Reminds me of the old song by Chicago…”Does Anybody Know What Time It Is?”
Did you know that group started out as the Chicago Transit Authority? Does anybody care? J
So here we are with another installment of a blog that may or may not be doing any good. How’s that for a sales job?
Truth is, that’s the truth. I don’t know the value of this blog. I can track views of course, but translating those views into income???? Into a quantifiable measurement of my growth as a writer???? Good luck with that.
And that just happens to be the topic for today.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Yes, I love that quote, even though I’m not a huge fan of Patton.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
What is important to your business plan as a writer? Is this blog important? Are the articles I write on HubPages important? Is the time I spend writing for customers important? Are the articles I read about writing important?
I am the only one who can answer those questions, and if I come across something I am doing and I don’t feel it has value, then I need to discard it.
Let me put it another way: if things I am doing do not keep me on a path towards my goal as a writer, then they are not worth doing.
TIP OF THE DAY
Do you have a plan for your writing business? If not, get with it. If you are writing for income, then you are a business, and a business needs a plan…and a mission statement…and those two things are your guiding star in all decisions you make regarding your business. I can’t emphasize this enough.
PROMPT OF THE DAY
A visual prompt….for those of you who are, well, visual learners.
SECOND PROMPT OF THE DAY
I’m going to do an article next week using this one-word prompt. Call it a writing exercise. I hope you enjoy it.
SECOND TIP OF THE DAY
The holidays are coming. Don’t use them as a convenient excuse for not writing.
I’m tired so that’s it. I started at seven this morning and it is now four…time to call it a day.
Have a great week. I’ll try to return Thursday.
