All the things
There’s so much more to being an author than writing.
It’s a little overwhelming. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
So I have an Instagram now:
So that’s done!
AND I’m posting.
I’ve never been anti-social media… I just don’t have a lot of time for extra stuff, and I’m jealous of the time I have.
Between my family and work, self care for work and family stress (read: mani/pedis, happy hours and brunches), and writing… there’s not a lot of time left.
So I have to be mindful of what I spend that time on – intentional about structuring my days and weekends.
That being said… Instagram is pretty cool.
The author community is nice, and somehow IG has decided I need to see so-called “thirst traps” (mainly of the K-Pop-esque variety, which is odd, but I’m down), anime (hilariously, of the “thirst-trap” variety; but anime is whole other investment of time I can’t afford, although I wish I could!), and cats.
I have noticed, though, that IG is following the 80/20 Rule, and so my feed is about 80% cats.
Which I’m good with.
The rest is nice, but the cat posts and Reels make me laugh, and I can share them with my husband! ?
