Finding Time for Writing

I find the time for my writing with current deadlines...like my b5 media blogs and Country Kitchen columns. However, finding time for my other writing projects, midst substitute teaching, working at the deli, and helping Jim with our business, seems to go by the wayside.

I must, this summer, squeeze in more than hit-and-miss time if I'm to finish:

  • Sarah Jane picture book
  • Papa Goes to War chapter book
  • Uncle Buffalo Bill picture book
  • Promoting my Family Story Writing classes

Decide upon a direction....and focus until I'm finished!

What is My Brand?

Should writers brand themselves or be a multi-faceted writer?

There are differing opinions to this. If you focus on one objective, you will miss other opportunities. If your chosen field falters, you may not be able to move forward in it.

I've been a multi-faceted throughout my life and have had many writing experiences. Where do I go from here?

Do I focus (brand myself) on one area exclusively? Or do I venture into the various opportunities that come along, or that I seek out?
