The WRITER's HOLIDAY RUSH
So at the year's end, with all the Christmas shopping, Thanksgiving pig outs, we have the WRITER's DASH!
THE WRITER'S END OF YEAR MADNESS
So if you are like me and plan your books out for the next year based on what you've written this year, then you are busting your tail to get all your drafts done for your next year's releases.
THERE's NANOWRIMO in November
I use Nanowrimo in November to push me to write fast and finish up any unfinished manuscripts I have floating around. Sometimes it helps, other times, not so much.
THERE's MARKETING planning to be done by December
Yes, this is where I set up my dreaded marketing budget, hopes, dreams for the next year.
Every year I kick myself for finishing all the above at the last possible moment. My hope is to do all my writing for 2014 by October 30th. Take November 1st - December 30th off and just let my promos for those months run with little help.
IT NEVER turns out the way we plan.
And again this year, I'm 1.5 book short of my goals set at the beginning of the year.
