The Many Works of Pat Hatt
Does any author actually like marketing? From the posts I’ve seen over the years that is a big fat no. It is fun to interact with blogging and such like that, but all the other stuff can get quite annoying. It can also suck the fun out of the actual writing.
Seems more like a darn 9-5 beat your head against the wall job with the marketing stuff. Plus it seems everyone is getting less sales on Amazon for some reason lately, at least most I talk too. Maybe all the ones downloading for free are spoiled? Or they got so many free ones they don’t care anymore as they have quite the library.
It just popped in as I’m considering a year of no marketing and just writing when I can. What happens, happens and that is that. Oh, there will be the odd blog post, but may just get back to the fun of it and screw everything else for a while. After all I’ve hated marketing with a passion ever since I took a marketing course in university.
Plus I have to find a job or the cats and I will be living in Profanity Granny’s basement in a one horse town. Big no way to that. So that will suck time away from marketing, writing, etc.
So maybe it’s time I got back to just the fun of it and damn the rest.
Do you enjoy marketing? Think a year off from marketing is wise? May not be wise, but hey, when you got no dough to market, you can’t do it anyway.
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
