2012 Accomplishments - 2013 Goals

It's time to sit back and look at my writerly accomplishments from 2012. I set no written goals in 2012; nevertheless I broke new ground in my career. Some were planned while most others were complete surprises.
It's good to put it down in one place - at the time it didn't seem like I was accomplishing this much.

My goals for 2013:
  • Release Emerald City Iron on kindle.
  • Release Emerald City Dreamer in print.
  • Complete the first draft of the next Dreams by Streetlight novel.
  • Begin a completely new project - A novel or novella set in a new world - probably my kombucha-inspired story I've been dying to get to.
  • Sell two more short stories.
  • Stretch goal, to publish a short story in a pro-paying market.
  • Perform 3-5 readings.
  • Be a panelist at a con.
Notice there aren't any marketing and sales goals - I take those as "givens" as part of releasing a new novel. I'd rather focus on producing than be distracted by written marketing goals.

If 2013 is anything like last year, I fully expect more surprises.
