Monthly Question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
I’ve been trying really hard not to think too much about this. I’m a worrier and thinking about the future is where it all begins. That said, I can’t deny that I don’t have at least five different 5-year plans currently fighting to be the plan I put in motion… I may be a hopeless case.
Three things I know for sure:
1) A revamp of my blog and overall writing methodology is in the works and will be put into motion starting sometime after the new year.
2) Whatever happens, I’ll still be writing and publishing in the next five years, though I may not be promoting it the way I have in the past.
3) I will be working on several collaborations, taking the spotlight off myself and focusing on the projects themselves.
My whole worldview on writing has shifted a bit and I can’t keep doing things the way I have been the past view years. Plus, I’ve fallen in love with a dog named Margie and feel I must tell her story. Changes are coming and they are scary for me, but in five years, I’ll still be me and I’ll still be writing.
Are you a worrier?
Do you have multiple 5-year plans?
Has your worldview of writing ever changed?
BTW- Alex J. Cavanaugh just released a prequel to his terrific space opera series. CassaDawn is set before the events in the first Cassa novel. Get your copy today.
