My Goals for 2013

Not resolutions. I don’t make those, because I actually hope to achieve these!

There are a few big tasks that I will attempt this year:

  • I’ve posted about this a few times, but chronic fatigue has stopped me from getting it done: get my 3 other versions of Hunters’ Inc. done.
  • When the 3 other versions are done, I’ll make a pitch for a fourth in Supers, since that also has 3rd-party stuff allowed.
  • When those are in I have a sequel book to pitch. I already wrote it; my former publisher closed down before we could look at it.
  • I have a short story to revise and try as a Kindle single.
  • This one will be my biggest challenge / adventure for the year: to start a novel series. I have the characters and premise written out  now I need the plot and then have to write the book(s).

It’s only the 1st day of the year, and I already have it mapped out!

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions (I’d rather get things done), and I don’t buy into the Mayan Apocalypse… I just wanted to state these things now.

As far as results go, 2023 wasn’t as bad for me as 2011 was, but I’m hoping 2013 will be even better.

I had one thing published this year. I’ll have more out in 2013, including hopefully my first published novels on the Kindle (fiction, not non-).

I also have my long-overdue fanzine to get started again, and my letter writing for other zines to get restarted.

Finally, 2013 will be my tenth calendar year on NaNoWriMo. I haven’t had a success at it since 2006. I hope to change that.

To superstitious people 13 is unlucky. May it not be so for me!
