Writing Resolutions

   With New Years come and gone I have yet to set a resolution. I was told once that you shouldn't set a bunch of goals all at once for yourself because you spread yourself too thin trying to accomplish all those new things. Rather, set a goal to focus on for a few months then add another and another a few later. . .you get the idea. I like it.
   So goal for Jan-March 1st: revise Damnation. Focus and be brutally honest with what works. Strengthening the prose, plot and emotion. Emotion is hard for me, anyone else? No? *looks around* No? Okay. :)
    March through June I want to FINALLY finish a book I've been doing bits and pieces on for 6 years! That's as far as I've plotted out so far, I'm hoping the June-Sept 1st goal will be more obvious as I get closer.
   What about you? How do you set your writing goals? What are you working on?

Emotion is hard for me too. I'm revising a novel this month for an editor who is interested. I don't know if I'll get it one in time, but after I finish this revision and send it in to the editor I plan to start querying another novel that's done and finishing revising another one I'm working on. After that, who knows? Maybe I'll sell a novel and start revising that! That's what I hope anyway.

I want to start a steampunk novel.

I want to finally get feedback on my WIP. I have a critique group, after a year of searching, so maybe my goal will be possible at last. :)

I've finished my latest book and while I find beta readers for it, I'm plotting out Hostage Heart. I would like to have it written by the end of the year. With my purchase of Dragon Naturally speaking, we'll see if that will improve my productivity. It should certainly help on my spelling. melva
