Truly, madly, deeply

Jul 15, 2009 | Pen names, The Art of...., Writing | 0 comments

There’s something comforting about pidgeonholes.  For a start you know where you’re supposed to be.  And in a world that likes to spend it’s time categorising and deciding where we belong, knowing where you *are*, especially as a writer, is golden.

It means you can decide where to market yourself.  Know where to spend your time promoting.  So, alongside the discussion about how I set my carreer back up, and put MYSELF back in the driving seat, how I handle pen names ‘etc’, I’m also going to talk about the important things, like marketing, and promotions, and self editing, and idea gathering, and workload management.

In fact, WorkBacktoNow is going to be YOUR goto blog for information.    See ya soon!

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
