Summer Writing Goals!

Because I have nothing better to do (except unpack, but I swear my possessions have all multiplied since I've been at uni. I didn't realise I owned this much STUFF!), and because I love making lists (more than I like actually accomplishing the items on said lists...), I'm going to compile a list of writing goals for this summer. Except it doesn't really count as a summer holiday if you don't have a school or course to go back to, does it?...argh, this is making my head spin. On to the list, anyway!

Writing Goals:
  • Finish editing Darkness Watching for publication!
  • Get feedback on Walking Shadow (Darkworld Book 2) from beta readers and rewrite/revise accordingly. 
  • Then send Walking Shadow to my publishers!
  • Complete the first major edit of Darkworld Book 3 (and decide on a title!)
  • Complete the first draft of Darkworld Book 4! (ditto with the title thing)
  • Update and check outline of the final Darkworld novel before starting...eeek!
  • Plan/outline at least one other project to start work on after Darkworld is complete (I'm currently worldbuilding for a potential YA high fantasy project I'm very excited about!).
And here's some general goals:
  • Be Awesome on work placements.
  • Get more work placements/internships/job interviews.
  • Read a ton of books and write reviews.
  • Think of something original and creative to do with my blog.
  • Please, please don't face-plant at Graduation Ceremony.
  • Make plans with awesome people, somehow - now we've left uni, everyone's scattered all over the country!

Here's to a fantastic summer!


  1. wow well goodluck! Those sure are a lot of goals... you must be a high achiever (like me!) :)

    1. Thanks :) Yeah, I tend to aim high...doesn't mean I'll actually achieve everything on the list, but I'll try! :)

  2. Enjoy your summer! Good luck with the job hunt - I know how stressful that can be.

  3. Amazing how the "stuff" multiplies like bunnies, isn't it? I think that every time I move! Hope you have a great summer and congrats on graduating. You are amazingly ambitious!

    1. Thank you :) I'm not sure I'll be able to meet all these goals, but I'll try!

  4. Whoa, you have so many goals on your plate right now. I think I'd flail if I had to juggle so much at once, haha. Good luck accomplishing them all!

    1. I like to keep busy :) But I am doing a lot of flailing at the moment!
