Quarterly Writing Goals #1 [2017]

It's January! I don't know what to make of that...

A brand new year.

I'm starting something new this year. Similar to New Year's Resolutions, I suppose. But not quite the same. A lot of authors do quarterly writing goals to motivate them and help them get everything done that they want/need to get done in a year. I have personally never done quarterly writing goals, but I thought since it's a new year maybe I'll give them a try.

So these are my quarterly writing goals for the first quarter of 2017 (January-March):

-Finish Courageous Heart. I am nearly done with this book, I swear I am. There just always seems to be more of it to write, that's all. But I do need to get it finished if I intend to publish it in April.

-Edit Courageous Heart (and get it through the beta reader/editor process). Again, April is not that far away. I need to get all this done.

-Outline book 3 in the Finding Hope series. There's no deadline on this one, but it needs to get done.

-Work on The Tragedy of the Traitor. This is book 4 in my Robin Hood series. I already have a portion of it written, but I set it aside a long time ago to work on the Finding Hope series. I need to go back to it and get it finished eventually.

-Post weekly vlogs. I've actually started to really enjoy making my author vlogs, which you can watch HERE (speaking of vlogs--this is a completely different subject, but--my younger sister, one of my cousins and myself have started a Youtube channel to chronicle the craziness that is our, if you feel like having a good laugh, you should totally check that out too, just follow this link HERE)

-Stay on top of social media. I am terrible when it comes to posting on my author Facebook page or my twitter. I'm just not a social media person. But I want to do it because it's a great way to connect with and reach more readers. So, I'm going to try to be more on top of it this year.

So those are my writing goals for this quarter. We'll see how I did when we get to the end of March. :)
