Instructor Name Tracee Garner
Workshop Start Date 03/01/2021
Workshop End Date 03/31/2021
Workshop Hosted By Yosemite Romance Writers Chapter of RWA
About the Workshop It’s a brand new year, let’s audit your author career. I know that sounds painful, but if it means more efficiency, more clarity, maybe even more time saving, money saving and better earning strategy, sound good now? In this session, I’ll overview more than 12 areas that you need to take a look at and think about. You’ll answer important questions, create a strategy and get action items for each component of your author life.
The Categories are:
1. Organized Workspace (Is your workspace set up for efficiency, privacy and productivity?)
2. Technology
3. Writing Craft & Tools
4. Your Social Media Platforms
5. An Efficient, Consistent Process for Getting the Words Down
6. A Supply of Inspiration
7. Health and Wellness Routines
8. Self-Care Regimen
9. Your Current Memberships Providing You Opportunities?
10. Your Writing Expenses
11. Your Writing Income
12. Your Estate Plan
13. Creating Additional Income Streams
14. Is it time for Affiliate Income?

There will be questions to think about AND resources to visit, for ALL of these various segments that will help you consider things you haven’t thought of and start to make a plan to leave it (Cause it’s just right) or tweak it. I have a 17+ page workbook and slide deck.

Over your author-life career there are so few people that cover this type of information. You can get a social media or website audit for a fee, but has someone really ever helped you think about your author-life from so many different sections and a more critical standpoint? Probably not. That’s what I wanted to do for my own now 20 year career and so I put this together!

Make a plan, fix it all, move forward.
