The end of the year has arrived, and I did not complete my goal of publishing two novellas, but! I am on the way to completing a novel instead, which I am feeling very excited about and loving every minute of.
I did achieve my goal of blogging more thought stuff, instead of just reviews, and that has been going well. It opens up my mind more to try to describe my thoughts, and even seems to be making me have more thoughts than usual, and see the world in a different way. It’s a great feeling!
I also have increased my writing output so much that in the past few months I’ve doubled my word-count on the novella, that paltry 20k that took me a year to write is now at 40k and growing quick.
My goals for this year are to finish the novel, get it edited and begin working on publishing it! I’m not sure how long I’ll try the traditional route before I self-publish it, but I am going to give traditional publishing a try this time. Either way, it will be out in the world for people to read at some point. What reason is the to write if not?
I also plan to continue my post every day action for as long as I can. I think it’s a great exercise, and writing–any writing–every day is a necessity for writers to keep rust off their fingers. Try it yourself!
I hope your 2016 was great and your 2017 is even better. What are your goals this year?
