My writing buddy Deborah @ Road of a Writer posted about her writing dreams for the new year… and I liked that she called them that. Goals and resolutions can be big and scary, and they don’t really leave room for life to happen or plans to change. Dreams, however, dreams are flexible. Dreams are sparkly and enticing, but there’s no guilt or feeling overwhelmed by not seeing them come true in a set time or manner.
So what are my writing dreams for this coming year?
I’m dreaming BIG, my friends.
First of all, I want to publish Minstrel’s Call. And I am SO CLOSE, dear Reader. “Very close now!” (said in my best Smeagol impersonation). I have some BIG news about that coming in the very near future…
Then I have some serious writing to do. Because my HUGE goal for the year is to draft books 3-5 of the Turrim Archive. Yes, you read that correctly. I am planning on trying to write THREE ENTIRE NOVELS in a single year! Can I do it? Probably not. But that’s why they call it dreaming…
(Yes, Deborah, that’s right, I’m not just stealing your post idea, but even your gifs… but this one is just so perfect, I couldn’t resist – also, it’s one my family quotes a ton, so I figured they’d enjoy seeing it)
That’s about all I can handle as far as epic dreams.
I also hope to continue writing fun blog posts that you all enjoy, and here on the blog, I am dreaming about February is Fantasy month and the third annual Silmarillion Awards.
I’m dreaming about finally taking some time to polish up my Cinderella retelling, and get that ready for publishing.
I’m dreaming about maybe writing a couple more very short stories for my monthly newsletters.
One other thing, while I’m dreaming about the year to come, is that I really want to go to Realm Makers this year. Been talking to my husband about that one and we are going to try to make it…. there’s still a lot up in the air right now about this summer, but I’m hoping!!!!
What are some of your writing dreams for 2018?
