Mid-Year Writing Goal Update

First things first - if you are interested, there is a chance to win a free e-copy of The Best Man over at Reviews by Jessewave. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment. Drawing is in about 24 hours, so don't wait!

Now that you've finished entering for a copy of my book, onward!

At the beginning of the year, I laid out my writing goals in this blog entry. Of course, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and things change, etc. So, I like to revisit my goals around mid-year and update them. So, here are my revised goals:

  1. Get an agent. Self-explanatory.
  2. Minimum of 6 contracts. Also self-explanatory.
    1. The Best Man
    2. Camera Shy
    3. Cover Me

  3. Top Bastian Koehler. In other words, write a book that causes Scarlett to exclaim, "Oh my God! He just PWNED Bastian!" (Bastian being the male main character of With The Band, holding strong as Scarlett's favorite of all of my boys since April 2009)
  4. Step out of my genre...twice. At least two books this year will be outside of my usual genre, erotic romance. I've got one literary novel in the offing, but I intend to write at least two non-romances/non-erotica novels.
  5. One first draft per month.
    1. January - fail
    2. February - Cover Me
    3. March - fail
    4. April - fail
    5. May - Light Switch; Rain
  6. Get 5 more novels out on submission (after June 11)
  7. Minimum 60,000 words a month (after June)

  1. Wow, those are HUGE goals.

    Pathetically my only goal is to have one novel on submission by the end of the year.
