I can’t believe I’ve let the blog lapse since June. A lot has happened since then, including Readercon, day job stuff, and a few personal things. However, that’s the past, and as New Year’s creeps up on us, it is time to look ahead and get ready.
2018 promises to be a lot of work, but also offers the chance for a few new milestones.
My plans for 2018:
- Complete the MFA thesis novel (military fantasy) by February 1.
- Complete my craft essay by February 12.
- Develop a paper into an academic article and send it out to the appropriate journals.
- Participate in SFF PitMad in March.
- Apply to Odyssey Writing Workshop by April deadline.
- Go to Futurescapes in April (I was accepted and paid tuition already).
- Graduate with MFA in May (7 credits to go).
- If accepted, go to Odyssey Writing Workshop in the summer. I’ve now applied twice. Hopefully this will be the year, but only time will tell.
I’m sure as the year progresses, there will be other items on this list, but I think it’s off to a good start. What are some of your goals for the new year?
