CoverAlthough I have written for decades, I don’t have a wide variety of publishing experiences. So, this is how I will proceed for my next project from what I know now.

I’ll write about something that intrigues me. I think one of the most powerful forces in society is the ability to utilize insights. My fiction writing will continue to celebrate the quirky nature of subtle lessons and relationships.

I will fully develop characters, relationships, and motivations. However, I will write loosely concerning times, days, and seasons. I have spent more time during revision adjusting the details of the weather than the important points of the plot.

I will try to master the use of the audio-notes feature on my phone to record ideas, details, or entire action scenes when talking is more convenient that writing.

I’ll stay well organized.

I’ll take energizing walks when my brain is dry.

I’ll continue to seek out like-minds with whom to share ideas, phrasing, and coffee.

I’ll stay in touch with the mentors I have come to know.

I’ll hone my skills of interviewing experts for primary research.

I’ll try to stay on top of organizing my photos. Although my book did not require photos, the website did, and the trailer will. It’s a lot easier to take pictures at the time of the writing than to dig them up later.

I’m going to research my next project and confirm the salability of my topic, presentation, and length before I do much writing.

I’m going to expect to send out many queries for my next book before I get a nibble.

I’m going to continue to explore different modes of social media.
