The annoyance of marketing on social media, you’ve all been there once or twice – share your woes in the comments.
1. Groups that have a bazillion stupid rules. You can only post book sales Tues at midnight and blog Sunday before noon. Don’t post any links, only write in the thread. You can’t write in the thread, only in comments. Don’t share your new releases…
Do you have any clue what a writers schedule actually looks like?
Most of the time I don’t even know what day it is, never mind which group allows me to post when –
2. OR when I post a blog link, or a link to a sale, or to a friends page and admin has to jump into the comments and say “tell us about your post instead of just dropping links.”
I’m on this end of my computer saying, “SERIOUSLY!” The links tells you exactly what it is! So now I have to waste more time writing up a write up to a write up – yeah I said it and I’m sticking to it.
3. Writer admins that non-stop comment about writing structure. They continue to insist that you can’t write without plotting and planning first. Many of them are down right insulting about it as well.
Well guess what, unless you are going read my books, still insist I need structure and then offer to edit for FREE, I say shut-up! I have a way and you have a way and Jo-Bob has his way – so there are other ways. It’s called art for a reason.
