I was reading JC Hart’s blog about July when I realised that I had not even done my goals for May!  So this is a double banger!

1.  Finish the bloody Gothic Novel – OK, I am editing this, was in May and now that SoCNoC is over I can focus on this once more.

2. Write three novels this year – evenly spaced out – April , June and September – Blood Gold is in progress.  Have finished the Ice Planet novel for SoCNoC and I am considering NaNo in November

3. Edit three novels – Working on KQ&N and Gothic Novel, later this year I will start on Ice Planet or Blood Gold if I get it finished!

4. Edit the twelve short stories accomplished in 2010 – I have edited a grand total of TWO short story.  This really isn’t my focus this year, but I have them there, I should get them to a finished standard!

5. Create twelve new short stories in 2011 – Probably not going to really focus on this anymore, Blood Gold is going to take up more time than I anticipated, but novels are my passion, I want to stick with them.

While I am pleased to have finished SoCNoC, today I am really missing Kelvaras and Vyvica.  I probably should get my thinking cap on, because while I completed SoCNoC, and achieved 50k, I want to add another 15k – 25k to really make the story EPIC!

    You are do so great! Three novels in a years with all the revision you’re doing will be such an achievement! I think you’re right not to let the short story goals bother you too much but use them as a diversion or break from novelling when you need something shorter to work on. Here’s to July!

      Thanks Kerryn. Goals are meant to be altered to fit with your constantly changing perspective. It is nice to have support when you do change your ideas.

    You don’t have to write shorts to write good longs – I say focus on what’s important to you 🙂 You ARE doing great.

      Thanks Cassie, shorts just aren’t my forte, and I don’t believe I will get better with practice while I still have the “I can’t do them” mentality. That may change, we will have to wait and see.

    It is always so nice to get feedback from writing friends who are supportive. Thanks so much to all of those who leave comments, they are always something positive to come back to when you have a “bad writing” day! 🙂
