Changes are in store for this writer…and really they always are. I’m constantly taking a look at my long-range plan and tweaking my weekly efforts to better align with the plan. Since it’s October now that means it is time for another tweak. Note that my plan doesn’t change. My five year plan has remained the same since Day One of my writing adventure. What does change is my approach to that plan, depending on all of those influences that hit us writers almost daily.
So that will be our focus today…..adjusting the approach to our plan.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Let me admit right here and right now that I have never liked reading Ayn Rand….but…I like this quote.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Don’t be afraid of change in this business. The online writing stage is changing almost daily, and you need to change with it….but above all, and I say this in all seriousness….work on perfecting your craft. I don’t care what approach you take and how many things you try to change; if your writing is subpar then people will notice.
SEE YOU AGAIN ON THURSDAY
Every Tuesday and Thursday you can count on this writing blog to appear. I hope you find something that is helpful, and thank you for visiting during your busy day.
