Round 4 2015 starts today, and I have goals!
Last round went pretty well, but there were some unexpected snags. This go-around, I’d like to finish the year strong.
Here they are:
~Finish Fireborn (I’m within 5k-10k to the end)
~5k more on Covenant
~Barring unforeseen craziness, I’d like to participate in NaNoWriMo with a modified goal of 30k (because my wrists can’t take 50k). Need to decide on a project, Survivor Rewrite or Ever Touched. Both need to be written, and there are compelling reasons for working on both but…just. can’t. decide!
~Shoot test roll of 35mm film and develop
~15 minutes of physical activity (anything that gets me out of my chair counts: cleaning, walking, straightening, breaks from writing, etc) 3 times per week
I’m going to stop there, because I don’t want to overwhelm myself. My brain tends to lock up and refuse to do anything if I do that. I may add to these if I find things are going well, or subtract/modify them.
Now, if i get any freelance editing jobs within this time period, those are the priority. I hope to be able to juggle writing and freelance work better, though. Let the madness begin!

Will be doing NaNoWriMo too! I actually have a story started, first time ever. Kinda excited!!!
I think you will enjoy Nano, Cindy!
Perhaps you could draw a NaNo project out of a hat and decide that way. 😉
I also have a bad habit of trying to overwhelm myself. I think the goals you’ve chosen are very sensible.
Emily – There’s an idea. 😉 Thanks, I was hoping I wasn’t deluding myself on the goals.
I’m late. Sounds like you got a plan, Don’t let NaNo stomp on your feet. I will be participating WriMo our on and off moody sweet heart. :O 😛
Sending you some of the writing mojo .
Late is okay, mrbkoostachin! Thanks for the encouragement and mojo!
I have the same trouble as you — just can’t decide what to do for NaNo! Type up last year’s NaNo story and add to it? Edit one of the pending novels? Or draft 50K on an entirely new story……. The last is tempting because of the squirrel!shiny new idea! drafting high, but…I really should be editing.
Love that you’re developing real film — I’ve always wanted to try that! Can’t wait for updates 🙂
Hi Denizb33! I’m glad I’m not the only one with that problem! As for developing film, it has been far too long since i did that! I’ll keep this blog updated as to what I’m doing. 🙂 Developing film is tough but anyone can learn with enough practice. 😉
There are still folks who use actual film?! LOL. Sounds like you have a good list of goals. I’m not doing NaNo this year, myself, as I need to focus on revising and preparing my previous two years’ drafts for publication. Good luck with all your projects!
Starcatdreamer – Yep, I use film! I’m very old school about my photography. Not doing Nano makes sense b/c of your revision. Last year I was in the same boat. But I promised myself I would participate this year, so that’s what I’m doing. 😉
