2020 Goals

March 2020 Update

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

COVID-19

The world has changed as people hide in their houses. I’m not going into much detail, but it’s changed how I live. Not to a great extent, but now I have a reason not to leave my house. Many creatives are hitting the COVID-slump. Me. I’m writing more.

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.

There are my goals for 2020. I’ve altered goal 11 to keep me writing these update goals. Cause, just because I’ve failed, doesn’t mean I should stop trying.

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 156k words for 2020. This month I wrote 51,041 words. If I keep this pace up, I will be around 621k words for the year. This is good. I am writing more than I did last year. I want to raise that number for the year up, so I will have to do better in April
  2. Write every day of at least 500 words making words in a row at 731 days in the road.
    • I am on day 457 of 731. I am making my goal.
  3. Catch up on editing allowing no more than 2 manuscripts waiting to be edited.
    • I have four manuscripts waiting to be editing or currently being edited. The number is dropping. It doesn’t help that I am still writing new words. It means I need to keep up with things.
  4. Edit every day of 1 chapter at a minimum.
    • This is being done. I have more focus on this than my other goals. Editing finished work is a week spot of mine. The time getting it done at least.
  5. Secure cover art for any book in the editing stage.
  6. Publish a minimum of 1 book.
  7. Publish a minimum of 3 books.
  8. Publish a minimum of 5 books.
  9. Publish a minimum of 7 books.
  10. Write one blog post a week.
    • This is being done. I have yet to miss one and I don’t attend to miss it.
  11. Write an update blog for the remaining months.
    • This is to keep going. No time to waste.
  12. Clean up Tokyo Tempest #1 with a proofread.
  13. Write and submit 5 short stories to markets.
    • I should write some short stories.
  14. Publish 7 short stories or novellas to amazon.
  15. Set up a Patreon account.
  16. Set up proper social media author accounts and a proper newsletter.
  17. Have 1 paying client of editing services.
  18. Make 100 dollars one month through publishing.
  19. Make 500 dollars one month through publishing.
  20. Make 1000 dollars one month through publishing.
  21. (Bonus) Get back in shape physically by losing 20 lbs.

Future plans.

I am getting close to being about to publish some manuscripts. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and it isn’t a train. I hope to get things moving and up. Being on the fourth month, I have yet to publish anything. I need to change that.

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.
