Februrary 2018 Writing Goals

Well, it's been one month since I first started working toward my writing goals. Things have gone okay, although not as well as I'd hoped. Still, some work is better than nothing, which is close to where I had been for the past year or more.


So, here are the results for January:

1. Complete 13,000 words on Before the Dawn. Completed around 3,000 words this month.

2. Complete 7,000 words on a new Aston West novella. Didn't get anything started on this goal.

3. Complete 20,000 words on my "Demonkiller" WIP. Completed around 7,000 words this month.

4. Complete 10,000 words on my sci-fi suspense/mystery novel. Didn't get anything started on this goal.

5. Work with Lyndon to plot out the last two novellas in the Max McCannor series. Developed plots for both of these novellas, so met this goal.

6. Write 2500 words on a new Aston West short story. Met this goal, by completing around 3,000 words on my story "Toll Road."

So, things were a bit hectic this past month. I'm repeating most of these goals for the month of February:

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. Write 2500 words on Aston West short stories (hopefully completing "Toll Road" in the process). This will require 625 words per week, which should be able to be completed in a single day.

6. Complete the first draft of "Runaway" with Lyndon Perry.

Hoping things slow down a bit on the non-writing front, so I can get to a few more of these.
