First, there really isn’t much behind the videos I’m picking here. Some of the big ones that I heard over the year. Either I never found a post to fit them to or I just wanted to post them again.
I’m sure some people are going into 2014 with nothing more than hope. I’ve done that every year. Just a hope that I reach some of the goals that I plan while expecting to be undone by something. I was never a resolution type of guy because the ones I heard were always small and I knew I didn’t have a vast amount of willpower. At least with the weight loss and exercise. I did pretty good this year until I got sick a few times and then it got too cold for me to build up the desire. Still, I do have a plan for 2014 and I’m not talking a ‘Plan B’.
By the middle or end of January, I’ll have finished writing Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind. Family of the Tri-Rune will be released in late February/early March with a special release being made the week before. Wonder what it is? Well, I’d share, but I have to be 100% certain that I can pull it off. The Compass Key will be released July/August and I’ll hopefully be getting at least the first 3 books on Netgalley by then. Curse of the Dark Wind will be released in December. I’m going to follow the pattern I used (stumbled into) this year. If ain’t broke and those smarter than me (Ionia) haven’t told me why it will fail then no reason to fix it.
Outside of publishing, I’m going to try to outline whatever series I can. I’ll continue my week long break between finished books, which will be spent blogging, marketing, and outlining a future idea. If I’m lucky, I can write Sleeper of the Wildwood Fugue, Merchant of Nevra Coil, and The Mercenary Prince by the end of the year. If I can fit Clan of the Snow Tiger in there too then I’ll be way ahead of the curve. Legends of Windemere is outlined to the end, so it isn’t too hard to pull it off. I should expect summer to slow me up though since the little guy will be home and that means I won’t be doing my 3 chapters a week level of writing.
It’s going to be busy and I need to barrel on ahead like a man possessed. The deadline will have passed and the arguments will begin. That means I might lose some of the little support I’ve gotten around here in terms of time and space. So, a little ambiguity is going to be going on for a bit. All I know for now is that I’m staying here and going to keep pushing the books. Hopefully, I can make 2014 better than 2013. So, what does everyone else have planned?
