Hello all!

For the first post on the new blog for 2018, it seems appropriate to talk about 2018 goals! I’ve got a lot of them so I’ll need to get busy!

I’ve already tweeted about my writing, reading, and personal goals a few times on Twitter, but to reiterate, here are my goals for 2018:

 

Writing Goals

-Have Masks part 2 and 3 novellas ready and submitted to LT3 by end of January.

-Have Into the Deep (my pirate and merman story) ready to submit by April.

-Write a new novel in April for Camp NaNoWriMo (this will probably be a dragon fantasy story that I have complete notes for).

-Between May and November, I have a gap, which I’ll probably be using for edits if my submissions get accepted, and I may also write a short story/novella during that time frame. I’ll also be working on replanning the novel I want to write in November, All That Remains.

-Write a new novel in November during NaNoWriMo (paranormal novel All That Remains).

-Write more blog posts and build up my new website, Fiction Cove! I’ll probably shoot for one blog post a week. This goal is a pretty loose one.

-Lastly I’m taking this on the end because it depends on what happens this year, but I’d like to find a home for my short/novella, Leo, which is a retelling of Pinocchio.

 

Reading Goals

-Read one book a week (so 52 books). I’ll be focusing on reading more diverse books!

 

Personal Goals

-Exercise more. I’m thinking 30 minutes a day on my gazelle.

-Get my driver’s license. We won’t say how old I am and don’t have it…

-Save money (another loose goal).

 

So, what are your goals for this year? Let me know in the comments!
