Despite the fact that there are many things that I want to do, I can't do everything. That means I'm going to have to put some things aside so that I can focus on a few things and do them well.
That's a really hard decision for me to make. Because I know that one of the things that is going to have to take the back burner for awhile is writing fiction. Don't get me wrong - I'm not going to stop entirely. But I need to choose my priorities.
Obviously, one of the things that has to take priority is earning enough money to pay bills and such. And since we're planning to move in the next year, we are going to have to have some money set aside for that. So, yes, I'm going to be putting more focus on earning money immediately, instead of some long term things I was doing. And yes, that means I'll be taking on new clients.
I'm going to put up my price info and stuff like that again here soon. The testimonials, price packages, etc. They do seem to help when it comes to bringing in clients.
I'm also going to write for some content mills. As much as it is not my favorite thing to do, it does pay the bills.
The other priority is my two residual writing sites. Writedge and Daily Two Cents are growing so fast and they are at the point where we are finally starting to see some income for us. Between me and my business partner, Michelle, we easily put in 6-8 hours of work a day on the sites so it would be nice to start earning accordingly from them.
Fiction writing is going to still be there. But I'm thinking of working on some longer works that will have more shelf life. The short stories that I've focused on can bring money in fast but the money only continues to come in for as long as you are putting out new stories. I'm not sure what I'm going to work on but I'll think about it. :)
Do you ever find that you are trying to do too much and as a result nothing really gets done?
