it’s all about the goals, baby!
Hellooo! And Happy 2015!
It’s a new year, finally, and that means I get to start over. WOOT! I love starting over with new romance writing goals for the new year and 2015 is going to be simplified, clarified, and amplified.
Okay, I just threw in that last one because I liked the way it sounded.
Seriously though. My life has gotten super busy with increase responsibilities. Between helping out my parents, the kids, the husband, the day job and my new post as treasurer for my local RWA group, I’m going to be working hard to find the time to do what I love to do, and that’s WRITE ROMANCE.
But I’m determined to set my goals high, so here goes.
Here are my new goals for 2015!
- Publish book 2.5, Cassie’s backstory from just before Broken Mirror.
- Publish Broken Mirror, book three in the Tales of the Black Court.
- Re-brand and publish the three novellas in the Twisted Tales: Come Into the Woods series
- Write three more novellas for Twisted Tales Series and publish.
- Write fourth book in the Tales of the Black Court. (Would love to have this out and published by end of 2015, but realistically it’s looking like 2016. But I’m going to try!)
- Put all 6 Twisted Tales into an anthology. (This is also a bonus goal, but I think it’s doable!)
See? My theme this year is KISS (Keep It Simple Silly!)
Previous years I’ve had huge lists of goals. Romance writer and reader conferences I wanted to attend and writing classes I wanted to take. But I’ve had to really re-focus and streamline and this year I’m really focused on what I’m writing and getting my words out to you, the readers. This year it’s all about the romance, baby!
Twisted Tales is a huge focus for me because I have the rights back from my publisher and I want to get them back out into the world, but they need new covers and frankly new titles. While I love Little Red Riding Wolf, it ends up in the children’s section of the search engine, and that is not a good thing for a spicy romance novella!
I know that readers really enjoy those sexy shifter stories, so I’m planning on writing three more and putting them all into an anthology as well as make them available for sale individually.
If all goes as planned I’ll have NINE books out by the end of 2015. AMAZING!
The Tales of the Black Court are another huge focus and I can’t wait until the next one is out. Broken Mirror my biggest priority for 2015 and it is getting closer to publication every day!
KISS! That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it. Get the goals done one at a time and when that one’s done, move on to the next!
What are your goals for 2015? Are you using the KISS method of goal setting? Leave a comment and let me know. 🙂
