IWSG & Next Steps

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Today is another Insecure Writer’s Support Group posting day. What’s the group all about? We share and encourage each other without feeling we’re creating mountains out of molehills

Our hosts who are helping Captain Alex this month are  M. Pax, Tracy Jo, Patricia Lynne, Rachna Chhabria, Feather Stone, and Randi Lee!

I’m not feeling insecure this month, but as I shared on the IWSG site on Monday, comes the time when we have to make decisions on how to advance our writing careers. After some thought, I’ve settled on a few things, which include being part of a Christmas box set and placing a book on NetGalley in another couple of months.

I’m also doing what I should be doing alongside this other stuff, which is writing the next few projects.

I hope you’re making strides along the path you want to go and that you’re putting a plan in place to help you meet your goals. What are your next steps on the writing or business front?

  4. I wish I could do those things with my published eBooks, but my publisher probably wouldn't let me. :\

    Good luck with your goals!

  5. We make decisions and set goals or go home.

    NetGalley is expensive. You must be part of a group.

  9. It nice to not feel insecure for once! I admit, it's great when you can make decisions for your writing career and goals. Sometimes you have to wait on publishers and agents to make those decisions.

  13. Good for you for having a plan! My plan is to finish drafting my trilogy. I have steps after that, but that's the biggest right now.
