Welcome to a new year and I hope you are as enthusiastic as I am!
Even though I started planning for the New Year in September, I am always keen at the beginning of a year to get stuck in. I think it is the possibilities I see ahead.
This year I have a schedule set up for publishing which is both exciting and scary (already stuck in the back of my diary so I can ensure I’m on track). With the release of my first ebook last December I realised that the process, although lengthy, was much easier than I thought.
My main focus for this year is not just to get more books out there but ensure they are the best possible quality. I could pump out a lot of average words for you, but I want to provide my readers with great stories and that takes more work and time than average ones. But I’m ready for the challenge.
I’m not quite willing to share the schedule at this point because I’m moving at some point this year and I’m not sure when that will be. And when it does occur it is going to impact on my schedule.
My little break from blogging over the holidays was useful. It also turned into a break from all my writing which was not what I had intended but it appears to have been what I needed. I think I will schedule in the break at the end of this year and then it will be guilt free.
I spent time reading through my current work in progress to work on the gaps and there are quite a few. I had several moments of “Oh, where have you been?” for some characters and wanting to know more about others.
The free time also allowed me to do some thinking about what I would like to blog about and how often. Given my schedule for the year I am going to stick with once a week and see how that goes. I would rather provide something regularly than all over the place.
I am super keen for the year.
I have my schedules, my action plan and my time blocked out.
Now that I am refreshed from the break and so organised I am hoping on at least 2 hours first thing of a morning to write, before I go back to work. And then a bit more during the day once we have had our outing, or we are wanting some quiet time…
I would love to hear your plans for the year. Are you as enthusiastic for what you can achieve? What new writing goals have you set yourself this year?
