Optimize Your Writing Life

In this #PrepTober article I want to talk about 3 simple steps to optimizing the time you have without guilt and without losing your mind. More specifically, I want to take you through my week, and how I came to understand working with myself and not against myself. I spent a lot of the tail end of the week thinking about what I did well and why, so I could integrate that into my own process, and I’m going to share that process with you.

The Author/Agent Relationship

We’ve talked a lot about writing a series, and about the pitfalls of how writing an especially long-standing series in a set genre can box you into being a writer of one genre and only one genre, when that may not be what you want to write for the rest of your life. This week, I want to talk about the author/agent relationship, how you can approach your agent about your interest in a broad writing career, and what to do if they aren’t capable or willing to pivot with you once you’re contracted with them.
