I know you feel overwhelmed with all your responsibilities. I know you want to connect with others because writing is such a lonely job. But don't lose your mystery with all the access readers, other writers and curious people in general demand through social media and GPS tracking and location services. Everyone wants to know everything about you, but it can be hazardous to your career to give them too much too soon.
We live in a time of fads that come and go overnight, literally. There were times when fads lasted for years, but now there are so many new things beckoning our attention, we move on more quickly. I'm not sure where this break neck pace is headed, but it can't be good. As an author or writer, it's difficult not to become a victim of a fad. By no means is it a bad thing to catch on during one and ride it out, but most of us want a lifelong career and income from our pieces. Thus, we have to find a way to outlive the fleeting fancies of readers today. If they get all of you in the first book, article or interview, there will be no reason to return. That's the beauty of mystery. It keeps us coming back. Mystery will cause you to outlive fads. Mystery boosts you to iconic levels. If you plan to last, you must maintain some mystery.
