Time to set writing goals for 2015. This is something that my critique group does every year and I love reflecting back on the year to see what has or hasn't worked out.
Here were my goals for 2014:
Complete 2 full MS- CHECK- sorta. I completed one full MS and got one to 60K.
Complete 2 Novellas- HALF CHECK- I am partially done with one novella
Submit 3 of them and possibly all 4.- FAILED! 🙁
Attend a retreat and a workshop- CHECK
Create weekly time to focus on my writing that is uninterrupted-CHECK
I also wrote 3 short stories. Two I submitted to a magazine and was rejected, the other I self published.
What also happened to me in 2014 that isn't reflected in these goals is that the MS I had queried in December of 2013 sold and was published August 18, 2014. Doing edits for THE GIRL HE KNOWS ate into some of the writing time I had but I'm not complaining.
I mean- HELLO- I was PUBLISHED in 2014!!! (BTW: it's on sale for the month of January)
So what will 2015 as a writer look like for me, I wonder? Here's my plan-
1. Currently, I have one book out waiting for a yay or a nay.I'm publishing that this year for sure.
2. Finished 1 MS and then edit (see #1) two complete MS
