Meeting Goals

I love writing historic Steampunk fantasy and that's where I really want to concentrate my efforts.  That's why I have two series in the works (the first book of one trilogy has already been picked up by Eternal Press).


That said, I have a few other deadlines to meet too and I may just implode in the near future.  ;)

For now, I'm taking it one goal at a time.  My current goal?  To complete my NaNoWriMo novel this week and set it aside for revisions later.  As far as I'm concerned, that's what a fresh NaNo effort is - just a first draft.

Goals through the end of the year include... Hoo, boy!  Completing two other novel-length first drafts, completing final revisions on one story (and getting that out and into the submission process before the end of this month), first-pass edits on a short-story/novella, and revisiting a non-fiction book that I have in the works.

Thank goodness writing is my day job!

So, as 2011 draws to a close, what are your current goals?  They can be anything - no need to limit yourself to writing.

  1. I'd like to get the first deaft of my new project done and complete final edits on the other manuscript. But considering that I have to be back at the office on Thursday and the amount of birthdays and celebrations to follow, this might be quite a challenge.

    Wait... you already finished your NaNo project?? °°

  2. That sounds like a good idea, Diandra... I bet you can get those done before the end of the year, even with work, birthdays and holidays! Sending you positive energy. ;)

    My NaNo is so close to done, that I'm stepping back and relaxing on it now. Time to make something else a priority and put NaNo on the back burner. I'll do maybe 1,000 words a day on it. Maybe more. LOL
