Happy New Year! What Are Your Writing Goals for 2014?

Happy New Year!!!

(I saw this pic on Facebook and really liked the sentiment).  

I'm in the process of making my writing goals for 2014.  So far, I know for sure the Captain's story from my Hostage Negotiation Team series will be out in May. 

There's a few other things on my list, but I'm going to sit down today and really plan it out.

What are your writing goals for 2014?

I reposted that placard on my Facebook yesterday. Love the sentiment. I says so much, and you don't even need to be a writer to appreciate it.

I have very clear goals this year:

1) Finish the portrait on my drawing board--first thing. Start an art project of my own granddaughter!

2) Every morning: pray/eat/read (listen to) BofM/ Exercise 30 minutes a day--5 days a week

3) Publish RELATIVE EVIL (either traditionally or indie)

4) Start submissions on CHANGES OF THE HEART, a mainstream romantic suspense.

5) Finish writing A STRANGE TWIST OF FATE, (Only about 30 pages into it, but I submitted the first 500 words into the ANWA Conference Beginning of Book contest--February 22nd) and start submissions.

6) (Rewrite slightly) Indie publish paranormal trilogy

I think if I can succeed on these few goals, then 2014 will be very good to me.

Good luck on the Captain's story!

I'm planning to use the daily prompts on this subreddit:

to write a little or a lot as a daily (more or less) exercise. My hope is that it will prime the pump for me to start writing towards a finished manuscript.

I think I better start saving my money (maybe using that saving plan I've seen everywhere on Facebook) so that I can afford to buy your 5+ books this year, Debra! =)

Ah, heck, Jon, I'll send you the manuscripts. No need to spend any money. :)
