WiP Wednesday 1/12/14-1/18/14: Goals Update

Another week of the month, gone. How are your WiPs going?

Mine are going swimmingly. As are my 2014 Writing Goals

Goal #2 states to finish my Woven rewrite by the end of February at the latest. Well, when I wrote that goal I didn’t realize just how close to the end I was. Or how smoothly the last bit would go.

I officially finished the rewrite last Friday. It’s been sent off to a trusted beta for critique and I’m well on my way to meeting my goals for the year.

WiP Wednesday: A Goals Update

After feverishly writing all last week (some days more feverish than others), I succeeded in accomplishing goal #1 for the year.

Post with my 2014 Writing Goals and Hopes

Goal #1 was to finish the superhero book by mid-January. Well, by my calculation mid-January hit today.

And I officially wrote “The End” on draft one of the novella on Saturday. The book is rough and would need a lot of editing. I’m still trying to determine the relative futility of editing and polishing the book.

You may have seen my Tumblr posts or Twitter posts about wanting to cry on Saturday night. It was in relation to a book review I read on a geeky news site I follow. One about people with super powers. One about people with superpowers eerily like mine.

A book which I had not heard of let alone read before Saturday night.

So, goal #1 accomplished and onward toward accomplishing goal #2.

How are your WiPs going?

2014 Goals and Hopes — January 1, 2014

2014 Goals and Hopes

Happy New Year everyone!

I seem to recall not setting any goals this time last year. That’s probably why it feels so much like this last year was without accomplishment.


1- Finish the superhero book before mid-January
2- Finish my Woven rewrite before February’s end at latest
3- Edit Woven to its most polished by mid-April
4- Elevator pitch, query, and synopsis for Woven by mid-April
5- Write at least one other book this year
6- Edit at least one other book this year
