This week I'm celebrating:
1) I had a question about the Amazon CreateSpace/Kindle publishing process, so I posted on Facebook -- and a bunch of amazing people explained things I didn't even know enough to ask about. The writing community ROCKS!
2) Egyptian banks aren't accepted by Paypal or any banks in the west, so I can't pay for things or receive payment. (So annoying.) BUT I've found I have more publishing options open to me than ever before -- even without Paypal.
3) I can now make choices about my publishing future that used to be impossible for me. Short stories, "free reads," novellas -- even novels -- are a possibility now. I'm feeling empowered!
Have you ever received advice that helped you more than you imagined it could?
