Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. We’re ending out another quarter, so it’s time for another goals recap post. If you remember from last time, I set some goals at the beginning of Q4. As a refresher, they looked like this. Now, my Trello board looks like this. Let’s go over it in …
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.

As with other quarters I use a Kanban-style Trello Board for all my goal setting. If all of that is gibberish to you, let me explain. Kanban is a Japanese word and it means "signboard" in English. This type of board aims to provide a visual representation of the workload and a capacity measurement for how much work in each category can get done at one time. You put tasks on your Kanban board as space permits, rather than as line items come up. Most commonly in productivity circles you see the board divided horizontally into three parts.
How to Estimate How Long a Project Will Take
It's #Preptober for #NaNoWriMo and I wanted to talk to you a little bit about project management. I think it's important in light of the National Novel Writing Month that we all know how to objectively plan how to work on our projects every day. Once you figure out a few key things about your writing habits and capabilities, planning out how long it will take you to complete any given project will be only too easy.
