Goals for the final quarter of 2015

I’m a bit behind here in posting my goals for this quarter. Mostly it’s because of the translation, but here’s an even better excuse:

Those are my granddaughters at the second biggest Volksfest in Germany. Only the Munich Oktoberfest is bigger.

Which proves that I am not working all the time. 🙂

My goals for this round are going to look a lot like those from last round, just with a few completed taken off the list, and a few new ones added. I never manage to everything on my lists. They’re there to keep me focused. So here we go:

Goals for the final quarter of 2015


– Finish the translation of Dragons from the Sea


– Write an average of 3000 words a week. I upped this in accordance with Kait’s challenge, even though I know I don’t have a chance of meeting it until after I’ve finished the translation.

– Finish Shards of Glass

– Start revisions of Facets of Glass

– Write 3 new short stories

– Revise “Pool of Souls” and send it out

– Decide whether and what to do for Nanowrimo (dependent on getting the translation done in time)

Writing business:

– Schedule ongoing promotions for my books

– Submit 5 short stories to traditional markets

– Publish “Starting Out as an Indie Author”

– Publish “Shadow Artist”

– Publish “Degrees of Separation”

– Publish “Cutting Edges; Or, A Web of Women” as an ebook

– List books with Babelcube & Noisetrade

– Put together collection of my writing articles with Jay Lake

– Put together collection of fantasy stories with Jay

As usual, I’m pretty sure I won’t get bored. 🙂

Good luck to everyone this round!
