I revised my business plan today. At the beginning of each month, I will update my business plan. Three years ago, when I began my journey, my husband suggested I write a business plan. I was incredibly irritated with him. I was beginning a creative process and he wanted to add structure to it. I, reluctantly, wrote a plan. By the time I finished, I realized it was a great idea. I had some basic guidelines to help me remember what my goal was...publication.
DO YOU HAVE A BUISNESS PLAN? HOW DO YOU STAY FOCUSED ON REACHING YOUR GOAL? (This doesn't just have to be for writers...)
***My year began with a bang. I won Karen's blog contest. Even though her contest is over, I hope you'll hop over and check her out. Bethany and Suzette are having an awesome contest! Their prize list includes: 2 Query Critiques, 2 First Five Page Critiques, and 1 Inscribed/Autographed The Dark Divine. Good luck to all.... (Me too).
