We're getting a glimpse of autumn here in the Midwest and it reminds me of all I adore about this season.
For me, autumn and spring are my "re-start" seasons. Those are the times that I dig out lists of things to do and start checking off items.
For this fall: find a publisher; reboot promotion; and keep writing. Sounds simple, but as we all know, it isn't. I was interested to hear about Amazon Encore, and I may give that a try. Plus I have 6 manuscripts that are looking for a home (never published).
It's really a matter of me clearing my schedule for a few days and just focusing on things to get organized. I'm enjoying myself with writing so much that it's hard to do that, but I am hoping to wrap up my first draft of this current book by the middle of October. Then I can take a break, take a deep breath, and do some Business for a change. While my writing is going to well I hate to set it aside.
Of course, I've got a lot of other things clamoring for attention. I have a day job and it's heating up with a lot of deadlines. And I'm assisting in planning a Major Event for next March -- a garden conference that normally has 500-600 attendees, all run by volunteers. Big coordination effort and it's taking up about 10 hours a week of my time.
So I need to clear the decks and focus -- but not soon. For now, I want to write and enjoy that process as much as I can. Business can wait ... right?
