Like with the last two years, I don’t plan on setting a specific word count goal (I don’t plan on pushing myself to write 1 million words in 12 months ever again). I’m just hoping to be better than last year. If I do that, awesome! If health issues arise that make it so I can’t…. I guess I won’t get there.
Publishing:I have 8 books* planned for release this year. I might do more… I might do less. I guess it all depends. I’m on track for the first and third planned publications… but am a little behind on the second. So it’s going to be getting a lot more attention this first week of the year than other projects are.
* “Books” is the general term I use to encompass Novels, Novellas, Novelettes, and short stories/collections. At the moment, the break down is 3 novels and 5 novellas. I haven’t planned for any short stories—though I have one or two that might make an appearance depending on my editing time.
Reading:I’m going back in for—hopefully—another “100 books read” year. I’ve got a MASSIVE to-read pile (it’s getting dangerous. And I want to experience the stories that I’ve been toying with reading but haven’t made time for yet.
As I’ve said before, I read EVERYTHING. Seriously, go look at my GoodReads list if you don’t believe me. But I tend to get into genre binges. I’m hoping to make sure this year’s 100 books bounce around in the different genres.
Editing:Have I mentioned I’m still digging my way out of that million words from 2013? That pile is nowhere near as high as my TBR pile, but I definitely need to make time to clear up those books and consider what I’m going to do with them all.
Blogging:I’m really happy with where I’ve been blogging wise for the second half of this year, and my hope is to keep it up. We’ll see if I manage it. After all, it’s the lowest priority most days, but I figure if I can keep ahead and get posts sorted out when I have spare moments, I’ll be good. Fingers crossed.
