I want to provide complete transparency: I hate promoting myself and my work.
The idea alone creates anxiety. Once I take the steps to actually promote myself and work, here comes the panic attack. I feel awkward and self-conscious. Absolutely hate when anyone asks, "What's your book about?" Even worse when I need to do it publically. Why oh why can I not find someone to promote for me? Isn't that why some talented individuals obtained degrees in Marketing and Advertising? While I love current technology--social media has really developed a culture of people to morph into a "jack of all trades." Push the greatness of the individual instead of the team. I've attempted this philosophy but cannot jump onboard.
A team of creative individuals. Where do they reside? East Coast--West Coast? Middle America? Spread too thin among the cacophony of unintelligiblescreeching online. My neighbor or friend? Perhaps.
Lost and Distracted.
I need to create a plan.
