Happy New Year!!! Wishing you all success and happiness this year.
I went through my resolutions of last year and the only one I managed to do was to move out of my last apartment. So my writing goals died a violent death last year. Even Nanowrimo lasted about a week for me before I started to have other health problems.
I’ve been thinking about why my writing didn’t go well last year. I can blame a number of experiences of last year including a couple deaths of people close to me or I can blame my health and fatigue, or even the dying of my computer, but I won’t.
Today, I think my main goal is to write every day at least 250-500 words. My second resolution is to write a series, which means more than three books in the same world. I have three stories that have been bugging me. They are in a world of violent change when two dimensions are thrown together due to the Hadron Collider research. The world that is taking over our industrial world is an agrarian world of magic. I guess that I am writing about the clash between cultures. And yes, hybrids.
Sarah A. Hoyt wrote a post Welcome to the Year of Go Big or Go Home. If you are another writer, she has had an epiphany about indie publishing. I am going to take her advice. It is to write series of short books in the same world. Indie publishing is now the pulp fiction of publishing. I think that is a good thing.
Plus I like the thought of writing pulp fiction. I read a lot of it growing up. So I will start with small goals and hope that my health problems will not interfere in what I am trying to do this year.
So make your goals and have fun this year. That’s what I’m going to do.
