July Plan Of Work

July Plan Of Work
Image: Go Springboard

As mentioned previously, this is my final monthly plan of work for my writing year. When this set of GDRs began in January 2009 I was still running from January to December but came to realise how important the Edinburgh Book Festival was in my writing life; it’s a month of recharging, re-evaluating, planning and giving over to new ideas.

So it made sense to move to an August to July work plan, thus, I am about to complete an 18-month plan of work. My final review of those 18 months will be published at the end of the month (there’s still a lot of work to get through) but this final set of monthly GDRs are designed not only to wrap up what I planned but also with a view to helping shape what’s to come.

The biggest question I’ll face in the next month is: where do I want to go next?
