#IWSG: Goals 2020!

08 Jan

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

Goals 2020:

  1. Focus on one project (or series at a time): Thornwick Chronicles and the other series that may tie-in into it.
  2. Do outlines for the other series I do want to write so if the muses change to those stories then I’ll be ready.
  3. Get my publishing company launched.
  4. Teach
  5. Start my freelance editing/writing up again
  6. Start podcasting/doing some live streaming
  7. Apply to the English and Literature Ph.d program at my local university. I have a little over a year for the deadline because they only accept for the Fall Semester so I wouldn’t start until Fall 2021. That means I can work and get a game plan ready that includes attending classes while I work.
  8. Participate more on social media and post on here on a more regular basis.

IWSG Question:

What started you on your writing journey? Was it a particular book, movie, story, or series? Was it a teacher/coach/spouse/friend/parent? Did you just “know” suddenly you wanted to write? For me, it was reading Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire and Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Also, my family and a few English teachers that encouraged and supported me along the way.

That’s it for now. Look forward to reading your comments. πŸ™‚

    Start a publishing company! Quite a venture. Along with teaching and freelance. I’m tired just reading that list.

    I’ve been thinking about applying for the MA Creative Writing at my local university, perhaps I should put that on my goal list for this year.
    Good luck with everything on your list!
