In an ocean of writers, it’s hard being a small fish. Over the last few years I’ve enjoyed some success, for which I am very thankful. I’ve had many articles and a short story published, but I want more. Much more.
I’m happy that I have a wide repertoire of things to write about. Want a story about zombies? I’m on it. Or want to know what people should do in an emergency medical situation? No problem. What about steering customers to your local shop? Leave it to me. Once I get an idea in my head, the words seem to flow.
However, there are a lot of people out there who can write well. How do I get noticed? Yes, I have a website; yes, I post to Facebook; yes, I’m on Linked In. I guess I can expand to Twitter and Instagram, but I do have a day job. I wish writing was my full-time job, but it isn’t yet.
So I guess I’ll just keep writing and submitting, and maybe one day the right person will read my book, or one of my articles, and think “this is the person I’ve been looking for.” And instead of a herring swimming in the middle of the ocean, I’ll be a large fish in a small pond.
