#MotownWriters: How i write … in my car video #timemanagement #productivity

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMqiskN2Bg0

Never enough time in the day because you’re always in your car?

How i write … in my car

I swear I’m not breaking laws or causing accidents, but I saw I was spending over 20 hours a week in my car and I needed to find a way to work.

I’m long winded as usual and I start the tip about 3:30, so if you want to skip, then I’m good with that.

Also, be aware, I am driving while I’m shooting this video, as usual, so I "talk" or "yell" at other drivers.

Plus, Detroit roads are a mother scruncher!

New message from your USA :: Michigan :: Detroit Municipal Liaison, rainechan

Week One is in the books, NaNoWriMotown!

How is your word count coming along? Are you ambitiously ahead of the game? Are you steadily putting in your 1,667 words every day? Or are you woefully behind (like me)? If you are ahead or keeping steady, congrats! Keep it up! If you are behind, fear not! There is still time! Even if you are currently staring at a blank page with a zero word count, it is still possible to win this!

How?

Join us at our big events! Our next big event is Motown Midway Madness on November 16th in Troy. The Michigan :: Elsewhere region is hosting a 1 ½ hour train write-in in Blissfield the day after Midway. Check it out here. Can’t make it to the big events? Attend a write-in! Write-ins are smaller, local gatherings. Did you know that attending the big events and/or write-ins is proven to get your word count up? They definitely made a difference for me. Find the Master Post of all our our big events and write-ins here, then come and join us!

How is your team doing in the Team Championship? Find out here! Not a part of the Championship? It’s never too late to take the highly scientific quiz and see if you get placed with the winning Submersibles team! (Or… y’know… those other teams…)

An announcement from Headquarters: Tomorrow, November 9th, is Double Up Donation Day! 24 hours to double up your daily word count, your writerly encouragement, and your commitment to NaNoWriMo. There will be hourly writing prompts on Twitter, Virtual Write-Ins, and all-day updates on Instagram. And for the first time, in addition to doubling up the $25 donor gifts, they’re also doubling up on the $50 donor gifts! You can learn more about Double Up Donation Day here.

Finally, (whew! What a long message!) don’t forget to back up your novel!

See you in Week Two!

#NaNoWriMo : New message from your USA :: Michigan :: Detroit Municipal Liaison, ML Owen #NaNoWriMotown,

NaNoWriMo Logo

New message from your USA :: Michigan :: Detroit Municipal Liaison, ML Owen

Boys, girls, and non-gendered writers of NaNoWriMotown, this is Owen coming to you LIVE from the Late Night First Push Party in West Bloomfield, where close to 30 passionate and tired writers are pumping out words on their way to victory! Spirits are high and the jokes are getting a little silly, being that it’s after midnight. We have homemade bread! Seven-layer dip! So much coffee! And we’re getting the month started right!

Quick note just to say even if you haven’t written a word yet, you’re still starting out the month right. NaNo is a marathon, and you can jump in at any time! All words are good words in November, so get your once-upon-a-time on! We can’t wait to see your progress.

The Team Championship has received its first update. We end day one with TEAM SUBMERSIBLES in a very exciting lead! Not sure what the Team Championship is? It’s a spirited competition between three teams to help us egg each other on toward the finish line, and it’s not too late to join! At time of writing, the teams split 88 courageous writers from all across Metro Detroit! Join us!

Know where else you can join us? At in-person events! Write-ins provide a sense of community and encouragement, and for many, they make the difference between a win and a loss. The current schedule of write-ins can be found here.

Sad you missed the Late Night First Push Party? Our next big event is Motown Midway Madness on November 16th in Troy. The day after Midway, Michigan :: Elsewhere is hosting an amazing 1 ½ hour train write-in in Blissfield! Tickets are $15, more info on that here.

Ok. Time for this sleepy ML to drive home and get some rest for tomorrow’s write-ins!

Write like the wind!

Book Trends for 2020 & beyond – The changes to come, my take on what’s to come and how to prepare. #bookmarket #mondayblogs

The look for 2020 and beyond publishing trends seems overwhelming, but this was my take on each point. This article 7 ways book publishing will change over the next few years was mind boggling, but these are my interpretations.

1. Sales will continue to move online – get your e-commerce and book distributor links together on your website.

2. There will be more big book retailers – make sure you make it as easy as possible for readers to locate your books there and send out reminders occasionally.

3. There are still two markets – cheap eBooks and commercial markets. But as indie authors you have opportunities to pick a side. Look at the analytics on your books and price them well.

4. Publishers will progressively shed overheads – Traditional or Indie, look to doing more marketing and sending out books next year.

5. Big publishers will see an ever-growing share of their own sales from their back-list. Pay attention to your back-list catalog and keep promoting them. New titles will be harder to sale, but for the back-list you can convert interest and awareness into sales.

6. Amazon Publishing will continue to make grow. Meaning you’re in competition with the main source you publish through. Start thinking locally, offline and even driving more exclusive sales on your website.

7. Entity self publishing will increase dramatically. This means even Netflix can come out with books now, which their thinking about. Competition is abound and we as authors have to get on the ball to write, publish and market and then repeat this process over and over again.

Even after all this takes place, there will be more changes coming, so hold on and prepare for the ride. Get a plan together to rock 2020.

 

What trends do you see coming? What are you or aren’t prepared for?
