I finally understand how much writing is a full time job. It is very hard to work all day, write, keep up with social media, return emails, organize cover art, and keep track of my books. If you are an author, my hat is off to you. It is a lot of work.
If you want to become an author, my advice is keep working. There a so many good stories left to be told. Keep writing. And if you want advice about self-publishing follow JA Konrath's blog.
