Final Tri-Annual Progress Report & 2018 Writing Plan

BEGIN 2018 WRITE

Usually I’d post this during the final days of December, right before the New Year. Alas, December 31 was on a Sunday. And I’ve become a stickler in keeping with my posting schedule. So I compromised to have this post published right as the old year ends and the new year begins.

But before I start regaling you with my final progress report and 2018 writing plans, I just want to say…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Now, in 2017 I made a lot of plans. Some I was on goal, others I was not. In particular in not writing any new stories until at least I’ve completed one or two of my current  WIPs. But I did write 30 new poems in NaPoWriMo this past April. And I did get two poems, both written during NaPoWriMo, published in an online magazine.

Oh man 2015 will be coming to an end in just 15 hours and 59 seconds. And to spend the last couple of hours left in 2015, I’m doing an end of the year blogging review.

So, let the countdown begin!

Writing Plans for 2016

BEGIN 2016 WRITE 2.0

Well I’ve given it some thought and somehow managed to come up with a quasi writing plan for 2016. It’s definitely not made of stone, so there’s room for flexibility. And definitely I will not add any new ventures onto my plate unlike I did with 2015. Well at least, I’ll try.

First, I’ll critique 3 works on Scribophile every weekend. I need to build up my karma points so that I have enough to start uploading my work for critiques. It’ll  help to sharpen my critiquing skills too, as it’s gotten rather dull. So I’ll either focus on critiquing one set of poetry and two shorts or one short and one chapter (at a time if need be).
