Have you written down a plan for x years hence?


We are here working for what? Have you thought where you will get you as a writer in say. . . .5 years time? Have you thought it through? What are you doing now that will get you there? They sound like many questions, but in reality it is only one. What are you doing now that will get you where you want to be in say. . .5, 4 or 1 year's time?

    Hi, I cannot but agree with most of the points u make here, Future plans can & do go awry. But on writing down plans, I beg to differ. It involves many of d senses & this makes it more 'real'. And writing can easily be amended as u go along.

    There goes the voice of a professional author. It is the voice of security of focus & you would not need a written plan, would you? It is amazing that despite the busy schedule you find the time to be here. Thank you so much for sharing Alan

    How lovely and refreshing maven101. A woman of courage of her conviction. I do admire that.

    My question is not the HOW of doing this [although it comes into the answer] but whether you do or you don't & the why explains the objective. Thank

    DW Davis, thanks for responding. Changes keep us flexible, as you are with your plans. But a plan creates stars to light the way . . .and if we don't make it all the way, there are other stars we can grab on to. I love the RV and camping bit. Mmm
