What You Need to Do in October as a Self-Published Author

October is actually a great month to take stock of where you are with your writing. The September back-to-school feeling has worn off, and we aren’t yet in the November/December holiday rush, and it isn’t yet the resolution time of January.

  • What have you done thus far with your writing?
  • Are you on track to reach any goals you set back in January?
  • Do you need to do some extra work to catch up to where you’d planned to be?
  • Is there a habit you need to change that will improve how you work?
  • Do you need to modify your schedule to get ready for November?

Try working at a different time, such as earlier in the morning or later in the evening, to be sure you’ll be able to work enough to finish the year strong.

Are there any people you need to contact about your book?
Do you need to find a publisher, or meet with a writing group to finalize something you’ve been working on? October is a great month to do this before you and everyone else enter the final months of the year.

Have a wonderful October, and let me know if you have any tips for other self-published authors – I love to hear from you here or at!
