In the process to better define my writing company I have had more writing opportunities come to me...or maybe I went to them. I have been researching, writing, rewriting and editing for the last 4 days. From when I wake till I go to bed. I love it!!
A contract that I started prior to the challenge has resulted in a flood of work the last few days not to mention an article that I wrote in May needed further editing. In between all of that...I have stayed strong and continued my personal growth experience.
My novel- I write and write and write...then had to erase 2k words the last few days. I got rid of one of my favorite chapters. It didn't work with the plan. I love the writing and lovingly copied and pasted it in another document but it won't work for this book so it is out of there. I have been putting that off for a while but not any more time to get this done.
My blog- I have started the rearranging of the blog. (As you may have noticed.) Moving to the two columns gives me more possibilities and I can start setting up for sponsors and add a more uniform method for my dear readers to follow me and my misadventures. Who doesn't want to do that?
I also have been working on marketing and branding. So far the focus is on social avenues. I think this will be the easiest to start with because of the low entry cost. I am excited. When I wonder away from my social networks I forget about all the incredible people you meet this way.
My business- Thankfully my contracting work has been prolific. I am still working on the business plan...which is a little behind schedule for me.. But it will get done. In the meantime as I work on it I am doing it. I have contacted a few freelance groups and am looking forward to getting more work.
My growth- Again...this part is continual. Everyday I open up my WIP and trudge through that business plan I feel validated in my growth. I know that when I get that feeling that I am intimidated to submit something or contact someone for possible work I am growing again.
This process is interesting. To my family it looks like I am chilling on the sofa. Meanwhile, I am emailing, writing, researching my butt off. I have noticed a strange cramp starting in my right hand..pointer finger. Pretty sure it is the early signs of carpal tunnel. All athletes get injuries. Maybe I need to start stretching.
Write on folks.
How are your challenges going? What kind of progress are you seeing? Any suggestions of stretching to ward off carpal tunnel?
