Works-in-Progress

redpenHave you ever thought about why current projects are called “work-in-progress” (WIP)?

Have you ever been in the middle of something and it…just…doesn’t….feel quite right?

I’m there.

I have a couple friends I can use as sounding boards and I am very grateful to them! Last night, I chatted with one of them on Facebook;

The project, a book, was tentatively titled Selling Yourself Is Not Prostitution: Networking & Self-Promotion for Wallflowers. For now, it will be a newsletter and possibly an ecourse that will be available through Udemy. Nothing on that is set in stone yet, but I will let you now what happens with that.

It will still be a book. Just not in the way I had originally planned it. But that’s the way it goes with WIPs. They’re changeable. Unless you have a written contract in hand that says it has to be a certain way, you can always change it up. So I am.

Today, I am working on setting up the newsletter. It will be offered through MailChimp.com. I will post tomorrow when I have the signup information.

Well, Hello There

n110046421290_9910I accidentally have a fresh, new blog. How did this happen?

I’m not exactly sure. I only know that it has to do with the update I did to my website last week. I deleted my email then, too, but I got that fixed relatively easily and quickly. I didn’t realize I had done the same thing to my blog until today.

This actually works out well. I wasn’t sure what to do with my blog or where I wanted to go with it. After a conference this past weekend, I have some better idea of what I want to do.

And so it begins.
