1. I've come to the conclusion that social media--or rather, using social media to promote your writing--is about the biggest waste of time ever. Seriously, even playing a video game would be better than Twittering or whatever; at least then you'd be giving your mind a break from your work. When I was growing up, authors didn't have all the tools available nowadays, but that didn't keep me from reading a ton. What kept me reading? Good stories.
2. Google Docs, which I've just started using recently, is awesome.
3. I've quit my secure, high-paying government job for one halfway across the country which pays much less. I did it for many reasons, but it has to be said that one of them is to make sure that I have enough time to devote to growing my business. After making some significant changes this month, July has turned out to be amazing, but that will have to wait for another blog post.
