January WIP

04 Jan

It’s been a while since I’ve popped back up in here on my corner of WordPress. I started a new job a few months back, but with the new year, I’m making resolutions to improve my writing, blogging, and reading habits. I hope everyone else is well and doing the same!

For reading, I’m taking the Goodreads Challenge (as you can see on the sidebar), while I have plenty of posts planned for this blog for the new year. For writing, I’m going to focus on actually finishing at least the first drafts of a couple of novels. My goal is to have at least three first drafts finished by this year, if not more.

The three stories I’m contemplating at the moment are tentatively titled Colorless, Ripple Effect, and Shifter’s War. Of course, depending on my whims, new stories may pop up, but three first drafts are my goal for the year.

I’m fabulous at starting stories. Finishing them is another thing entirely. I have ideas as to how each story will end… I just need to write them. My attention span isn’t the best at focusing on novels long-term like that. To rectify that bad habit, I’ll be keeping track of how many words I write on the three stories and post them up at the end of every month to publicly celebrate or shame my progress.

I love to write. I want to be able to call myself a writer and, to do that, I need to finish my writing projects. This is going to be the year where I will unravel that bad habit like a tangled yarn ball to crochet it into a good habit.

How are your writing resolutions?

    You are a writer regardless of finished projects.

    I agree with Rachel. You’re a writer.

    That said, I have several different projects I’m going to be working on. We’ll see how they all go. 😉
