it's not a big deal, I like the show okay, but it's not a 'have to every week' kind of thing

Writing Goals for 2015

Let's try this again.  I wrote 10 chapters and two ficlets in 2014.  That's considerably less than the two a month that I made my goal back at the beginning of the year.  On the upside, I did finish a WIP (Hank Summers Gets His Comeuppance).  My goals for 2015:

1. Go to the library or coffee house twice a week for at least 1 hour

2. Write 2 chapters a month for WIPs

3. Finish 1 WIP

4. Write the next Spike Christmas through Time story for Christmas 2015

WIP List:

Memories Maketh the Man

Kissin' Cousins

The Swap

The Seraph

Sands of Burning Time (ImmortallySpuffy)


January: 15th, sent a chapter of Sands of Burning Time to DragonflyLady who I'm using as a beta until I hear something from Tasha.  Jan 31st: sent a chapter of Kissin' Cousins to DragonflyLady for beta.

May 27th- I wrote a one shot that just bogged me down.  Then, immediately I was able to do chapters to 4 of 5 WIPs.  I'm waiting to hear from Tasha about Sands of Burning Time.  So, I'm working on a short chapter for Oh My ... We're Where Exactly since it was updated the longest ago.

June 18th; found the plot kitties for now, working hard while they're being nice.  I've updated 4 of 5 stories twice since May 27th, the last time I updated this news item.  I never heard back from Tasha.  So, I am working on the Sands chapter without any of her information.  Now the story updated the longest ago is my Harry Potter story Lies.  That will be the next chapter I work on.  Then back to the The Seraph, The Swap, Kissin' Cousins, Memories Maketh the Man, and Sands of Burning Time.

Writing Goals for 2014

I really fell behind this year word wise. A few years ago, I wrote 120 chapters in one year. This year I think I wrote under 20. My life is going pretty good. So, I think that's part of it. LOL I asked in an LJ post about where to write besides in front of a computer because I think that's part of my issues. So, easily distracted by all the fic and pretty pictures and the Elysian Fields Chatzy. To that end, here are my goals for 2014.

1. Find someplace out of the house where I can write in peace. DONE

1a. And actually go once or twice a week.

2. Buy an e-reader of some kind so I can take my fics with me. Sometimes I need to look back for clarification. DONE

3. Write at least 2 chapters a month on my WIPs.

4. Finish 1 WIP. DONE

So, send catnip and sardines for the plot kitties


January: I went to the library and found a couple of spots I can hang out.  Now to tear myself away from the computer!  I have a chapter of Memories Maketh the Man to type in, I have an NCIS scene, and I've started a chapter of Kissin' Cousins.

Feb: I've written the Kissin' Cousins chapter.  I'm going to concentrate on five stories: The Swap, The Seraph, Hank Summer Gets His Comeuppance, Memories Maketh the Man, and Kissin' Cousins.  I've been sick for two weeks.  So, any writing hasn't been happening.  I have my Kindle fire now.

March: I only got one chapter written this month.  It's a Swap chapter.

April: Sadly, I'm falling down on the writing job.  I hope you all don't hate me.  I got a small Spuffy/Lindsey McDonald ficlet sequel to Just a Nibble written for nekid spike lj.  Half way done with a Hank Summers Gets his Comeuppance fic.  You'll be happy he's finally caught sight of the crossdressing midgets and their goats.  Now to relieve him of his pants.  Still plugging along.

May: 5/22, I have the two chapters back from beta.  I just need to get them edited and posted.  I'm pretty sure there is only one more chapter of Hank Summers Gets His Comuppance.  So, that's what I'll be writing on next.  When I'm finished with that, I'll be adding a different WIP to the line up.  I'm thinking Sands of Burning Time.  I haven't updated it in awhile.

5/25: I'm putting together a 'writing bag'.  In it I have a dictionary, thesaurus, journal (means extra paper), a case with a couple of pens and an extra stylus for the Kindle, and a couple of books on writing.  Just have to grab the kindle and wallet to go write someplace.  I am thinking about putting a few dollars in there so I have cash for a soda or snack.

5/29: anyone who follows me on LJ should know that I put up a 'chapter' of Vote a Story.

June: 6/9 I sent the last Hank chapter to Tasha for beta.  Next up a Seraph chapter,  followed by a Kissin' Cousins chapter, then a Memoires Maketh the Man chapter, and then a Swap chapter.

6/18: The Seraph sent to Tasha for beta.  Starting on the Kissin' Cousins chapter.

July: 7/23 - finally finished the KC chapter.  I hate writing fights.  Not to mention there was a plot point I wanted to cover and I had to figure out how.  Next up, Memories Maketh a Man.

September: 9/7 - finished the Memories Maketh the Man chapter.  I'm working on a Halloween ficlet.

November 9th, from here on out the holidays will take over.  I will try to finish the Halloween story.  I will do a new post soon with my 2015 goals.
