This post is for Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writers Support Group (click the link for details on what that means and how to join. You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out. The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts, fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
This month’s question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
Here are a few writing goals I have for the next five years:
- I’ll have the second book out in my Rowe-Delamagente series, Twenty-four Days
- I’ll have the first book in my Evolution series out, Lucy: Story of Man (renamed Born in a Treacherous Time)
- I’ll at least be working on the next book in the Evolution series (already drafted), but I don’t know that it will be done
- I’ll have the 7th edition of my fundamental K-8 technology curriculum out
I’m not making any changes to how I do things. I have no idea what I’d change. Maybe that means I’m stuck in a rut. Sigh.
