Now it's time to create a plan. Allow your mentor to guide you toward your landmark.
Where do you wish to be in 5 years, in 2 years, in a week? Multiple landmarks can form stepping stones for your career.
5 year - three published novels, multiple published short stories, and a few published poems
2 year - second completed novel, one novel in query stage, and multiple published short stories.
1 year - one completed novel, short stories in progress and in the submission phase
Now - novel in progress, short stories in progress and in submission phase
Okay, the walkway may need a little work along the way but this is a start. Tomorrow let's lay the plans for the walkway. Set some needed actions in place that lead toward each stone.
