Well, 2015 is nearly over. I got some of my goals done and others are a far cry from being accomplished. It’s nearly time to start thinking about next year’s goals but before that, two more check-ins remain.
Attend a writer’s workshop
Done. Finished. Kaput. I am considering applying to the Clarion Workshop although at the very earliest in 2017. I don’t think I could get as much out of it next year as I would if I had some time to take in the lessons learned from Viable Paradise.
Win Writers of the Future
- Revise. (In Progress)
Get my second novel to the submission stage
My plan for NaNoWriMo fell apart on the fourth day when I realized what the problem was with my manuscript. Unfortunately, the same problem more or less mandated that I start over from the concept level. Which is what I’ve been doing for most of November. Which is what I’m still doing.
- Make a new outline. (In progress)
- Make people read it.
- Edit some more.
Get an agent
I’ve been neglecting my search for an agent while pretending to be busy creating new fiction. Well, to be fair, I’ve done some of that as well. I should probably do some more on this front as well before the end of the year.
- Make a new list
- Write query letters
- Send query letters
