Don’t think I ever announced that I completed STORYSTORM in January. By the end of the 31 days, I had 31 ideas to reconsider and figure out which ones I would work on this year. Some of the most promising are juvenile or cozy mysteries, a few new Beatrice and Charlotte adventures, and an Easter story.
Even though it’s early, I’ll use this time to review my writing goals.
GOAL 1: Submit Clever Tom to agents
Deadline on this was February 15, so I didn’t make it. Still a top priority on my list. Might be able to research a couple of agents this month.
GOAL 2: Participate in STORYSTORM
Done and won!!!!
GOAL 3: Blog twice a week on all four blogs
Not doing too badly on this. Until we went on vacation mid-February I was staying on top of this. I’m already set to blog at all four blogs this week.
GOAL 4: Guest blog at least once a quarter
I need to get this in soon. I guest blogged in December 2017, but not so far this year.
GOAL 5: Contribute to Guardian Angel Kids this year
I’m considering a contribution to the August, September, October or December issues.
GOAL 6: Finish Amelia’s Mission and get it ready for submission
I’m into the middle of Chapter 18 now. I’ve been using writing group time to move the story along. In addition, while we were away, I wrote an emotional scene that will change Amelia’s life.
Here’s looking forward to the next quarter of 2018 and what I can accomplish. Feel free to share some of your goals with us. We would love to hear them.
