2016_January_2016This has become a bit of a tradition for me – perhaps I’ve figured out a way how to hold myself accountable for my writing schedule.

Each year, I set myself writing goals … and up until now I’ve pretty much stuck to schedule. Let’s see if I can keep this up for 2016…

Of course, in 2016 I’d like to keep on blogging. I’m going into my 4th year and I enjoy blogging weekly on writing and traveling, so I plan to keep up on my two-posts-a-week schedule in this new year.

In 2015 my goal was to finish writing and editing my contemporary, multi-narrator story set in Rome: Three Coins. And I did it!

In 2016, I want to go back to finalize editing (ugh! always my sore point) of my contemporary/19th century time travel novel Dark Blue Waves.

I also want to complete the writing for a dual story line contemporary/turn of the 19th-20th century novel I’m working on now, which is set in Rome. I’m at the early stages, so I still have lots of ideas floating around, but I can feel the story starting to fall into place. Hoping I can continue with those rhythms to complete it this year.

And of course, I’ll continue writing short stories. I’m also trying my hand (with varied success) with flash fiction. I may be too verbose for the form, but I’m certainly having lots of fun giving it a try.

So, fellow writers and readers, those are my writing resolutions for 2016. And yours? Whether you are resolution writers or not, a very happy writing year to us all in 2016!
