Hey ladies! looks like you’re having some adventures over the holidays. I just caught up with the thread – been awol, but I think I’m back to normal life now.
I gave myself all of Nov & Dec to put my writing first. And I did. I absolutely did – I shoved everything else off my plate.
But now that it’s 2019, writing has to go back down to #4 or #5 on my list of priorities… Which means I’m back to writing only on Sundays.
Good news: I finished not only rewriting my book from scratch, but also managed to finish two rounds of edits! Woot! This weekend I’m hoping to do the last edits after my friend gives me her feedback, and then… I’ll be sending off queries in the second half of January!
I’m pretty excited.
My goal for 2019 is to kick this story out of the nest to see how it does in the real world. I’m going to submit to about 30 agents, and if it gets picked up, great. If not, then I’m putting it away. Indefinitely. No more piddling about with the same story forever.
In the meantime, I’m outlining a new story about a kid who wakes up on his 16th birthday and can see monsters. I hope to have a first discovery draft of that done by this summer.
Those are my writing plans for 2019! Oh yeah, finish the first discovery draft of Dark Star, which I am STILL posting (at a snail’s pace, to the chagrin of my readers…).
What are your writing plans for 2019???
