January Goals

Last time I posted on the goals was back in June. Oops. I’m thinking I might need to update on a different day of the week. I felt like the weekly goals kept me going in the right direction, so here is to trying it again.

To start off, let’s look at the unfinished goals I posted back in June:

Goal: Finish book description for Tsunami Found.

Update: Partially done.

Goal: Finish brainstorming of book 3 of new shiny.

Update: Partially done. The exciting part of this is that not only is that outline almost done, but I’m half-way done writing the first draft of book 1. Yay!

Goal 4: Forward Motion for Writers site upgrade project: Finish transferring all permanent pages to the new CMS.

Update: DONE! YES! This was a huge project, but the transfer from the old forum to the new setup is done. That includes all the old user accounts and forum posts. Being successful in saving those years worth of posts to the forum makes me so happy. Live writer chat is also active at FM, and it’s great to see some of the old users filtering back.

Forward Motion for Writers

I’m still sorting the goals for this coming year. Which makes the first goal for the month easy.

Goal: Finish year business plan

Goal: Finish book description for Tsunami Found.

Goal: Finish brainstorming of book 3 of new shiny.

Goal: 4000 words on first draft of book 1 of new shiny

I don’t want to overload myself as there are a lot of doctor appointments over the next 7 days, so we’ll leave it at that.

I hope everyone is having a good start of the new year!

Patron $1 Level Perks

It took a while, but the Patron/Patreon portion of the website is finally open for business! To start off with, how about a review of some of the Pledge $1 rewards?

Writing Prompts: I love writing prompts. I’ve done them several times for short stories, with some of those short stories turning into novels, and even series. The first Redpoint One science fiction romance book “Coffee Cup Dreams” is a prime example. So much for a short story. So much for only one novel! The series currently has 3 books in it, and there is the possibility of 3 more sometime in the future. If anyone uses any of these, I would love to hear about it.

Writing Advice: Have a question? Patrons (tier 1 or above) have priority answers!
