It's time to share our thoughts, insecurities, and encouraging words. Thanks to Alex and our co-hosts for keeping IWSG going. For those who aren't familiar with Insecure Writer's Support Group, just follow the link. It's a wonderful group.
I'm a big believe in setting realistic goals, and for 2016 my goal is to stay focused. To help me do that with my writing, I've set the following goals:
Exercise patience while my agent submits my latest YA novel. (This one is ALWAYS hard. I think I feign patience better than I exercise it.
Finish at least one first draft. With three project in the works (a MG fantasy, a YA realistic romance, and an Adult paranormal romance) this should be doable.
Polish the novel I finish.
Promote my published works. Because they need love too.
I added a word-count widget to the sidebar so that I can see the progress I'm making on my WIPs. Percentage wise, the MG fantasy is winning.
How were your holidays? Are you a patience person? Have you set any goals?
