Ron’s Tip of the Day Taking Charge

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Taking Charge.

Let’s say the nation’s business opens tomorrow. For a writer it would be exciting to see bookstores reopen, libraries reopen, and a host of book venues reopen. What would you do?

The reopening of bookstores would ignite my plan to get my wife’s first novel into a local bookstore. During this forced ‘stay home’ I’ve been working with that goal in mind. And once I get hers in, I would try to get my latest novel into the same store.

Another thing I would do would be to start visiting the local library. I may not go as much, especially since my wife is doing rehab and my presence is sometimes required. It would cause some balancing on my part, but I’m up to it.

For the most part I would return to what I was doing prior to the virus invasion. But there will be differences. They call it the new normal, but I call it normal with a twist. The new normal sounds too much like letting fear regulate your life, which I oppose. But using commonsense and making only slight alterations can be very helpful.

Tip of the Day : Let’s resume life as normal with a twist approach.

My wife (Tess) and I are authors and co-founders of T&R Independent Books. Founded in 2014 TR publishes our books and promotes writing. While we write in two different genres (Tess in Teen and mystery, myself in historical fiction) both writings are from a Christian perspective. I am first a Christian and secondly an author. I love writing about Old Testament saints. Whenever I write I always try to place myself within the primary character's shoes. In long novels that means I may focus on different characters at differing times. The result hoped for is that I bring the character to life. Apparently, according to reviewers, I have achieved this. I also write in Speculative fiction (future history, if you will), plus we've now started TR Writing Services to assist new and struggling authors to write and publish using the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform. And we keep our prices low.
