Buckle up, people! There’s going to be words flying all over this joint!
Last month, I was accepted into this intensive program to grow as a writer and an author-publisher. I’ve been expanding my mind and my body of work in incredible ways. I’m looking forward to blowing out goals and measuring outcomes that exceed expectations under the guidance of our brilliant teachers, all while writing and publishing with my team.
Over the four months, my team and I will each be producing 35 publications. That’s a mixture of shorts, collaborations, and novel-length work. Some of it will be in existing series, some will be stand-alones. All of it will be very exciting!
By the end of the year, I’m tracking to have produced almost 900k words! That’s an incredible milestone for me, and it’s changing the way I think about my business. I feel like I have landed on a different planet where anything is possible with my writing.
“Phoenix Prime is a Ph.D. level workshop that spans approximately four months. It uses applied industrial psychology to address components of writing, marketing, branding, business and contract issues, productivity, etc. that combine Creative Writing and business perspectives. The participants will create a portfolio to showcase their work alongside students in doctoral programs in several major universities. The objective, in addition to expanding the professional growth of all the participants, is to study the impact of the independent author-publisher on the commercial fiction industry.”
TL;DR – if your friend is in this program, they will be planting roots in their office chair. Be kind. Bring snacks. They’ll come up for air sometime in April.
Stay tuned as I begin sharing new things coming out of this program!
Wish me luck!
Onward… and KOWABUNGA!!!!
