Let’s evaluate how well I achieved my 2014 goals:
I am setting a few goals for myself for the year.
finish A Yuletide Wedding (prequel/companion to A Christmastide Courtship)
revise the novel I finished last spring that I know needs so much work
write the 4 companion short stories/novellas that go with Courtship and the other novel, so I can close those loops in my imagination and move on to other character sets
finish one of the other novels I have started…either the one I was working on last summer and abandoned before DCon, never (yet) to go back to, or the one I started during NaNo that is still at the forefront of my imagination
Boy, 2014 was an epic fucking fail.
I think I’m going to be more modest with my goals for 2015:
- finish A Yuletide Wedding (prequel/companion to A Christmastide Courtship)
- revise Anything But a Gentleman
- publish AYW
- rework the ebook files and covers for my three currently published works and republish them
Bonus goal: write anything else. Don’t care what. Don’t care if it’s new, old, related to one of the things I have finished or not.
I am holding Anything But a Gentleman from publication until i have its two companion novellas written and can publish and publicize them together. Perhaps antsiness to publish the main book, once I get it revised, will help inspire me to write them.
Perhaps this year I will not fail so abjectly at the modest tasks before me. If nothing else – I can’t do WORSE than I did last year.
