It’s been a couple of weeks since I returned from my first in-person WMG workshop in Las Vegas and my noodle is still rattling around my skull, trying desperately to make sense of the information flood.
I learned about podcasting, audiobooks, gaming rights, merchandise licensing, Hollywood contracts, discoverability, marketing, branding, social media, and ohmyGodsomuchmore…
It. was. a. lot.
But there was one thing–ONE thing–that I was able to compile out of all of that brain-code.
And that perspective told me that the next thing I need to put all of my creative focus into is writing the next story. 52 Stories in 52 Weeks was a great accomplishment and one I won’t belittle, but it was a mere footnote toward something greater. I’ve seen that among the fellow writers that visit here and being among such a cadre of professionals in Vegas humbled me beyond words. I know that if I let up on the gas now, it would be a huge mistake.
How about you, friends? What’s your perspective? Do you know what you need to focus on in order to make the greatest impact on your life?
