My Creative Goals for 2014

It seems like they are everywhere right now, aren’t they? Blog posts, articles, podcasts, videos, all about the new year and the opportunities it brings to us. I love to read/listen/watch them, to be honest, they add fuel to my hope and good attitude towards 2014. I like the fresh start of the new year, even if I know, intelectually, it’s nothing more than a number, and that most of the new year’s resolutions are not met later on. I don’t really care. I like it.

And in the spirit of that, I’ve been doing my own planning for 2014. I want to share with you my creative goals for the new year:

1) Finish writing the first novel in my DC Files universe.
Tentative date: end of January
Later in the year: edit and send it out

2) Write the first novel in the new series I’m figuring out right now, set at the fictional college campus.
Tentative date: end of May (it may be my Camp NaNo project in April, actually)
Later in the year: edit and send it out

3) Write and edit at least two short stories/novellas.

4) Write an unspecified-yet novel as my NaNoWriMo project.
Not-so-tentative date: November

5) Edit the second novel in the DC Files series.
Tentative date: it depends on what happens with the first novel in that series

That’s pretty much it, that’s what I want to achieve in terms of my creative plans this year. Well, okay, it would be great to write even more, but I don’t want to commit to too much and then fail. I will revisit that list around June or July and we will see if I can add something to it. For now, I already think I’m aiming high. I better get to work!
