I Read Encyclopedias for Fun

It seems to be tradition to talk about our plans for the upcoming year after the New Year. Why stop? This week, we’re talking about what we plan to do in terms of writing this year. Are we going to publish? Write? Find out!

320px-Modern-ftn-pen-cursiveQuestion 114: It’s 2017. What are your goals for the year in terms of writing?

Cyrus Keith

This year I want to do three things:

1.) Finish my current WIP

2.) Find a home for my currently-finished WIP. Tempus Fugitive has been with some larger publishing houses, and requires a polite follow-up, because some things happened that interrupted the standard flow of business.

Authors Answer 21 – The Ultimate Goal

I think it’s good to have your “ultimate goal” higher than your actual expectations, as long as you can avoid confusing the two.

We’re in it for the money, right?  Or is it to become famous?  Or do we want a bunch of fans chasing us down to our book signings?  Or nothing like that?  We all have a goal in mind for our writing.  This week’s question comes from H. Anthe Davis.

Linda G. Hill

Again, I don’t seem to have a choice in the matter: I’m a novelist. I have a hard time writing anything between 500 and 50,000 words. Being a novelist I suppose if any of it’s going to be read, and read widely (which is what I hope) fame and fortune are the consequence. I want neither. What I would like is to be able to write, to be read, and to be financially comfortable… and have at least enough money to travel…
