Maybe this post is a bit late. Most people do this sort of thing right off the bat in January, right? Oh well. I did do a “resolutions” post near new year’s day, so let’s count that. And now, only a few weeks after the turn of the year, here are my writing goals and current projects for 2016:
Finish “Trust Me.” Finally. God I’ve been writing this story for years! I keep putting it down and working on other things. I’m afraid to disappoint readers with it, is what’s going on. See, it is sort-of a cop/criminal story, but it’s not really. So I am imagining all the reviews where people lament the lack of action and call it boring. And then I go back and forth with myself: Just add in more action! But I hate books like that. Ugh. I know, but most readers love that stuff. Do it for the readers! Do I really want readers who crave things I don’t like to write? Shouldn’t I just write what I enjoy and be grateful for the readers who love that, too? But the mortgage! The kids need braces! Be serious, girl…. And thus, the book has remained unwritten. But I have a deadline of Jan 30 for the draft and I WILL stick to that! Trust me. (get it? lol)
Finish revising “Secret Cravings.” This is the last in my erotic shorts series “Moon-Brier” (under my AC Bishop name) and I have stalled on revising it. I’d like to get it re-published sometime early February, and then release a bundle of all three stories shortly thereafter.
Begin drafting “The Six,” an erotic series I’ve been loosely planning for many months. At first I thought it would be m/f, but now I’m thinking I can make it a variety. Maybe if every book functions as a standalone, some books could be m/f and others m/m (and maybe I can even work a menage book in there! my favorite!) anyway that is my plan as of now. Plotting and story might change things, though. I would happily do the whole series m/m but I think maybe that is unrealistic, to have an entire group of friends where every one is gay or bi? I’ll have to think some more about this.
Write 2+ flash pieces for blog. I really enjoy writing flash fiction, and participating in flash fic blog hops is a great thing for me. It keeps me motivated and gives me good content for this sad old blog. So I’m going to keep my eyes open for flash hops and try to jump in on a few.
That is it! Seems like a lot less than other people do, doesn’t it? Well, I guess if I get it all done I can always add more 🙂 How about you? Any writing or reading goals? I’d love to hear from you in the comments ❤
