Writers, are you generating new words every day, editing your work, getting projects in the pipeline for publication? Giving a final push to all those goals you set back in January?
Summer’s coming to a close, the new school year has begun, and for me, it’s a perfect time to launch new projects.
Here’s what I have going on.
- Launching a new blog and website. Go Write Something focuses on providing information for people who want to learn more about writing, publishing, and marketing books.
- Launching a podcast on the Go Write Something site. I’m the stereotypical introverted writer, so this is a stretch for me, but I’ve already lined up author interviews, so it seems I’ll have to come out of my shell long enough to host a podcast.
- Collaborating on two series. I’ve teamed up with two talented writers to collaborate on two different series, one for young adults and the other decidedly not. The goal is to have the first in each series published by Christmas.
- Publishing a story collection under my pen name, C.R. Byron. The collection is finished and the cover created. While I’ve published all the stories individually, the collection allows me to sell them at a lower price for the bundle and allows me to have a full-length book on the shelves. Ebook to be published in the next few days. Print book to follow before the end of the year.
- Starting a mastermind group. I’ve found a few other women in the Atlanta area who are committed to personal and professional growth. We’ll be launching our mastermind group in November, with official meeting dates beginning after the holidays.
Don’t let the end of the year demands slow down your writing progress. Momentum in the last quarter of 2013 means you can set much higher goals going into 2014–and expect to achieve them.
If you’re reading this, I hope you’ll follow me over to GoWriteSomething.com. Sign up for weekly updates, and I’ll send you writing tips, information about publishing and marketing your books, and interviews with writers, agents, and other people involved in the publishing industry.
Go write something!
