Finally, I had a good day and I have been productive. I had to check the story really quick to make sure it was the way I wanted it, finish up the critique segment and did some explaining on the plot. After that, I went on to start writing an essay about superheroes and did big research on the topic, so I don’t use false facts in mine representation. In the next few days, I’ll have to see if I have time to do an illustration, a cover for the story, and after that, I’ll have to pick a date when I am going to announce the story. I still have a few days to finish it up, perhaps do something more with it. This is what I worked on the whole day.
I get to this weird feeling that I am not doing something right. I know I need to be more active on platforms to promote my work and look for a possible Patrons to join my cause, yet I can’t think of a strategy how am I to accomplish that. The sad part, I really don’t have anybody to ask what they did and if I ever got a piece of advice, it was: “Keep doing what you’re doing. Someone will notice”. Well, that doesn’t work. I still have River and Michael there, but I want to give them some company. I mean, they are really supportive and people I respect, that’s why I kinda feel bad to have them bare all the load.
A sore realization I am not qualified enough to become an English editor or do something in that line hurts me. I think, but I am not sure, that I became a bit better with writing in English. However, that is still not to a standard I intend to achieve. Only when I am able to write and edit my own things without leaving obvious mistakes that I will become satisfied with myself. I’ll have to say, reading helps to figure out the techniques and different styles I can implement at the later date. This sort of strategy, at least, gave some results, now visible in my stories.
So, any idea how to and where to ask people to help me in my quest?
