So, I’m figuring these out as I write this. Not the way I’d recommend setting goals, but I don’t want to go into February without a plan.
Today I submitted the first 3,000 words of my novel to Futurescapes workshop. I was thrilled to be accepted and am both excited and nervous about workshopping my novel in March. My main goal this year is to have my novel ready to submit by June 1st.
Secondary goals are:
Write a poem a day in April for National Poetry Month.
Write, revise, and submit 12 new flash or short stories this year.
Revise and submit any previous stories that are worth developing.
Read 20 books. I’ve reduced this goal from previous years due to the hours of reading I do each week for Flash Fiction Online.
Still aiming for 100 rejections, and a handful of acceptances would be nice, as well. 🙂
Think that’ll do it for my writing life this year. Wishing everyone a productive and peaceful 2021!
