Narrowing Down Resources

I don’t think my body was ready for Monday after a busy weekend and my eyes were drooping writing before I went to bed but I still managed to get it done. My resource Monday involved listing out my progress from the beginning of the year and writing down my current income streams.

Then, I listed the ways to grow what I’m already building. My thought was that I had to look at where I’m at and center again on my goals for this year before I went further into my resources. Over the years, I’ve learned that I have shiny object syndrome when it comes to anything I do in life.

What do I mean, well, when I listen to podcast of an entrepreneur my brain will start to thing it’s the next best idea and I’ll have this urge to give it a try. Same thing with my writing. When I read a new book, I’ll think about what I could write in this genre. Don’t get me wrong, ideas are great but they’re better when their focused.

Instead of spreading myself thin and trying everything I’m seeing and hearing in the world, I take time to really think about the direction I want to go and the signature theme I want to be known for as an author. Yes, this could change later but I feel that I need to find that one thing, my genre, or my style and my job is to master that.

Let’s face it, many people want to be a Jack of all trades but most of us will end up mastering nothing by going this route. In other words, it’s better to master something than nothing. As writers, we can experiment and explore but it’s until we find our style of writing that we’ve started to master our calling.

I might end up being a journaling queen, or illustrated story teller with conversation bubbles but it’s still a signature. Since I want you to find your own signature or style, I want you think about your own goals. Write down what your drawn to in your writing, and what you read the most. Then, go and do another resource binge so that’s it’s more specific to what you need to reach your goals.

My posts are Monday to Friday!

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
