My Writing Life

I know I have not been as present here as I used to, and my blog rounds have also suffered a lot recently, but after a tough period with too much work plus private worries, I have more time on my hands again.

I am trying to spend some of my extra hours on my writing, however, so I won´t even promise to become a regular visitor any time soon. I do love all your wonderful blogs, but right now I am busy creating a platform for myself. I have found several helpful contacts and forums in the USA, Germany and even Denmark recently. And as the photos will show you, it does make a difference. I am not going to get rich overnight, but “The Cosy Knave” is # 51 among British mysteries on Amazon.con, and “Anna Märklin” is # 22 on one of the Danish bestseller lists.

See you around – but not every day.

    Your titles are keeping good company and moving right on up in the world! Congratulations!

    Real life must always come first and I certainly understand when you can’t post or visit as frequently as you might like.

  2. Well, I’m glad you’re writing. It’s something I’m trying to do more. Write more, social media less.

  3. Belle Wong says:

    Congratulations, Dorte! I am in the middle of my busy season but once that’s done, I’m planning on really sinking my teeth into the writing life too.

  4. If being away from us means we’ll be getting another book sometime soon–go, fly, be free! Can’t wait for more.

  5. Ann says:

    Impressive Dorte. There is always so much to do when you are an author that sometimes the writing part gets left by the wayside. Looks like you are on the right path. Congrats.

  6. seana says:

    Congratulations, Dorte! I think you’ve got your priorities right, but I hope you won’t abandon the blog entirely.

  7. Margot Kinberg says:

    Dorte – I’m so happy for you that you are taking time to write. You’re talented and your work is good. You need to do what you need to do. But…we miss you.

  8. Beth F says:

    Woo hoo! Congrats! And don’t worry,. I of all people understand when personal life takes over the time needed to read blogs. Hope you find your balance soon.

  9. Thanks a lot for all your support!

    And there is no way I am going to give up blogging, I just try to learn to put my writing time first. I have translated nearly 2,000 words today like a good girl, so now I´ll begin to catch up with some of you at least.

    Good for you! Pursue your writing and promotion of it.
    Your posts are fine. Just do what you need to do and we will be here whenever you post.
    Meanwhile, I doggedly try to finish my Global Reading Challenge with one more book needed — and plan for my reading for next year to continue the good tradition, which has led me to so many authors and countries — all good!

  13. Joanne says:

    Fantastic! Glad to see The Cosy Knave up there. All your hard work and promotion is paying off, which is an inspiration to the rest of us. 🙂

  14. That’s fantastic news! Congratulations! Enjoy your focus on writing, which is as it should be, since it’s your first love.

  15. Thanks again for all your kind and supportive comments!

    Kathy: good that some people will finish the Global Reading Challenge – I am nowhere near it 🙂
