#ROW80 Round Two – The Goals

So, another round of ROW80 is upon us. And now it’s time to come up with some specific goals to work toward for this round.

I may add to this list of goals, but for the moment I’m going to go with the following:

Complete a short story by the end of every month – I don’t really have an option with this goal. I’ve made a booking with my editor to submit a short story at the end of every month, so I need to get those stories written.

Get Gears of Wonderland to beta readers by the end of May – Another goal I don’t really have an option with. The novel has been booked in for editing in mid-August, so to ensure I have enough time to get beta reader feedback and make any necessary changes, I need to get it into their hands by the end of May.

Complete another drabble collection – I have half the stories I need to publish another drabble collection (zombies), and this collection is also booked in with my editor. I may not get to publish it during round two (the booking is for mid-June), but I can get everything ready to roll when the editing is done.

Make at least three blog posts a week – This isn’t as many posts as it sounds. One post a week is updating my ROW80 progress. One post will be story exerpts. Which just leaves one general post to make.

So, those are my ROW80 goals for the moment. They may change as the round progresses, but we’ll see 🙂
