Managing Tasks: What I'm Learning As I Build My Writing And Publishing Ventures

It's been a while since I posted something at I've been wrapped up finding new projects while I've been ramping up for the release of a book. I've mentioned this book here in the past. It's made me think about how I've been approaching my businesses, both freelancing and the fledgling publishing house. I've not been as organized as I can be. I've let some things go while I've tried reevaluate what I really want to accomplish.

I think this process is ongoing. I've been especially interested in establishing appropriate goals. I keep revisiting this aspect, always looking at what I need to make them better and then taking some time to consider how I can develop plans and strategies that will allow me to meet these goals.

A Book

I can say with certainty that promoting and selling Heaven's Point Guard is a top priority right now. I want to take this opportunity to let everyone know that this book will be coming out on November 5, 2010. Read the first release  here. You can join the Founders House Publishing fan page and add you name to those on the event page for the official release details. There will be events to go along with this release. I will be updating those pages accordingly.

It's been a two-pronged approach for me since I'm involved both as the publisher of this book and as a co-author. Either way, I would be promoting this book. It's a great book telling an important story, one that is significant in my childhood community and in the surrounding counties.

Writing Projects

As far as freelancing is concerned, I have been bringing in new projects at a slow rate again. I hope that will be changing in the next couple of weeks. It has been less problematic to manage my tasks (since I haven't had too many of them). Ideally, I'd like have enough going on to fill my schedule, but it's not been how my workloads have materialized so far. I've been generalist freelancer and I don't foreseen changing that any time soon. Of course, finding a niche to write in that I both enjoy and provides profitable opportunities.

Stay Tuned...

I'm glad I had a chance to let people know more about things. There will be more news and updates in the coming weeks. For those interested in Heaven's Point Guard, you can visit Catch you later.
