Goals and Action Plans



HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I'm not one to make New Year's Resolutions, but I do have dreams and plans for 2014. Here's the short list:

1.  Finish The Scent of Fear Blog Tour.

2.  Do guest posts/author interviews to highlight all my books.

3.  Contact some organizations that might be interested in my genre.

4.  Write the third book in the trilogy, Out of the Mist.

5.  Participate in a series my publisher has in the works for 2014.

It's wonderful to have goals, but I'm also considering the steps I need to take to reach them. I have folders for each project to keep everything organized. Scheduling time for implementing my plans is also a big part of making them happen.

What are your writing/reading goals for 2014?  What kind of action steps are you taking to fulfill your dreams?

HI Susan,

All the best with your goals for 2014. I'm sure you'll hit all your targets.

My short term goal is to complete the edits on one book, and to finish another one already started, by June 2014. I'm only looking at the first half of the year. More manageable that way. :)

Thanks, Dotti! Yes, breaking things into little bites makes them easier to digest. :)

Good luck with your goals, Susan. I think if you accomplish half of them, it's still an impressive list of accomplished goals!

Keep us posted on book #3. This is an exciting time for you!

Be well.

Thanks, Janette Dolores, for the encouragement. The Scent of Fear blog tour ends January 16th, so I'll be able to cross that one off my list.

Book #3 is at 20,000 words. :)
