I’m decent at making goals and sticking to them (yes, I failed NaNoWriMo…no fair reminding me. I was caught in the middle of a move from one house to another, remember?), so long as I make them realistic; challenging, yes, but there’s no sense in filling my anxiety-filled life with more of the same on the off chance that I’ll accomplish an unrealistic goal. A cookie is still a cookie when I'm deserving of it, so let's be real.
My anthology goal: To be out before spring. I’m shooting for March. It’s my first book so I may find I have unrealistic expectations concerning that. We’ll see. During the move I ran across four stories that had nearly 20 years of dust settled on them. I’ve been going through them, salvaging them, and giving them a final draft. I believe at least two of them will make the cut; however, I have somehow missed some important pages of one of the stories and I may need to do an extensive re-write if I’m to keep it.
How about you guys? Any writing/reading goals set for the year?
New Update: Some exciting things on the horizon but I'll have to save that for another time.
