The first part was creating your foundations, creating a vision, a mission statement, developing your core values and your identity. I enjoyed this part of the house building, because I could relate to a lot of it, and I will be putting this information up here shortly, but for now, I want to continue with the Catherine Mede Brand. (I even have a logo if anyone out there has any ideas on how to make it computer generated, would really appreciate it.)
I have also made the firm decision to be Catherine Mede when I write, because I value my privacy and I want to be able to separate my writing life from my home life. Catherine Mede will be ideal for this.
The second part was the walls and floors. This I have struggled with a bit and here is why. Here you focus on your customers, your products and your positioning. Hmmm. I don’t have customers yet, but who do I want to be my customers? What are my products going to be? How do I want to position myself in the writing market? These have all been extremely interesting to go through and explore and I have decided… here it is – to go into the fantasy romance genre.
why? Because most of what I have written is fantasy, and there is an element of romance in each of them. I can develop them further to fit into the markets I want to target. This gives me a target audience and helps me to develop my positioning further.
I haven’t received the next part yet, but will let you know how I get on.
As far as KQ&N is concerned, I am slowly ticking through it. Today (being Sunday in NZ, so I am writing this a day early) is the perfect rainy day for me to edit Ch10 – 12 – that will put me slightly over halfway of the editing process. But if all goes well, I hope to get this one out to a publisher by the end of the year.
