Ok so it’s my posting day! Yay!
The only problem with having a contemporary romance store is that there are so many moving pieces. Seriously, I was talking to IT Guy about this yesterday. It’s not just writing and going over the stuff that editors say anymore! It’s seriously like all store stuff too. I’m not complaining at all. This is like the most fun I’ve ever had. But with as many people that go through here, there’s like any problem that could happen in the world happening. We’ve had a couple white knuckle moments too.
But we’re starting to get a good rounding out of talent. With Daphne and Natalie, Lana and Paige and Liz, we have enough people to pass the work around so you know, it’s not just me sitting and dealing with everything all day.
One thing that I’ve learned is that hard work really pays off.
I mean it.
Like I almost took a chapter from our billionaires in my books to understand their motivation. I mean I know it sounds silly but I write billionaires that didn’t inherit any money. I don’t know how I feel about people who were born with lots of money. I respect men and women who started from nothing and made it.
But nowadays for so many people it seems like the system is sort of rigged to prevent people from getting ahead, you know?
Like for example you could try and save for something and you’re saving and then all of a sudden BLAMO! Your tire blows out and you need to pay $300 to replace it. Or you get sick and there goes the savings.
As great as things are, for a lot of people, life is very hard. They’re stretching resources everywhere. No matter what your station in life, you’re still managing finite resources. It doesn’t matter if your budget is $100 a month or $1,000,000 you’re still taking scarce resources and moving it to areas and having to make these decisions.
Back in the day when I was just writing it was just writing and then publishing and then going on social media to play.
But Facebook controls what we see and they look for ways to monetize everything. So if I ever wanted to post something from my page I’d have to pay.
But honestly, that’s life and we need to deal with it, right?
But what about having a support network of people we can talk to, and we can share thoughts and dreams and desires and goals and just know that we can come chat whenever.
That’s why Dirty Lil’ Angels was started. And that’s why it’s back. A place for people who share the same interests to come and be among others. Other social media is great but I want to create something that has an angel stamp on it too.
That’s why…one of the next big leaps for this site is something I’m talking about right now in DLA. It’s more than just a ticker on the front page. It’s an idea that will hopefully bring this community closer together.
I’ll have more updates on this later. And yes, I owe you a story about what is going on with Gym Bros. Because they’ve been in and out of my life recently. But this seemed more important somehow, angels. So I just wanted to post it.
Hugs and kisses and lots of love!
