Happy New Year: my Writerly Goals for 2015

new year

2014 is coming to an end, and I’m beginning to look towards 2015. I have 5 big goals for myself this year…and hey you know it looks a to-do list. I love to-do lists.

1) Revise The Light Side of the Moon.

Yep, that’s right, I got information from my editor at 48Fourteen and there will be another revision–though this one is not as major as the last one. Hopefully, the novel is still on track to be published in 2015, but ultimately, that’s not my decision. What I do know is this revision will take all of January. Maybe February too.

2) Finish the third draft and find a publisher for The Grove.

3) Write 12 short stories.
That’s right, one short story a month. I’m not saying they are going to be good enough for publication though I certainly hope they will be. My goal is to focus on writing smaller tight works after this massive shit storm entitled The Light Side of the Moon.

4) Finish a first draft of Other Systems #3.
This story is focused upon Kipos and her three moons after the humans are integrated into Kiposian society. I’ve a loose outline and about 70 pages of scenes, but nothing put together.

5) Attend at least Five Conferences where I am speaking or tabling.
I’ve signed up for a over five and even have a few confirmations for the winter events.

  • RustyCon (Speaker) January
  • RadCon (Speaker) February
  • More will be announced as they are confirmed….

So there you have it. These are my writing goals for 2015, what are yours?
