So I wrote this story – A Week Before Christmas – and posted it here in instalments over the past week, starting here and ending yesterday – a week before Christmas – and basically, and obviously, I want as many people as possible to read it.
You may have read it. You may even be one of the few lovely people who let me know that you enjoyed it. If so, thank you. It means a great deal to me to receive any kind of feedback, especially in this case as I really wasn’t sure if the story was bloody awful or not and I was quite nervous about posting it.
Not many people have read it though. I reckon less than a thousand. Ideally, I would like, let’s say, a hundred thousand people to read it, or – I dunno – twelve million. Why not? It’s Christmas.
And of course, that, ultimately, is what it’s all about – having people read your stuff. Obviously. Whenever you write anything for public consumption, you really want as many people as possible to read what you’ve written.
I’m going to post the story as one thing tomorrow, maybe as a pdf or something, I don’t know. I’m tired. But yes, it’ll be all in one place, accessible by one simple link. So what do I do? How do I get a wider audience for this story? All I can think so far is to write this blog post, witter about it on Twitter and maybe bite the bullet of humiliation and start begging Twitter celebrities for retweets. Ugh.
But that’s pretty much all I’ve got at the moment. I’m pretty clueless at the whole self-promotion thing. Always have been.
So, if you have any thoughts, I’d really love to hear them. Especially as it’s kind of time-sensitive. I mean, as far as Christmas stories go, the next five days are pretty much the optimum telling time.
