New Year, New Goals

We’ve entered the new year with the usual fanfare. I had a fantastic time with my family. My kids had a blast staying up late, banging pots and pans, noisemakers, the works. It was fun!

November and December were pretty erratic for writing. It usually ended up as large chunks of writing or no writing. I topped out at 205,801 words. That’s 17,701 words over the goal and 9.41% increase. I’ll count that in the win category as far as pure output goes.

I’m not one for setting resolutions. Goals on the other hand work pretty well for me. Unfortunately, my next goal is much harder to quantify than mere word count.

I need to edit! Producing all those words is fantastic, but if I’m going to make a career of this, there needs to be the other half of the process. So I’m not sure how exactly I will quantify this goal. Just need to dig in and get to work. I’m also going to set a goal of one page of new fiction per day.

So that’s that. If all goes as planned, I’ll have at least one novel published through Amazon at the end of the year.
