I promise I didn’t forget about you!Just had to change up the schedule a bit to fit it in.
Just had to change up the schedule a bit to fit it in.
The fiction challenge as it stands right now simply can’t continue in the same format.
So, I need your votes once again.
Here’s the options:
I’m swamped. Another 16 hour day last night with SUCCESS. I love, love, love what I’m doing over there, and those 16 hours fly by.
But that also means I can’t do this challenge (avg email has been 1000 words long) and learn a new genre (mystery) and write at least 3 novels in 90 days.
I’ve been saying it for about two years now: The future of fiction is collaboration (thanks to indie speed and Amazon’s distribution).
In this set up, I’d work with someone to create the stories, do massive life altering dev edits, teach my sneaky writing ways, and pour a TON of capital and marketing skills into making the books sell.
#2. Hire Ghostwriter
Honestly, I don’t really want to do this.
Having done it in the past, I much prefer working with someone who has long term skin in the game.
But it is an option.
#3. I still do everything but change the format of this challenge.
I was thinking of cutting emails back to once, maybe twice a week.
Also, I’ll need to change genre.
I just haven’t been knee deep in mystery long enough to even fake it. The research component would be too time intensive for me. Private Eye mysteries don’t do it for me.
This 90 challenge WILL happen.
I’m only sending this email to remain 100% transparent, open and honest, and to share with you my own thought process as I approach projects.
