Last Week’s WW: There Isn’t Always a Happy Ending

Displaying IMG_4367.JPG

At the beginning of this year, I set out to give publishing my all.  I tested the waters last year with my flash fiction collection, but this year I wanted to go full force.  What this meant was putting together a publication schedule.

The photo above is my publication schedule for my upcoming short story series – Sleep Saga.  It took some effort, but I worked with the dates to figure out how to stagger it so that I could get it done.  I’ll admit, I’m about four days late on getting my first story out to Beta readers.  (By the way, want to Beta Read for me?  Email me).  But I’m ahead on finishing the first drafts of my books.  So, I’ll call it even.

Writing it down gave me solid deadlines and a great guide for where I was and where I needed to be.  It also allowed me to prioritize, creating a list so that I knew what I needed to be doing while I different parts were in different stages.

I think that being organized and setting goals will help me achieve a lot this year.
