I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions but, over the past few years, I have set myself a creative challenge or goal for the coming year.
The only problem with the goals that I’ve set for the past three years is that they have been ongoing. These creative goals have so far resulted in two blog pages, two (almost three) book babies and a new rock star Instagram/Twitter fan page. My “free” time is diminishing rapidly!
This year, for the sake of my sanity, I’m going to keep it simple.
Completing, editing and publishing Book Baby 3, aka Bonded Souls, is my primary goal but, if all goes to plan, it should be accomplished by Spring.
That leaves me eight or nine months to fill…..drums fingers as she thinks…..takes a deep breath.
My second goal is to write the first draft of a new novel by the end of the year. GULP!
Now, before fans of a certain Jake Power get their hopes up, it won’t be a Silver Lake book. Also for the sake of my sanity, I need a break from all things Silver Lake however……I’m not ruling out an overlap between the new novel and some of the characters from the Silver Lake tales. I’ve a couple of ideas floating around so we’ll see where they lead to.
On the Book Baby 3 front, editing and proofreading is underway and I’ve started my battle of wills with Photoshop, as I work on the cover design. I’m not quite ready to reveal it to the world just yet but let’s just say my book baby is no longer totally naked.
Well, the clock’s ticking, so, if I’m to meet these goals, I’d better get cracking.
What are your goals or challenges or resolutions for 2017?
