…I want my readers’ noses deep in my writing business…

read…yeez learn it early in life about interfering in others people’s affairs… having a meddle where yeez should be meddle-less… ‘keep yer nose out of my business’… is the more polite  version of ‘feck off out of it, it’s got nowt to do with yeez’… as usual, I’m keen to advocate the opposite of conventional behaviour… it’s part of my inbred collection of Glasgow-isms, Mabel… railing against the SOSYAL norms… like when folks say to yeez , ‘yeez can’t do THAT!’‘oh, yeah?… stand back and watch me!’… since becoming a late tapper-into the self-publishing gig, this ol’ Jurassic quickly came to understand that for me to do it seriously, being an author requires treating the entire thing as a ‘business’…. those of yeez who’ve heard me chunder on about this can switch to another webpage now if yeez wish, I won’t be offended… the scribbling bit is the relatively easy piece… getting all of the rest of it together takes more than just a modicum of organisation… editing, proof-reading, artwork for yer great pull-‘em-in covers, formatting for yer eBooks offerings, promotional and marketing activity, SOSYAL NETWURKIN (mandatory), Guest-Speechifying… the business list goes on… oh, sure, yeez might be that lucky person who throws his/her first book on to the Great God Amazon Kindle without any of the foregoing and sell a trillion copies in a week… the odds against that, unhappily, are about a squilion gazillion billion to one… approximately the same odds as finding a trustworthy politician… so, forgive me, please, if I constantly hammer on at yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land… I believe it’s imperative that yeez do sum’thing, however small, every day, to market yer wares… not spammimg… creative ways to get yer wee babies in front of yer readership… I want my readers’ noses deep in my writing business… no chasing them away here… today’s small clarion-ing for my WURK can be found below… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  4. What a lovely invitation. My mother always told me NOT to but you say it’s okay, then o.k.a.y. 😀 😀 😀

  5. I love your comment about the difficulty of finding a trustworthy politician. Forgive me if this is slightly off topic, but your remark reminds me of the story concerning the candidate who, standing up on the hustings to address the local electorate remarks, “these are my principles. If you don’t like them I have others”!

  6. The injunction ‘not to’ is simply too much… now I ‘have to’. Perhaps, no definitely the words I needed to hear. Whilst in a state of semi imobilisation, you provide the impetus to ‘go forth into the unknown’.
    Many thanks m’lud.

    A timely reminder from one who knows, that to ‘get there’ we have to ‘be there’.
