Death By Blog
Total Articles: 37
So, you started the first draft of your new book. You got a chapter or two in and then you thought, "Hey, I should start a blog."
That way, readers will be able to improve their lives through your words right now, right? They won't have to wait for you to publish your book to receive the benefits. Maybe they wouldn't even receive any encouraging words from you if you were to risk sticking to your book because what if you can't finish it?
It's true you can get your words out right now. You can publish a blog post, send it out to your friends and followers on social media, and get people reading your stuff in a matter of minutes. Blogging is even a great way to build your readership for when your book does get published.
But let me ask you a question.
Have you stopped writing the first draft of your book since you started blogging?
If the answer is "No", that's great! You're doing an awesome job. Keep it up.
But if you answered "Yes", I urge you to reconsider.
Why did you stop writing your book? Is it because writing blog posts is easier? Do the blog posts take up all of your time so you don't have any left for your book? Do they leave you feeling exhausted or unmotivated to spend time writing that book you dreamed about writing?
You have a story to share with the world. If you had dreams of writing a book before you started, which I'm sure you did because otherwise you would not have started writing one, then don't give up on that dream. You owe it to yourself - no, you owe it to your readers to keep going, to keep plugging away at your book.
Write some blog posts, too. If you're struggling to do both, change the frequency of your posts. Instead of publishing a post twice a week, focus on one per week. If you have been writing one per week, try every other week. Or make the blog posts shorter so you're focusing on one very specific topic and spending less time on them.
Make your book writing a priority. If you want to continue blogging, make both activities a priority by spending the same amount of time on them or accomplishing a comparable amount of work for each.
If time is a major issue, work on writing faster and making better use of your time. See where you can cut out lower-priority activities to free up more time to spend on your book.
Whatever you do, focus on getting your story told. There is a whole world of people out there who could benefit from reading (or hearing) your story!
