Should be…doing something…

Ever have those days where you’ve got lots of things to do, spend the whole day busy and then look back and wonder what happened to the time at the end of it when you don’t feel you’ve achieved very much? Yes?

Great…because I’ve been having one of those days for about four months now 🙂

I know I’m actually getting on with things (although my blogging frequency on here is pretty low and my ability to do any decent writing seems to be completely absent), but I’m wondering whether I’m spending my time focusing on the wrong things. It’s hard to know what’s the best thing to do with your time some days: should you be promoting your book, working on the next one, pushing your social networking, or perhaps (even) sleeping?

It feels like I’ve spent a lot of time doing social stuff recently and not much actual writing… What do you think – go quiet on the promotional stuff to get on with writing? Does the social stuff make much of a difference overall to the success of your book? It’s tough to decide because you see lots of interesting stuff too through facebook, twitter, etc. Perhaps I’m just easily distracted, like a giddy puppy: “ooh ball!”

Anyone out there with some sage advice or wonderous insight?
