There are my goals for 2020.

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 255k words for 2020. This month I wrote 50,038 words. If I keep this pace up, I will be around 604k words for the year. This is good. I am writing more than I did last year. The average is trending down. This is due to distractions. Publishing a book and getting two more ready for pre-order will do that to you.
  2. Write every day of at least 500 words making words in a row at 731 days in the road.
    • I am on day 518 of 731. I am making my goal.
  3. Catch up on editing allowing no more than 2 manuscripts waiting to be edited.
    • This is working. I suspect that I will be working on this goal until December. But we will see how I do..
  4. Edit every day of 1 chapter at a minimum.
    • I got this one down. I have managed to make it something I do during my normal day.
  5. Secure cover art for any book in the editing stage.
    • I have decided to only do covers for books that are getting close. No need to stress over it.
  6. Publish a minimum of 1 book.
    • Done! Enlisted. Book one of the Agent O’Neal Saga.
  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 expect to be able to publish more books soon. Even after publishing Agent O’Neal. My plans right now are to get the books done as trilogies and get them up. Publishing feels good. The big plan is to figure out marketing of my books. Get more copies sold.

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.
