I reviewed my 2016 writing goals and set goals for 2017. I enjoyed some victories and accomplishments last year. My first novella – Dream Glasses is available as a Kindle Book. I’m still working on the print version.
I met three other woman dedicated to their writing. Their friendship and support as we met together has blessed me. It is my hope we will continue to meet together.
This last year’s writing experiences taught me some things.
I recognize I had too many divergent goals, which caused me to loose focus and sometimes I did nothing. This translated to tasks not accomplished.
2017 goals are not so broad and open-ended. I have specific goals related to specific writing projects.
I found my ‘writing location’ within the house where I can sit and write. Later in the year, I wrote more regularly.
I analyzed what worked with writing Dream Glasses and what things slowed me down. I’ve learned much about formatting, styles, sections and images.
I transitioned my writing to Scrivener to allow me to keep all related writing, research, and character lists related to a piece in one place, while fully expecting the final work may still take place in MS WORD.
I’m excited about what 2017 brings.
I expect the print version of Dream Glasses to be available soon. (For those of you following this blog site, last year I thought the name of my book would be The Madeleine. That changed to Dream Glasses.)
I’ve started working on the sequel. No name yet.
I’ve got more research ahead of me to make the story locations as real as Paris has been to my readers.
I’m working on a collection of short stories and still working on a children’s book.
Have you set your writing goals for the new year? …and are you willing to share them?
