Today is the last Friday of the month, which makes it time for my post on The Five Year Project. Basically, it’s a group headed by Misha Gericke where you make a goal and review it each month. For me, it’s to have a world class publishing company. Feel like joining us? You can sign up here.
How it’s going: I’m not sure. It’s hard to make that transition from writer to editor. I know I’m much better at editing than I’ve ever been before. I know I can tell what’s good and what isn’t. I know I’ve had several requests from good writers who want me to publish their books. I just don’t know if I’m there yet. At this point I don’t feel like I have much more to offer than experience and advice, and I won’t sign on an author until I feel like I could actually help them. I know what it’s like to dream, and I refuse to compromise someone else’s for the sake of mine. So that’s where I am right now: not sure when ready is really ready.
How about you—have you ever been afraid to take that plunge?
