Author Walk Continues!
I love to write, but life does not always make it easy for me to do so. There is definitely a creative obsessive muse for me. When the scene flows in my mind, I want to write it. I want to tell the story of the characters. All too often I have a life that I must attend to first and before I know it, the scene has fled. I must wait for it to return to me again. Sigh... That is my truth with the writing. So in between the times when the scene flows and I write furiously with my fingers flying hard and fast over the laptop keyboard, I edit. I reread. I learn about publishing and marketing. I learn about audio books and video books. I learn about the tantalizing idea behind animating my stories. I wish them to have a life of their own outside of my head. Maybe some day I will figure it out. What I know for sure is that if it is to get accomplished, it must be by my own hand. I don't have money. I will never be wealthy and don't want to be. Even if I had the money, I would not wish for another to do this for me. I wish to know. I need to understand it. I don't know how it is for other writers. But for me, I desire to own everything about my stories in the way that Rockefeller wanted to control everything about the oil industry. When you read my stories, I want you to feel as if you had a Kee experience and walk away knowing that it was unique. So please enjoy my stories, write me a few reviews here and there, but above all else ask me questions and make comments. I get better because of you!
I have backed away from a lot of my social media. I know it is not good for exposure of my work, but it was necessary. I simply do not have the time to keep up with it all. I still have a Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter presence, but I'm not very active on those platforms. Youtube has always been a repository for videos related to Draoithe, and I would love to grow support on that platform. It isn't very easy, and I lack the time to put into it. I'm seriously disappointed in my inability to craft the video books I wanted to try out. Oh well. I will keep working on it.
I am still very active on Facebook and on Instagram. If you want to see what is going on in the dream on a daily basis, find me on social media. Just know that I do have to handle my day job, so my response time is trash. I will get to it, but it won't be immediate. Hope it gets better.
Duty calls. My house needs straightening. As always if you read, please be kind and leave your review. I will catch up with you next week and please enjoy all my stories for FREE with Kindle Unlimited!
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
