Platform, pictures, bios, blogging… jeez louise, writers are responsible for a lot.
Most of the time, we should be writing for sure. But there are some other things writers should be thinking about.
A mug shot is one of them. I should say – a mug shot we are happy with.
For a long time, this was the picture I was using for just about everything.
And it was fine. But it looked like I took a picture that I was happy enough with and cropped it way too small and said, “done.” Because – that is exactly what I did.
So, I asked her to take a few “professionalish” pictures for me.
And this is what I got…
Uhmmm. Yes, that is a lot better.
So, if you think you might want to publish something, someday, take some time and have a good picture taken. I pinky swear you will be very glad you did!
