Realization

I want to be a writer.

Yeah, I sort of already knew that.
But I want to be more than a writer.
I have reached the moment where I want to be an author.

This means sacrifice.

Fewer social obligations. Fewer books read. Fewer hours watching TV shows that I don't really care about. Fewer other projects.

Also, this means

writing
finishing

and selling

In other words. I need to write, I need to finish, I need to get an agent.

Agents.... publishers... I need to connect. I need to hob nob. I need to network.

I need to go to conferences.

There is one in SF in February. I have been mulling it over for a while now.
It is expensive. Even though it is local, we are talking about $1000.

I think it would be worth it.

I would NEED to have something pretty concrete to market if I was there. No vague "I have an idea for a novel..." sort of thing but rather a "I am 75% done with my novel and it is about..." sort of thing.

I work well with deadlines. I always have. I like to plan, I like to make schedules. I like to have a looming Drop Dead Dates for completion.

I want to register for this conference.

I want to network, to meet agents, to shop my work.
I want to get a book deal.

What's next?

I need to have a fundraiser.

Any ideas?
