Since we’re still working on Timeweavers, I don’t want to give away many details yet. So I thought I’d fill in some posts with info and insights I gained from Rick Walton’s BYU class. The class was made up of people wanting to be authors, illustrators, agents, editors, and a few stray professions not necessarily related to the Children’s Publishing Industry such as lawyers and accountants. One of the first things we were supposed to do was figure out our career goals. I believe setting goals is a good idea for everyone, whatever their career path. My goal was simple, to become a published writer. I came up with 5 steps to get there and I’ve listed them below. In later posts I’ll tell you how I’ve done so far.
1. Complete Timeweavers with Jane
2. Learn more about publishing in the fantasy/sci fi genre
4. Choose an agent and submit Timeweavers to him/her
5. Begin next novel with Jane
