Looking to 2014

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s already 2014? I can’t.

When I was writing my reflections of 2013 post a couple of days ago, I went looking for a post at the start of the year with goals, but couldn’t find one. I was sure there was one… do I’m making sure there is one for this year.

As always, I have signed up for a few challenges:

  • Start the year off write – this is the first challenge for 2014. There will be 21 days of challenges to get those creative juices flowing, and it looks like some amazing prizes and opportunities just for taking part.
  • Chapter Book Challenge – In March this year I will be participating in the third year of the Chapter Book Challenge. I’m looking at a few different ideas and am yet to settle on the right one.
  • Blog Your Book in 30 Days – In April, I’m planning to participate in the first of these challenges. The idea is to blog the first draft of a book in 30 days. There are a few different books I’ve been wanting to work on, so I’m looking forward to this challenge.
  • 12×12 – I’m looking at doing this again, thought probably signing up for the Bronze level as I didn’t make as much use of all the advantages of the higher membership in 2013.

That looks like a good start. I’m still editing my chapter book from 2013 and working on my non fiction book as well as a few other projects. I find the challenges are a great way to get my butt into gear and get writing. This year looks like a wonderful year, including writing pirate stories for the next edition ofย Teapot Tales, and any other opportunities that come my way.
