Even though I only posted my 2015 goals last week, they were goals I came up with back in December of last year. I’ll be honest, some of them were just an extension of time for missed 2014 goals. I wanted to get them out there because I had realized I’m doing well compared to my expectation, and I wanted a way to share.
- Joined SFWA as an Associate Member.
- Submitted three stories and two poems to various magazines. I hope to have one more story out in six weeks or so and another before the end of the year.
- Planned a novel using Dan Wells’ 7 Point Story Structure and started on a draft of a novel.
- Finished a Save The Cat style beat sheet and started scene beats for a screenplay.
I’m literally more than 50% of the way through what I wanted to accomplish for the year, with the possibility of finishing everything before May. February ranks now as my second most productive writing month, and most productive since I took a writing break to do my Masters. If I can continue this forward motion, I may have the option of trying to accomplish my 2016 goals this year. I’m not ready to move up my goals yet, but there may be such a post at the end of March if things keep going well.
