Last month, I took a month off from most of the work I do for clients because I needed some time to get my head screwed on straight. I love writing and the fact that I make a living from lining words up in a row never fails to amaze me. But I needed to know that I was going to keep moving forward — that I hadn’t reached the end of where I was able to go. I did a lot of thinking, reading and talking and I’ve come up with a plan that will get me where I want to go.
But Where Do You Want to Go?
One of my big pleasures is talking and writing about writing. I like digging deep and looking at how other people are doing it. So, I want to know, where do you want to go? Where do you want your writing to go?
But this question is a two-parter. In the course of my month off, I also noticed that there are a lot of holes in the information that someone making the decisions I was considering needs. I found what I needed, with some digging, and I have huge piles of notes. I feel like some of this information will come in handy for other writers, but I’m not sure what’s the most useful. So here’s the second question: What do you want to know about the business of writing? What do you need for your next step?
My Next Step
Depending on your answers, I’m planning to focus on what you tell me you need most. I’m going to put together the information in a way that will actually be useful — no trying to puzzle through my chicken scratch at the very least. So I really appreciate any answers you can give me. If you have a preference for how you get information, go ahead and toss that in there too.
Just leave your responses in the comments — I can’t wait to see them!
