My 2016 Creative Goals

Can you believe we’re almost halfway into January already??

I must have passed out somewhere. I mean, that’s gotta be the reason for all those missing days.

Last December arrived and I tried to tally everything I did. At first, I was really upset. It didn’t seem like I got anything done, despite my anti-goals. Another year without an agent. Didn’t get my new book finished. Mark me a failure. Moan.

Whatever.

Then I really thought about it.

We freakin’ bought a HOUSE last year. With grass. With its own water bill. Which also flooded two months after moving in. And we got a puppy. That was sick for three months, and had to take the retard to the ER 3 times for doing dumb things like eating 10 lbs of my parents’ dog food in one sitting (and who is literally running circles currently in the backyard). And my DGH got a new job. And I lost 6 months from being sick to my disorder.

The fact I got ANYTHING creative done is freakin’ amazing. I got two drafts done on my Middle Grade fantasy, handed it off to my CPs, a verrrry rough draft done on the sequel to WPF, brainstormed other projects. Not to mention paintings!!

Then I didn’t feel so bad 😀

This year, I wanted to make some realistic creative goals. Two weeks ago, I made a giant list of everything I wanted to do. Then I spent some time hard core scaling it back. If chronic migraine life has taught me anything, it’s how to be realistic.O N E D R O P

So, here’s my Migraine Adjusted Creative Goals:

How did YOU do during NaNoWriMo? (I won!…By cheating)

NaNo is officially over! Hooray! Writers around the world are slumped over their keyboards, hyperventilating from the last effort push, with week-old coffee mugs and take out tipped over.

Did you make your goals?

I made my top three NaNo Rebel goals!

  1. Finish line editing RBRP (Luka’s POV and moving hard copy edits into word doc)
  2. Finish sending to readers and incorporate feedback, as much as I can
  3. 1-2 blog posts a week (The Advent post yesterday still counted!)

But……I have a small confession to make.
