It’s that time again already. Six years. SIX. I didn’t think I’d be making a sixth one of these posts. Looking back on last year’s post, I was extra pessimistic. And I failed on most of those goals. Ha. In the last twelve months, I’ve had seven releases (boo, less than last count) and only four of those were full-length novels. Colour me unimpressed. Although I did finish another series, so that makes me happy. (And I did spend a lot of time studying the craft-and a new language-so it’s not like the entire year was a waste).
So, what’s next? Some real life stuff is changing for us, so that will effect how my publishing schedule shakes out. This is why I still haven’t announced any new releases.
I just deleted like seventeen paragraphs of this blog because it got too personal, but the gist of it is that last year was tough, and I had lots of times when I seriously thought I’d never finish another book. The reasons don’t matter. I’m just focusing on what I can do.
So, I’ve tentatively set myself a goal of writing a million words this year (works out at less than 3k words a day). I found a nifty little spreadsheet by Svenja that helps me keep track. (I chose the Agent Carter design because I have a weakness for
Enver Gjokaj a matte red lip). It’s a bit mad (’cause I’ll still have to edit those million words), but I’ve never actually kept track properly, so it’ll be interesting even when if I fail miserably.
My goals for the next twelve months are mostly to publish the little stockpile of Ava world stories I have going on (I added another one to my list of things to write yesterday. I have issues, and I really need to cut that shit out if I ever want to catch up), and to get back to my Cursed wolves. I’d love to work on a new trilogy that I’ve been sidelining for about four years now, but there aren’t enough months in a year for the amount of stories I end up wanting to do. But we’re all triers around here, so I’ll crack on with things I shouldn’t do anyway. 😉
