Starting tomorrow, I'll be on a much-needed social media hiatus. Won't be back for 2 months, when season 3 of @Dead_Headspace launches. During that time, @BrennanLaFaro will be running the show's social media platforms. 1/3

For the last 3 years, from running Dead Head Reviews with @The_Real_Witt to a kick-ass podcast with Brennan, I've promoted more creators than I can keep track of. I LOVE promoting but it's time to focus on family and get that debut novel written and sold. 2/3

Gabino doesn't mince words. One of the reasons I absolutely love this man. Fuck the haters. They don't matter. Focus on you and what makes you happy.
“Oh no, some people don’t like me/my work!” We’re living—for a short time—on a spinning chunk of stardust floating in infinite darkness that’s somehow simultaneously endless and also expanding. Shut the fuck up about other people and do whatever makes you happy.

This was cool. At one point I talked about the only time I self-published a novella - The Burlap Bears. Mentioned how @userbits was the first writer I ever met here and how he helped with feedback. That was back in 2014. You never forget kindness especially when you're brand new.

My wife shared this quote with me from @CoachPainter (Purdue Basketball), and I dig it: "Don't take criticism from someone you wouldn't take advice from."

From 2013-2019 I wrote my first six or seven novels without ever revising the prior writing sessions work. Which made me hate editing Now, the way Walter does it is the only way I write now. And I LOVE editing!
I wake up, write three hours—a thousand #words. The next day, I reread that thousand words I wrote yesterday. And then I write my next thousand words. And that goes on and on, until I get to the end of the novel. WALTER MOSLEY #amwriting #fiction #writelife
