Or maybe that should be Blog Hope because this is all about what I hope to accomplish for the year 2015. Well, let me belly right up to the bar and say I have been in an absolute writerly funk for at least two months now, probably more. The only words I’ve put to computer screen as of late have been random and scrappable as I attempt to find one of my WIPs I’m actually interested in writing. I even started a brand new one or three. Likely so I can scrap them.
As a writer, I suck moose balls lately.
For 2015, I firmly intend to suck less moose balls. Intention is half the battle. Getting my kids back in school is another sliver of the pie. Pulling my head out of my ass and staying away from the interwebs is another necessity.
I love the word interwebs, by the way. Sounds like something my grandma would say.
I intend to self publish the book I’ve been (ssssllllllooooooooowwwwwllllllllyyyyyyyy) editing. I plan to do some research into the American Revolution and plot out a historical romantic gay mystery that will probably be completely unsellable because it will be a historical romantic gay mystery. It will also be tough to write for the same reasons. I plan to finish my NaNoWriMo novella, which shouldn’t be as hard as I’m making it out to be because I love these characters and have had it outlined, well, since November. And then it will be on (like Donkey Kong) to the fourth book in my Shooting Stars series. I plan to write an MM contemporary romance with an ultra-odious character I want to make people fall in love with by the end. I firmly intend to map out a post-apocalyptic series I’m chewing on and write the first book. I plan to remind myself that sometimes writing really is a job, and I need to knuckle down at the rough patches because the fun stuff will come shortly thereafter, and then I can cut the flab. Basically, I intended to stop being a bon-bon-eating, whiskey-swilling, porn-watching waste of space and churn out some damn words this year.
So, what kinds of books are you hoping to see in 2015? Do tell!
