Happy New Year!

In a few days we will enter the year of 2017. For many as year end approaches it is a time when business owners review the previous year and set their sights on the approaching year?

In many ways the writing world is similar.

Did I finish the book I began in early 2016?

If I finished writing the book, “How many copies did I sell?”

If my book did not sell well, “Why? What do I need to do to improve in this area? Should I change my writing style? Is my writing not applicable to my audience?”

Did I not bother to market my book correctly?

If I did not finish writing my book, “Why did I not finish it?”

It’s reflection time! If we are not pleased with our answers to the above questions, it is not to late and we are not a failure.
