Sure. Maybe 80% of my time is spent reading, the other 20% is spent writing. It’s not a rule per se, but it’s generally how I go about doing things.
Promotion isn’t high on my to do list because I’m not trying to sell anything. Sure, I share my stories on social media, and I am heartened when I learn people are reading and liking what I write as much as the next person, but I’m not going to slave away on Facebook or shout into the cesspool void of Twitter to get a few extra clicks that way.
I’d much rather cultivate relationships and engage with the community on here, following other writers that I really dig, and always searching for the next surprise gemstone buried amongst the chaff and algorithms. Meanwhile, I work on my own stories, trying to make them the best that they can be, and then I send them out into the world to stand on their own.
