Part of my fun day - before first wine at Onyx.

Last week was a whirlwind. Much of this was because of a complete change in my newsletter.

Before, I was honestly floundering. I didn’t know what I should include in a newsletter, or what was expected. I kept getting caught on all the things I wanted to communicate, and the end result was messy, at best.

Because of a panel at BinderCon and a workshop by Bryan Harris and Nick Loper, I reimagined what my newsletter should be, and how to approach turning it into something that would serve readers (as well as my purpose). I won’t go into detail about what this meant and required, but I promise to explain what I did and why in my Wednesday Writer post this week.

Needless to say, I spent the majority of my days last week hustling that newsletter, and based on responses I received (again more details on Wednesday), it was worth it.

In addition to that, I got the majority of the SIX DEGREES curriculum formatted for print (all that’s left is the appendix) and covers are more or less set. I also got the new KHLOE ALWELL covers set for print-on-demand, so all the outlets now have the new covers. I’m curious to see what kind of impact this will have as I feel this cover redesign is the closest to typical “Bix Six” SFF series designs.

This is not the mention the several online workshops I attended and articles I read (because continuing ed is AMAZING and essential!).

It was a LOT to get done, and I was grateful for a break to go wine-tasting in Paso Robles on Saturday (everyone needs a break sometimes).

This week my intention is to:

  • Finish SIX DEGREES curriculum and get into print.

  • Format the devotional for print.

  • Contact some podcasters about being a guest.

  • Blog.

  • Write a second installment of “The Compassion Letter.”

  • Have a phone appointment on a conference proposal.

  • Follow-up on a networking promise.

  • Continue making website tweaks.

  • Do more entrepreneurial continuing ed.

  • Meditate!

I know it’s going to be another big week for me. How about you? Leave a comment below and let me know your plans!
