I'm sleep deprived, having been up all night taking care of sick kids. But at the same time, I'm giddy. Things are happening. Finally! I'm breathing a little easier again. It feels goooooooood.
While I was up with the baby, I did some thinking. Really deep thinking. About writing. About my strengths and weaknesses. What I want from my career. You know, I thought I knew the answer to that. But in reality, I didn't. I had a hazy picture of what I wanted to accomplish but no idea, really, how I'd get there.
Now that I've started exploring this stuff, I feel a new sense of direction. And I'm excited! There's a new project I may tackle, that I'm hoping will be IT, the one that might get me where I'm wanting to go. It's an exciting time!
And so, fellow authors, I challenge you to sit down and look at your writing. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What books have done the best for you and why do you think that is? Where do you see yourself in the marketplace? What do you want readers to think of when they read/hear/see your name? And then how are you going to get there?
Have a great weekend!
Go Ahead, Share Your Thoughts! .
