As writers, we have more to do than just writing. We have to build our brand, develop a platform, connect with potential readers... the list can feel endless. And that is on top of all the normal everyday life stuff such as working, taking care of the family etc. So, how do you manage to do all those extra tasks that are part and parcel of a writer's journey?
If you are a new writer working on your first manuscript, there are some things that you should be doing now. And I mean, like RIGHT now... Before you finish your novel. Before you contact an editor. Before you get published.
