I decided that this was the year that I was going to make a full time commitment to writing. While I have yet to be written a check for all of my hard work, I am right now viewing this as an unpaid internship. I have been gaining experience in all aspects of my 'company', Sandi Writes Books.
- product development
- editorial department
- human relations
- social media
- marketing and promotions
- research and education
- finance (nothing coming in just yet, but money is certainly going out for courses, contests, and books)
Ten years ago I certainly would not have predicted that this is what I would be doing. I love it, and for now, I wouldn't want to be doing anything differently.
So 2011 is leaving me with a full time commitment to writing, let's hope that 2012 comes in with someone who is interested in helping me share my writing with the world.
