Laurine's Game Plan

Project Description

Establish your voice, and create a content game plan.

Step 1: Establish Your Voice. Complete the following actions in order to determine how you're going to present yourself to your audience:

  • Who am I? I am:

    -I'm a good conversationalist. I talk as though it's just me and someone else, even if I'm addressing an audience.

    -I know a lot about writing and the writing industry, having had an internship with a literary agency and befriending several editors/writers who are also in the industry.

    -I am ambitious as fuck. I seriously should have been a Slytherin.

    -I tend to make unintentional jokes that end up being deep or hilarious somehow.

  • What do I have to offer?

    -I can review YA fantasy books, since I'm a voracious reader and I tend to buy at least 2-3 new books every month.

    -I can provide writing tip sheets, as I do already, with tips and tricks to help writers improve their writing craft.

    -I can provide feedback or critique on ideas or excerpts.

  • Merge 'em!

    -Since I'm a fantasy writer, including fairy tale retellings, and since I adore fairy tales, I'm going to take my knowledge and wit and do analysis on YA fairy tale retellings and compare/contrast them to their original source material to see if they captured the soul of the original tale. (This is still rough, but I know I want to talk about fairy tales, retellings, and fantasy in general.)

Step 2: Create a content game plan. Narrow down the Who, What, Where, When, and How for your platform:

  • Who is your target audience?

    -The YA-NA age range, so anywhere from 16-30+

  • What service are you offering?

-Analysis on fairy tales, the popular and obscure, from all corners of the world, and how they're reinterpreted in present retellings.

  • Where are you going to post your content?

    -Considering if I did blogs, they would look like essays...I'm going to have to learn some video editing techniques and think about starting up a vlog. I'm a much better conversationalist than I am an essayist (I blame the years of college teaching me to BS my way through papers) but until I figure out how to properly shoot and edit a vlog, I'll continue to post blog content on my author website and Tumblr.

  • When are you going to post your content?

    -Once a week, every Tuesday

  • How are you going to spread the word?

    -My Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, as well as my author website.
