by myself from scratch. Any information about that would be great.
That’s it for today’s post. I hope you’ve been keeping well and staying as safe as possible during this ongoing pandemic.
Thank you for following my Writing Trail, Stars ⭐. I’ll post again soon, God-willing 🖖🌕🐯.
