Don’t forget to enjoy your own book.

Sometimes authors get so caught up in the presentations, marketing, algorithms, ratings  and every other kind of mad frenzy that comes along after the book is published that we forget to enjoy the book and forget the reason it was written to begin with.

Take the time out to re-read and enjoy your own work, enjoy it and remember why you wrote it.

I know according to the talking heads you aren’t supposed to curl up with your own book and re-read it you are supposed to be getting other people to read it, but I say why not?

What harm can it do?


Don't forget the reason

No, this isn’t being a braggart. It’s called self-appreciation because you worked hard to turn those thousands of words and characters it into a book. It’s didn’t appear overnight.  Some of you all worked years.

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Yes!!! I was actually going to blog about something like this. Going back to reading many of my blog posts over this past year brings me back to the many useful principles in life that I have forgotten.

    I say why not? Don’t get hung up on the “opinion of others”. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and think it’s bigger than anyone else’. I say just pick a quiet place on a quiet day and rekindle the romance with your books. They’re your babies. 🙂

    Why else would people write them if they aren’t going to enjoy them themselves?

    Rereading your own books can be quiet rewarding.
