Lou’s Writing Goals for 2014

Well, I’m trying to restrain my over ambitious approach to setting goals and be more measured in my plans.

My overall aims (or what I call ‘dreams’) for the year 2014 are to:

  1. Self Publish ‘The Duke’s Shadow’ – which I hope to have done before my 50th year is out (February) but not holding my breath – as long as I get it done by end of June. I’ve just found a very reasonably priced copy editor who is going to go through the whole ms and check for errors etc. which has given me a bit more confidence. Now I just need to get the cover sorted…
  2. Complete rewrite of ‘Wolf Moon’ – my NaNo 2013 project.  Hope to have completed this by the end of 2014, given how long it took me with The Duke!
  3. Continue to submit Penny and George scenes (‘The Good Life’) – for feedback on Writers Abroad and would like to start preparation for self publishing depending on how number 1 goes!
  4. Write regularly every week (target of 500 words per session), which I’ve already started and could be anything, a sort of muse a day… kind of thing
  5. Take part in the NaNo 2014 Challenge – hopefully inspired by something written in 4 but may well visit other projects…

Now I must take a deep breath and get down to it….
