First One Done…

And still available. Second one starts in January. Third in March and last one in May.

Four different six-week workshops on the topic of thinking about the future in your writing career. You can sign up for all four in a bundle of four and save some money and as I said, even though the first one is done, you can still go through it (at your own pace).

Or you can get a Lifetime Workshop Subscription with all the workshops in it (about $15,000 in workshops for $3,000) and for a short time get free tuition ($750 value) into the Business Master Class here in Vegas in October. Write me for information. (And Lifetime Workshop Subscriptions are a gift that can give for years and years to come.)

So here are the four Futures Workshops and their descriptions.

You have been creating all the stories and novels. Getting them out to readers, promoting them, then moving on to the next story. Great!

Now what? What do you do with that story from last year or that novel from three years ago that is just out there?

Most long-term writers make most of their money off of their inventory. But the question is how and when to focus on that aspect. And how to even think about it.

This workshop is a workshop to help you train that thinking.

For example, do you know the answers to the following questions?

— When do you relaunch a novel or series. And how?

— How do you even think about an older book?

— What should you fix, what not to touch, and why?

— How often?

And that is only a very few of the questions that need to be worked through by each of us as we move into a future where our books never go out of print. But our job is to keep them from getting stale and to continue to help them sell for decades.

This is the first workshop of this four workshop series taught by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. (It is still available to go through at your own pace and do the assignments, just as a Lifetime Subscriber would be.)

You have been creating all the stories and novels. Getting them out to readers, promoting them, then moving on to the next story. Great!

Now what? How do you create even more opportunities for your stories?

As we showed in the first workshop in the series, most long-term writers make most of their money off of their inventory. But the question is how to create and then take advantage of opportunities that exist for even more.

This is the second workshop of a four workshop series taught by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. You must have the first workshop in the series before you can move onto this second 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 first one is offered at any point, so no worries about it going away.

This Workshop is Offered in March to start with and at any time after that until the 4th workshop is finished.

Long term writers have developed patterns and habits and structures in their business that help them survive the ups and downs of this business.

How to you keep going book after book, year after year? Is your very method and focus on your writing going to eventually stop you cold?

This workshop is about learning the habits and structures that will allow your writing business to survive 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 future thinking. And maybe save your entire writing career.

This is the third workshop of a four workshop series taught by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. You must have the first two workshops in the series before you can move onto this third 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 first two will be offered to take at any point, so no worries about them going away.

But we hope by the end of the workshops you will understand how to think about the future of your writing and especially in creating a structure that will stand the test of time.

This Workshop is Offered in May.

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 future 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 first three workshops will be offered at any point, so no worries about them going away. However, when this fourth workshop is done, they will vanish for anyone not already signed up and only be available through the bundle.

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.

Kris and I think this might be the best and maybe the most important series of workshops we offer.

Again, they build, so you must take the first one before going for the second one.
