Okay, now that I've gotten a little more organized from the holidays and have set some deadlines and goals for the year, I am going to post them as a way of motivating me to meet them more and hold myself accountable. So far with my new little schedule I've been doing pretty good. Let's hope I keep this up!
Here are my 2016 Deadlines, so far. Some of them aren't set that are further in the year, so I'll change some of it later on depending on how things go in the first 6 months of 2016.
As some of you may know, I'm still editing my first completed book BRING ME TO LIFE, otherwise known as BMTL. I really need to get my butt on finishing the 2nd draft and go through more edits of it until it's ready to send off to agents. For some reason I have worked good on it and then stopped working on it for months at a time just to come back and get back on a good schedule. Let's hope this is the last of it and I work through until the end!
I'm also working on editing both of my completed rough drafts at once. BMTL and my 2015 NaNoWriMo novel, working title of SECOND CHANCE, or just known as SD.
Currently I'd like to finish the 2nd drafts of both BMTL and SD by April 3rd. In March I'd like to start prepping my next book with the plan of beginning it on April 1st for Camp NaNoWriMo. I haven't set a word count goal for April yet, nor have I figured out which of my ideas I'd like to work on during this month for Camp NaNo.
Depending on how the first draft goes on my new WIP I'll start in April, I'd like to have it finished by the end of July. I'll begin edits on it in September, hopefully, and also be working on final edits of BMTL and SD between April and September with the hopes of beginning to query in October. And, of course, I'll be prepping for my November novel for NaNoWriMo in October as well.
So far that's my schedule and deadline! I have monthly and weekly goals, as well. I'm going to get back to work and try to keep my blog updated and come up with some fun posts soon! And, of course, I'll be posting my February goals at the end of this week.
What are your 2016 goals/deadlines? :)
