Good day, Sirs and Madams,
the other day I was musing: Do you guys do writing resolutions? As in "Things I want to change about my writing behaviour within the next year"?
I know a few of us do Post-Mortems, after the fact reports on what worked and what didn't. But I thought it funny to ask you about what your goals are for next year.
A Pre-Mortem if you will.
No need to come back to them next december or strictly adhere to them but every once in a while I like to sit down, make a grandiose plan and try to stick to it.
So here are my serial-writing goals for 2017.
1. Finish writing a book.
Make a few more drafts of my NaNo-Novel, get it up to about 200 pages, edit the everliving stupid out of it. That doesn't necessarily entail publishing it, though. I just want to finish it in a way I'm satisfied with it and could either send it in or use it as a hook for patreon or something. I want to prove to myself that I can actually stick to this one project and rework it into something better.
2. Write something every day.
I nearly did that this year, too. Did abut 7 months of writing every day, then had a minor problem and stumbled. This year I'm going all the way. Pretty sure of that.
3. Traditionally publish something.
I love my website, gets me going and all that. But I want to see what other ways there are. So I'll try and do some small competition or call or something.
Feel free to torture me about them in eleven months when I'm busy doing anything but.
What are yours?
