Now that Christmas is over many of us are turning our attention to new year goals. When I discovered the Writing Resolutions Blog Hop hosted by 1st Books I decided to write this post and share what I want to do.
Right now I am in promotion mode. This blog is new and I also released a new book, “Must Love Sandwiches“. Over the holidays, when I have the time to get online, I’ve been setting up new social media accounts and working at getting the word out about my new “babies” (blog and book). I have always loved foodie fiction and I am really excited about the concept I have come up with: writing many different sizes of stories within a series. Now I just need to let readers know about it! To help do that I will be participating in some recipe memes, adding bonus stories and recipes to the website and just getting out and about on the internet.
As far as writing goes, I am about a quarter of the way done with the next volume in The Bartonville Series. That volume will have two novelettes as well as some other shorter stories. After that I will be moving onto the first volume of my next, as yet untitled, foodie fiction series. I definitely want to get those two books released in 2013, hopefully even more! I will also revisit my 6:1 Series and get the third volume, “Jealousy”, released. I only have a bit of writing and some editing to do on that ebook.
So those are my writing goals for 2013. I’m hoping to also participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for the first time. I will be a rebel by writing several smaller stories to reach the 50,000 word goal, but I still want to know what it is like to churn out that many words in one month.
What are your goals, writing or otherwise, for 2013?
