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.

3.) Get a start on my next one. I have another installment on the docket for my published series, that I need to hit ASAP.

H. Anthe Davis

My goals for 2017 are to publish at least one book.  I have Book 4…

I didn’t really manage any of my resolutions from last year, but I can’t let that keep me from trying this year.

Happy New Year everyone! It is now 2016, and this is the first Authors Answer of the year. 2016 is a big year for me personally, and it should have some surprises in store from many of us. Let’s find out what we’re doing in 2016.

003Question 61 – What are your goals for 2016?

S. R. Carrillo

My primary goals are to continue reading quality indie books, re-release the first two books of my debut series, travel a bunch, love, laugh, deep condition every week and drink lots of water… :D!

Gregory S. Close

Publish.  I’d been invited to contribute a short story to a small press anthology, and due to poor work and life circumstances this year, I wasn’t even able to complete it.  Really frustrating.  I need to figure out a writing schedule that will work so that I can get some closure on works in progress. …

Authors Answer 38 – Summer Reading

In this case I would have liked for the answer to be out of date by the time it was up, but no such luck.

Summer, time for the beach, time for summer sports, time to go basking in the sun. Or maybe you’d prefer to read in the shade or in an air-conditioned home. Well, I like doing all these things, but this is about reading. Let’s find out what everyone’s doing this summer.

beachQuestion 38: It’s summer, so what’s on your summer reading list?

Tracey Lynn Tobin

Ha ha ha…what’s on my summer reading list? That’s a good one. I don’t have a “summer” reading list because my capability to commit to a reading list is pretty much non-existent. For one thing, I never seem to be able to find the time to read these days (and yes, I know how horrible that sounds). For another thing, whenever I try to commit to reading something new I end up getting the urge to read an old favorite, and that favorite almost always wins…

Authors Answer 8 – A Look at 2015

Authors Answer 8, plans for 2015.

I Read Encyclopedias for Fun

2014 is coming to an end in less than a week, and we have a lot to look forward to.  New Year’s Day is the biggest holiday in Japan.  Nearly everything is closed, families get together and have a traditional meal, and many people spend some time praying at the local (or a famous) shrine or temple to wish for a good year.  The picture below was taken in my wife’s grandmother’s house.  You’ll see these everywhere in Japan.

003So, what are our authors doing for the new year?  Many people try to set goals for the year with New Year’s Resolutions, but for authors, these are more like deadlines, not just mere desires.

Question 8: The New Year is coming soon. What are your plans for 2015 in terms of writing?

Michael J. Sullivan

I always have a lot of projects going on, so let’s see…I’ve spent the last…
