Future Series #4: Patience

The Fourth in a Four-Part Workshop Series About How to Think About the Future

Long term writers have developed the ability to understand time and publishing. We know when to be calm, when to get excited. We understand the concept of patience.

Beginning writers and early professionals all want the brass ring now, not tomorrow, but now, with no idea that sometimes it is easier to reach the goal with a little careful planning and some patience.

This workshop is about learning the habits and structures that will allow you to understand patience to help your business into the future. Most writers never give this one ounce of thought.

This workshop along with the others is a workshop to help you train that thinking. And maybe save your entire writing career because getting in a hurry is often the most dangerous thing you can do in publishing.

This is the fourth workshop of a four workshop series taught by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. You must have the first three workshops in the series before you can move onto this last one because these four workshops build on each other. And even with four six-week workshops, we will only cover a small amount of this vast topic.

The workshops will be offered every month, so no worries about them going away at any point.

But we hope by the end of the workshops you will understand how to think about how powerful a tool patience is for your business. And especially in creating a business that will withstand the test of time. And we also hope these workshops will help you know how to build a writing business that will last.
