Things I’m Glad I did in 2013: Hmm...I already posted about my year in writing, but one of the best decisions I made was signing with Curiosity Quills! I also published two books (The Puppet Spell and Darkness Watching), and challenged myself as a writer and wrote my first YA fantasy with an entirely new world, and started my first post-apocalyptic YA book (with a fantasy twist). I also did several publishing internships, started freelance editing, and graduated from university with a 2.1! :)
In 2014, I’d Love to Do/Be: Again, I did a post with my new year plan. I'm hoping to draft 3 books this year, but I'm being flexible with what projects they actually are (since two of my finished projects last year weren't what I expected!). As well as that, I'm hoping to finish my current WIP by February at the latest, and to publish Darkworld Book 2 and maybe another special project for Darkworld fans (publishers permitting!). But my big goal of the year is to get an agent (keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I'll hear back on some of my queries now that the New Year madness is over!).
Current WC: 32K. So I've managed 12,000 words in two weeks - I suppose it isn't terrible, given all the distractions!
WIP Issues this week: Distractions. I've been staying with my boyfriend and family, which has been fun, but has made sticking to a writing routine impossible. Especially with New Year celebrations going on!
What I learnt this week in writing: That sometimes, 500 words a day is an achievement. And that's OK!
What distracted me this week while writing: New Year and various other things - including The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Which was amazing!
