Well I looked back on 2018, so now it's time to look forward towards 2019. I am looking to make 2019 a great year, so I will be splitting this into two posts. This one about writing and the next one about everything else!
So as I said in my look back at 2018, this has been a year where I struggled with writing. Well I am looking to take care of that problem in 2019. Now that I have a set day job schedule and I have gotten used to it I think that I can schedule my writing work much better. I want to become more organized with my writing and make sure that I have enough time to write new material. This means I am going to schedule certain times for marketing and blogging, and leave the rest of my time for editing and new writing. That means that I am going to likely cut blogging back to two days a week most of the time, Mondays and Thursdays. I will still be active but will free up some time for fiction writing. And hey hopefully that will mean better blog content for you to read!
Now as for writing projects for 2019, well I have a long list! First I am proud to say that I already know of one flash fiction piece that will be printed in an anthology next year! And I have two other short stories out on submission as we speak, so fingers crossed. I hope to write at least 6-12 more short stories for anthologies in 2019. I really do enjoy writing short fiction and it allows me to explore different genres which I love. I also want to get back to writing and publishing more shorts of my Gods Behaving Badly series. I hope to get at least two novellas out this coming year. As for the rest of my writing, I want to focus on some longer works. I have plans to write a long novella/short novel romance focusing on a character with multiple sclerosis. I plan on finishing the sequel to my romantic fantasy Quest for Redemption, Quest for Self. I also have a time travel novel, Rivals Out of Time, that I hope to finish in 2019. And if not all of that is enough, I have a four book series about dragons and dragonbornes that I want to write and get at least the first two books out if possible in 2019. That is a lot I know, but you got dream big and push yourself if you want to grow and succeed.
