Description: How long have you been working toward a writing career and struggling to see the results you’re looking for? Or, if you are published, is it as satisfying as you thought it would be? The unfortunate mistake many writers make is leaving their careers up to the publishing industry. They spend years learning their craft, writing books, and trying to break into the industry. And knowing how tough the odds are, they are often willing to accept any offer, only to find the option they settled for isn’t as fulfilling as they’d hoped.

In this workshop, you will learn how to take the reins on your writing career. As modern authors, we are lucky to have so many choices at our fingertips but sometimes we let those choices distract us from forging our own way. Rather than leaving the fate of your writing career up to the publishing gods, you will hone in on your own vision for your career, getting clear on the writing and publishing path that best fits you, and how to implement that vision in 2020.

Week 1: What Kind of Writer Do You Want to Be?
In Week 1, we will work on getting clear about what kind of writer you want to be, the kind of writing that most calls you, what you hope to get out of a writing career, and what your strengths and weaknesses are. Once you know who you are and what you want, you will be better equipped to make the right choices for your career.

Week 2: What Kind of Author Do You Want to Be?
In Week 2, we will discuss the pros and cons of traditional publishing, small publishing, and independent publishing and how to choose the one that most aligns with the goals you have for your writing career.

Week 3: Creating a Big Picture Vision for Your Year
In Week 3, we’ll talk about the art of setting achievable goals and creating action steps to start moving you closer to your writing career vision. You’ll decide on your main goals for the year and plot them out on a calendar so you can see what you’ll be able to accomplish in 2020.

Week 4: Week Planning and Habits
In Week 4, we’ll go over how to create daily and weekly routines to optimize your writing time amongst all your other commitments. We’ll also talk about how to prioritize your writing and how to stay motivated in the short-term so you can reach your long-term goals.
