Writing Goals For 2014

I began my publishing career in 2012, self-publishing Adventure Hunters in 2012. During 2013, I learned a lot about self-publishing, reading, and writing. Although, in truth, you never stop learning. While I plan to learn more and hone my skills, I do have some specific goals for 2014.

I want to publish Adventure Hunters and The Super School Uniform through Mountain Springs House. AH will be edited, something I really should have done the first time around. It will sport a new cover and be better than the first edition. I’m excited about this, as it is my first novel and my first one to be published by a company.
The Super School Uniform is my first wholly original novel (Adventure Hunterswas adapted from an unproduced screenplay) and I will be more proud to have this one published. I conceived it as a novel, and it has been a pain in the butt to write. I have struggled with it more than I thought I ever would. When it sees the light of day, I feel my struggle with it will be over. It may or may not turn into a series. That depends on how well the story resonated with readers.
Another goal is to blog on a more regular basis. For that, I have looked for blogging prompts. I am hoping to manage my time better for blogging and I hoping I can stick with the weekly schedule I have envisioned.
My writing goals may not seem ambitious but I think it is better not to bite off more than I can chew. If I set a few specific small goals, I feel I have a better chance of achieving them. Of course, there is the year-long (life-long?) goal of learning more about writing and publishing.
As always, thanks for reading.
