January 2018 Writing Goals

So, as I mentioned, I need to get back in the habit of setting goals, and then being held accountable to those goals. Those who've followed me long enough know that I used to do this, and it helped considerably more than whatever it is I'm doing currently.

So, here they are...my writing goals for the month of January:

1. Complete 13,000 words on Before the Dawn. This will require 3250 words per week, or a little over 1000 words per day, writing three days per week.

2. Complete 7,000 words on a new Aston West novella. This will require 1750 words per week, or 850 words per day, if I write two days per week.

3. Complete 20,000 words on my "Demonkiller" WIP. This comes up to 5000 words per week, or 1000 words per day if I write five days per week.

4. Complete 10,000 words on my sci-fi suspense/mystery novel. This will require 2500 words per week, or 500 words per day if I write five days per week.

5. Work with Lyndon to plot out the last two novellas in the Max McCannor series.

6. Write 2500 words on a new Aston West short story. This will require 625 words per week, which should be able to be completed in a single day.

So, these goals are a bit sport, especially since I haven't really kept myself in "writing shape" over the past few years. So, let's hope that I can keep things going.

I do plan on addressing my goals weekly, so for simplicity (rather than set up another post), I'll summarize this week's goals here:

1. Complete 3250 words on Before the Dawn.
2. Complete 1750 words on a new Aston West novella.

3. Complete 5000 words on my "Demonkiller" WIP.

4. Complete 2500 words on my sci-fi suspense/mystery novel.

5. Work with Lyndon to plot out the last two novellas in the Max McCannor series.

6. Write 625 words on a new Aston West short story.
