“Concerning my creative career.”
My tries of yesteryear Fell on the soil Bloomed out a strange plant Whose leaves I ate this year — Mistakes to not make again Mistakes, to not make again. -Eiravel-
Here comes the time of the year where some resolutions need to be taken. As for my 2019 resolutions,
most of them have been achieved, like * finishing my novel, * publish it, as well as being clear on what I really want to achieve, and on which pathway should I much more focus my attention. * Now that I’ve been able to achieve some of my goals (though it’s only one bit of the whole plan), I can continue my launch through this self-made adventure as an independent writer/author. (*Read Bits Of Thoughts From A Shattered Heart if you want to know what happened after I self-published).
So here are some of my main resolutions for my 2020 creative career:-
Finish my poetry book
Top priority on my list of resolutions for this year — give birth to my second book.
Find a publisher for the physical format of my books
My original plan was to use the money gained through my ebook sales to print my books and distribute them independently, because printing books costs a lot, or even translate them myself in French… but I guess that I can’t do everything all alone, for this all way too stressful for me.
Keep up with a healthy weight
That one too was on my list of priority for my 2019 resolutions, but I did not achieved my goal of regaining a healthy weight. Thing is, when I’m unhealthy the needed creative energies don’t flow well throughout my body.
Make the needed connections
Now that I’ve given proofs (through blogging, writing poems & short stories, and as well as my ability of producing books, I think that it’s time for me to go seek those local professional authors, as to further expand my library of knowledge – while they might perhaps help me to publish my coming books.
Try those sites built to sell services
I think that I’m ready, or I need to force myself to be ready; for as you can see, I have extra costs to pay now, thus, if books don’t sell, I’ll need to work towards other things.
Post on this blog once per week
At least try to organically optimise as to attract readers to my blog; because what’s the use of sharing my thoughts or any other content relevant to my experience and adventure if there’s no one to read my posts… so I’ve decided that this year I’ll try to maximise my chance of being found through the web.
Treat what I am doing as a business
Because that’s what it is, isn’t it? Though the steer wheel is not in my hands, I intend of leading my small biZ like a more gentle version of a caid or donna, or not… 😅.
Be more present on Social Medias
Perhaps I’ll be able to get a reading audience through social medias.
I guess that’s all folks. I do think that I have a very busy agenda for this whole year. Now let’s see what adcomes of it, for nowadays the currents are always changing and shifting, or things aren’t working how we want them to, thus our sails need to be constantly adjusted in the proper direction; but I guess that I am a very adaptive person, and in the end I know that most of my resolutions will materialise — one way, or the other.
