As nearly a quarter of the year has gone already (where did that go?) I thought I'd post a review of how I'm getting on with my goals for this year. So, here we go:
1. Republish Billy. Yes, did that in January. You can find him here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Billy-Sparkling-Socks-Rainbow-School/dp/154264853X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1492950556&sr=1-1&keywords=billy+and+the+sparkling+socks
2. Publish 'Birds Flock Together'. Hope to do this next week once I have finished self-editing Qessa's story.
3. Publish Charlie. Hope to do this in June. The cover is currently been designed by my illustrator.
4. Publish Susie. Want to do this near end of year.
5. Write more womag stories. Am doing that.
6. Get a story accepted by Woman's Weekly. This has now changed. I now want to focus on writing for one womag at a time until I get one story published. Have had 2 rejections from them this year.
7. Get a story accepted by The Weekly News. Same as above. I now want to focus on reading and writing for The People's Friend. They still have one of mine. I am currently working on another, then will change the ending of another to send to them too.
I am also going to try writing sci-fi to expand my areas of writing and targets. Now aim to get a story accepted by TPF and a sci-fi mag by end of year.
8. I am keeping my biz expenses up to date.
So, how are your goals for this year doing so far? Let me know.
