This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of presenting a workshop to the Indiana Romance Writers RWA Chapter on planning and goal setting.
Creating a business plan is a lot more fun than it sounds! “Dream Big Plan Smart” helped the authors define a vision for their careers, write personal mission statements and set goals for the year that are in line with the statements. The idea was inspired by an awesome series of articles by Maggie Worth, that ran in Romance Writers Report, Sept. -Nov. 2015. For anyone who keeps their back issues around, it’s definitely worth a read.
Of course, the challenge with any plan is sticking to it, but the talented members of Indiana Romance Writers are excited and motivated. Best of luck with your goals!
By the way, any authors looking for a good short conference this fall, should consider IRWA’s event on Oct. 26, featuring the amazing Damon Suede. Details here.
As usual, I forgot to take a photo when I was actually there, so this pix of my front porch office–preparing for the presentation will have to suffice.
Thanks again for a great day ladies.
