Overall Yearly Goal: To finish this past year's NaNo Novel and edit the first draft by this year's NaNo so that I can be ready to write the first 50K of the sequel in November. I want to be at least halfway through the second story by the start of the year. That is not that difficult of a goal. Seriously it isn't. I'm almost finished with the first book, but the editing process.....well, it would be my first, if I'm being honest. Usually, when I am editing something, it is not my own stuff. Apparently, I am quite good at editing, though I can be really harsh. I lost a friend over that. I warned her. So, we will see how it goes.
My January goal: Since we are early enough in the month, my writing goal is to write at least 15k on my unfinished NaNo story by the end of the month. My crochet goal is to be at least halfway done with the blanket. It is a never ending granny square, aka granny squares in a spiral pattern. It is crazy easy and builds up quickly because I am using five colors. I love the colors. They are so pretty.
My February Goal: Well, that will come next month.....we will see how far I get this month.
So that is where I am now. I think I will make myself an itinerary so that I can pay attention to both of my Creative Pursuits. Like a said, I want to really focus on writing this year. I would, eventually, like to be published. It is one of my goals in life. I'm not expecting to be the next Anne Rice or Stephen King, but just to have a novel out there, with my name on it.....that is a long held and never forgotten dream.
