Summer Goals

But first, a note on Camp NaNoWriMo:

Well, NaNo didn't quite go as planned. You can pretty much see where I had a paper due or an exam to take when you look at my stats graph:

Now that exams are over, I'm looking forward to putting some serious elbow grease into Crossfire and cranking out the rough draft. The snowflake method has been helping me a lot so far, but we'll wait until it's all written to make a final verdict on whether I like it or not. 

Although I'm taking a summer class and working over the next few months, one of my summer goals is to make writing a daily, intentional activity. My summer goals are to finish my Crossfire re-write, do a rough edit on Fractures, and do a macroedit on Crossfire. After that, I'd like to brainstorm/plot out a new story or (if I'm not too burnt out on editing) do a microedit on something. 

The blog should be an exciting place, as well. On May 19th, author Jaye L. Knight will be stopping by for an interview as part of her Samara's Peril Blog Tour. I'll also be doing a review of the book, so if you're interested in Christian Fantasy, you might want to pick up Resistance, which is the first book in the series. 

Then, the week of May 30th, I'll be celebrating the blog's first anniversary with extra posts! 

Finally, I'll be starting a new post series this summer on world building. Once I get an idea of how much work my summer class will be, I may decide to go to a three-days-a-week posting schedule. I'll keep you posted on that. (Pun may or may not have been intended.)

Anything you'd like to see as part of the blogiversary? 

Do you have any new goals you're pursuing? 


  1. Congrats on finishing your exams! And even though nano didn't turn out the way you'd hoped, you still got some writing done which is the important thing. And I'm excited for your blogoversary!

    For me, I'm in the never ending search for work (which majorly sucks) but I also got my driver's license yesterday so I can go do stuff now (which majorly rocks).

    1. Searching for work is always "fun". Good luck!

      Congrats on your license! I just started taking driving lessons myself.
