Hello my Writer Friends.

I hope you found last week’s writing tip, about big picture editing, useful.

This week we’re doing a quantum leap… from editing, to planning your book launch!

But what if you haven’t finished your story? Seems a bit premature to be planning the launch, doesn’t it?

It’s never too early to begin thinking about your book launch!

Where you will have it, who you will invite, what you will do…

I would like to submit two reasons why it’s great to begin planning well in advance:

1. The brain can be a strange thing… there’s something deep within us that works harder when we have a concrete aim. And what better concrete aim, than your book launch? I would like to suggest that if you have begun to plan your launch in advance, there’s something in you which will help you to keep writing when the time gets tough – because you have this goal in mind! Can you see how this would work for you? Do you think it would help you to keep writing with energy and enthusiasm, if you have begun to jot down some ideas for your launch?

2. Time zips past at an alarming rate. All of a sudden, summer is here! You know how it seems ages to a holiday, or a birthday, or Christmas… then suddenly it’s upon you and it catches you unawares? It certainly does for me! Well, if you already have the bones of your launch in place well in advance, you won’t be running around like crazy, trying to get everything done at the last minute, and possibly leaving something out because you ran out of time.

What do you think? Do you agree with both points?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
