It's almost the end of the year... wow, I feel like this year went quickly! I felt like everything came too soon. It's time to wrap up my 2014 goals. I do goals every month, but I also have overall goals for the year. It's my "Things to Do" list, instead of resolutions.
Goals for 2014
Writing Goals –
“Somebody to Love”
* Complete revisions by June
* Send to critique partners
* Finish another round of revisions
“The Freaks/The Damned”
NaNoWriMo – November
* Get a tattoo
I self-published my novella on April 1st. Though it didn't do as well as I hoped, I'm still happy that my novella is out there to be read and that people have enjoyed reading it. :)
"Somebody to Love"
I had intentions of finally editing my NaNo novel from 2013, but I did not get a chance to do it. I did read through it in December and I see potential in the first draft, but it will need some serious editing next year.
"The Freaks/The Damned"
As much as I love my YA Urban Fantasy novels, I've decided not to write the final book in the trilogy yet and to shelf the books until I decide I want to rewrite the whole series, due to some issues that can't be fixed easily. I love the books enough to put them away for now.
NaNoWriMo novel - "Sweet Little Lies"
I finished my YA Contemporary Romance on November 20th and though I've plans to change a lot of it, I'm excited to have finished it!
|The little girl I nanny and me|
Though I didn't get all of my goals done this year, I did read 60 books, twenty more than my goal of 40! I'm very excited about that! I read some really wonderful books this year that I might have to reread next year. :) How did your overall goals for 2014 go? I'll be sharing my new goals for 2015 on Wednesday, so be sure to check back!
