Writing with the intention to make an income requires planning. Regardless if your plan is for three months or a year, having a plan for your writing is crucial.
From the original article:
“… even if you like to be a pantser with your writing, it’s a good idea to look back at what worked last year, and plan ahead for the coming year. When I say plan ahead, I don’t mean you have to plan out every detail of your year. I do mean, you should jot down a sort of authorial blueprint that will help you accomplish what you want to get done this year.”
Planning helps you set goals, track your progress, budgeting, and so much more. Taking the time to create one (and using it) can have a huge impact on your writing business.
