Many thanks to Lorraine for a wonderful workshop yesterday. She gave us a lot of information in a very logical, thoughtful manner, so we never felt overwhelmed.
Apart from the practical, technical information, I also felt Lorraine gave us two really great insights.
1) You don’t have to do everything at once. Dip your toe in the water with one thing first e.g. Author Facebook page or Blog, get comfortable with that and then move on to the next.
2)For those of us who are still unpublished, this is the perfect time to be setting up, and getting comfortable with, our author platform. Once those professional writing contracts come in and we have deadlines to meet, the last thing we will want to be doing is running around trying to learn the social media end of the business. Personally I hadn’t considered this aspect before, so I think Lorraine pointed out something very important for us to consider when planning our writing careers.
Thanks again, Lorraine. It was a great day!
