A new year has just been born, and like most other authors, I’m making a list and checking it twice. Except this list has nothing to do with presents or the holiday season. I’m assessing what #writing projects can be finished and marketed in 2015.
Of course I’m checking the list twice because I don’t want to set up a bar that seems impossible to accomplish. After all, there’s no reason to put oneself under unnecessary stress to complete a mountain of work. I made that mistake last year, and I shouldn’t do it again. Currently, my list of goals for the New Year seems quite possible to complete.
My first and most important goal is editing and publishing my #fantasy novel “The First Light.”
Finish and publish my second short story collection called “Stasis and Other Dystopian Tales”
I also have two comedic #StarTrek fanfiction pieces that need to be edited as well.
Lastly, I have several short stories and a few flash fiction pieces that I’d like to try to publish traditionally. These stories can’t be put into a collection because they vary in genre. Therefore, I’ll finish what I can. I consider this part of my list to be the “cherry on the cake” so to speak.
Happy New Year Everyone!
What’s on your list for 2015?
