New Project for May? Finish the Project for March.
Excited about the new project? Uh huh, how’s that last project coming along?
It’s May 1 and my pal John Muldoon has his Secret Project month going and I was all excited to get moving on my book #2 after the success of my book #1 project. But I took a deep breath and I need to learn from my past experience: I shouldn’t start Project #2 until Project #1 is to a point where I’m satisfied that it’s done.
Project #1 is Not Done
Project #1 is The Secret of Kite Hill book that I published April 1. But I didn’t do everything I wanted to. I still have quite the laundry list:
- Marketing plan
- Print version
- Promotion (even just minor)
- Outline for book #2 (and does it flow from #1?)
- Add photos and illustrations to book
- Uh, edit …
Just going through that list will certainly bring on other to do items. Also, my day job is often helping writers promote their work so it’ll be a good experience to Walk the Talk.
So that’s May. When that’s done—and only when that’s done—will I embark on Book #2 and we’ll see where the adventures of Li & Lu take us this time.
