    For me, it’s finding money to use for marketing. I recently spent quite a bit of money that I didn’t really have three or four different marketing packages because I felt I needed to take a leap of faith. I did get some attention for my work, and some new followers that I think might become readers down the road, but I sold maybe 10 books combined so on a financial level, it was a complete failure. It’s so hard to find any kind of marketing program that will provide positive results, at a price I can afford. It’s the Vicious Cycle that I can’t afford a marketer without money, and I won’t have money until I sell books, and I won’t sell books until I get a marketer. The end result of this is a lot of frustration that has clogged at my creative side for a very long time. I’m forcing myself to get back to writing, but it’s very hard to get back into that particular part of me because the door built of frustration is just too hard to open.

      Hi Rhani, it is, it’s like the chicken and egg situation. And it is all too easy to waste money on people/companies who don’t deliver. I too, have struggled to get back to writing, but am making a concerted effort this year. Very best of luck! 🙂

    The other problem I have is finding time to just sit down and write. But I’m actually only adding this so that I can leave another comment. I forgot to mark the Box to see additional comments when I posted my last one, and I want to know what other people have to say on this. It’s an interesting question.
