Plans change, goals get pushed back, it’s just part of life. Whether for good reasons or bad reasons, we must adapt or die! (Overly dramatic for impact — did it work?) For me, June began with one goal and ended with a completely different one. It had the trickle-down effect, shifting all my goals, and I’m still figuring out the new target deadlines.
Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
In IWSG posed a question for this month:
What’s the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?
I thought about it, and though people have been kind and said nice things the one comment that took me by surprise, delighted me, and make me start planning was…wait hold on. Fade into backstory.
I’ve had several beta readers. I’ve revised and updated several times. The last beta, made comments and stuff too, but ended with, “You need to start on book two.” Um, yeah, that was awesome.
In other news, I’m participating in Smashwords 2016 July Summer/Winter Promotion and marking all my cookbooks down by 50%. The coupon code for each book is listed on its smashwords page (on the right side).
How do you handle those goals when they up and change on you?
