I can’t believe 2012 is here. Seems unreal, and I’m not sure why. The end of the world? Or perhaps the start of something big?
I have been more organized with my writing lately by keeping better track of my submissions, rejections, acceptances, publishing goals, WIP, word count, etc. Last year, I wrote around 185,000 words. It sounds like a lot, but when I look at what I’ve pushed out into the market, I know I can and need to do better if I want my writing to transcend the ‘hobby’ label. I am making the necessary changes to better my craft, which has given me an extra burst of motivation.
I have two books in progress, “Wicked Tempest” and “Girl Gone.” “Wicked Tempest” is the sequel to “Grave Echoes,” and hopefully I can finish it this year. It will also be around 95K. “Girl Gone” is my werewolf novella. I’ve finished the first draft, and because it will only be around 30K, I plan on publishing that this year too, along with several short stories (W1S1-Weekly).
Good luck with your writing goals.
