I haven’t wrote in three weeks because of being busy and life you know gets in the way of writing . But I am energized and solely ready to write again . With the writer’s block gone I’m heading into finishing up my chapters for this 2nd draft of my work in progress novel. Although I was hoping to finish the draft fully this year and start the editing publication steps. But I haven’t. Goals aren’t always accomplished of course . So since I did not accomplish my goals this year I’m going to push it into next year .
So where I’m at right now is I’m in the 13th chapter of my 2nd draft .
And I’m still working on the first short story In the Hour of Humanity
So in the year 2022 I plan to not only finish this up but also start finishing up on the 2nd short story RED ENVY and maybe start a 3rd draft of my work In Progress but we will see what happens.
When trying to get your goals done in my opinion you have to prioritize which writing project is most important to you .
Your goals must matter to you as the writer.
I would say set deadlines for yourself. But when setting deadlines I always end up not meeting those deadlines. So instead create milestones that way you will be able to complete your writing goals without a time frame and will be able to finish what prioritize whenever you get a chance to finish .
For example when I completed my 1st draft I did not set a deadline but I made sure to at least write every day . It took one year to write but after completing it was a definite milestone that I felt good about. But even though I finished the first draft my goal to publish my novel was not yet accomplished and still isn’t but will 2022 be the year I finally publish this novel ? Only time will tell . Until then I will just have to work on my writing milestones to help me get to the publication.
