A fun fact about me: You can tell how high I am based on my ability to edit my tweets. In the tweet above? Pretty high!
Another fun fact: I have a great day job, and that gets all my attention during the week. And since I don’t believe in working on the weekends, or doing anything on the weekend that even resembles work, that creates a dilemma.
When can I work on my stuff?
The solution was to “atomize” my work day. Break it down to the smallest units possible, and find time within there that I can work on the stuff you want to read.
And once I do find that time? I get my 50 words in. That’s a hell of a thing, and a GREAT trick to get you to create and keep creating. So when in doubt, or if you think you don’t have the time, just remember how Neil Gaiman got his book done.
Something for you to think about…
If I stay on track, that means by September you should be able to buy the audiobook for “Social Media Is BS” on Audible. (Newsletter subscribers will get an electronic copy of the manuscript for free. All others pay cash!)
“Social Media is BS” is the name of the 10th-anniversary edition of “Social Media Is Bullshit”, which came out in September of 2012.
This new edition is shorter, funnier, and as up-to-datier (not a word) as I can make it in terms of the practical marketing advice found within. Considering I almost died between editions of this book, don’t count on there being a 20th-anniversary edition. ;-)
Besides, my book-writing days for the next ten years are over after this one comes out. Here’s why.
