2020 Goals

February 2020 Update

With the ideal of keeping honest and transparent, here is a breakdown of February.

Before I start. Oops.

At the end of January, there was supposed to be an update posted for the month. This had been missed. It had been written and not posted. So this means goal 11 will not be able to be completed. But that’s okay. I will make the other blog posts and keep going.

To sum up January, this was the second-best month I have ever done at 57k words. My editing is doing well making the daily editing goals.

Goal Recap.

There are my goals for 2020. I won’t be able to get the number 11 cause of my goof. But I will get others. I’m sure there are going to be many that I won’t be able to accomplish.

Breakdown of Goals.

As I have so many goals, and many of them build on others, I will be only going over the goals I am dealing with at the moment.

  1. Write 600,000 words in publishable story related projects.
    • I am at 105k words for 2020. This month I wrote 47,811 words. If I keep this pace up, I will be around 631k words for the year. This is good. I am writing more than I did last year.
  2. Write every day of at least 500 words making words in a row at 731 days in the road.
    • I am on day 426 of 731. I am making my goal. Every little bit helps.
  3. Catch up on editing allowing no more than 2 manuscripts waiting to be edited.
    • I have five manuscripts waiting to be editing or currently being edited. Progress is being made. I think.
  4. Edit every day of 1 chapter at a minimum.
    • This is being done. I have more focus on this than my other goals.
  5. Secure cover art for any book in the editing stage.

Future plans.

More of the same, but with more short pieces written. With the three I am apart of, it has helped my Amazon Rankings and has gotten me a few sales. I do want to get a few other books published, however.

This journey is not something I can do alone. It takes support from many people for it to become a reality. The easiest way is to visit my Amazon Author Page and purchase one of my books. They are available in all countries and for free in Kindle Unlimited. I do have a tip jar set up at Ko-Fe, where you can buy me a coffee. Or you can also visit me on Facebook. Your help and support are much appreciated.
