Writing is the absolute best. But even writing can wear us out at times.
Being a self-published author gives one the freedom to publish their book how they want, with all the amazing things that authors want their book to represent. However, sometimes dealing with all the different aspects of publishing can stress a person out. Making sure the marketing is getting to the readers you want, the cover is the look you’re going for, and making sure your publicity message is coming across properly are all aspects that need to be maintained constantly on top of your writing. The stress from it all can be tolling on an author’s talent. How do we keep the writing momentum from burning out?
