Writer’s Pitfalls & Quandaries

1 Comment

It has been a long day running my son and grandsons on various errands. I’m beat! When I get home I wake up the computer and roll along to check in with the blogs I follow, find new ones and research writing, contests, memoirs, and publishing. Somewhere in there I edit and rewrite a few projects in my writing files.

I’m in a quandary about the memoir. There are several family members who will be less than thrilled about me writing a memoir that is primarily focused on the relationship between my husband and I, and the last year of his life. Will that be the deciding factor in my publishing this memoir? It may be. I need to consult with someone who knows the ins and outs of this issue.

I’m also researching the facts about posting my stories, poetry, etc on this blog, and how that may affect my ability to sell them, or even enter them in contests. Some may consider posting on a blog as publishing, which would exclude the writing I do here from being marketable. Hmm.

These are only a few of the issues that I am trying to find answers to. There are many more along the way. I am trying to be as professional as I can, while steering clear of amateur mistakes that are detrimental to my writing career.
