Thinking long-term — and we mean decades into the future — could be tough even before COVID-19 upended our lives.
Nowadays, we don’t fault anyone who struggles to think just a week or two ahead.
However, Joanna Penn invites you to rise to the challenge for the sake of your author career.
After all, seeing your stories as just books and not as intellectual property vastly limits your vision for how they can support you (and your heirs) for years to come.
Penn discusses this concept and how to apply it with fellow author David Farland in an episode of her Creative Penn podcast.
You can listen to them talk about this and other topics — such as what the post-pandemic publishing world might look like, what a story arc that could easily translate to TV looks like, and what a deal-breaker contract clause might look like — on her website, which also has a transcript of their chat.
