The Game Plan Moving Forward

So I sat down yesterday for about an hour and figured out my strategy going forward as a writer. There is a lot to it, and some of the notes will only make sense to me. But I thought it might be neat to show you guys a little bit about how my mind works. This is my overall plan, my plan for my social media, and the plans for Waystone Magazine, the zine I run. There is a lot on here, but the dream is that each thing I can check off as done will get me one step closer to writing for a living!

Most relevant to here: I intend to blog here every Sunday 9the day I am setting aside as my main social media day).

Overall:

Record audiobooks of my tales

Finish Gump Horror

Start attending cons as a vendor

Write a short for: A’ar, gun mages, knights, hunters, twin suns. Pair with Valko and Steam and release as one title.

Make good quality flyers, business cards, etc

Look into different types of merchandise. Shirts and the like.

Alabama book fair booth

Writing classes? How to get published?

Get stuff up on dm’s guild. Make supplemental material for my worlds.

A company that helps writers get set up and going. A collective?

Figure out from the page to the stage, and/or street performance involving writing
