I have big plans for this year, and some of them may even come off,
Last year I failed to improve on my earnings from writing over 2012, but I still earnt some money, so I'm not upset, especially as I landed a full time job. My noisy neighbours finally learnt what quiet means and the wonderful people at the Charity shop where I volunteer threw a goodbye party for me when I took on the new job.
All in all, 2013 wasn't too bad.
This year I'm going to send my novels to agents and publishers, finish off the third book and start the fourth, as well as take part in a few writing competitions. I've already earnt a few pennies from writing without doing any advertising, so I'm going to try some more interesting marketing ideas this year. I have no idea what they are yet, but my creative mind will come up with something.
I shall also continue reading voraciously, write reviews for the BFS and my quarterly column on digital publishing.
It's going to be a good ride, and I'll share some of it here, alongside the Friday batch of laughter and philosophy.
What have you got planned this year?
