How did 2015 sneak up on me like that? Here I thought I’d publish my first book in 2014… I’m going to actually do it this year, though. In my last post, I reflected on what I did accomplish in 2014, such as outlining my next novel, attending scifi cons, and revising The Ageless.
It’s amusing to me to go back and look at my 2012 thrice-weekly writing goals, how in 2013 I was still trying to decide how to publish, and how optimistic I was about my timelines in 2014. I tried to use a Gantt chart in 2014 to help me better estimate my timing, but it was too cumbersome.
This year, I’ve started using a weekly planner called WeekPlan.net to keep on-task day after day and TeamWeek.com to visualize my longer editing, design, and publication schedules. I’m hoping these will help me defeat procrastination and keep more accurate timelines.
Of course, I said something similar this time last year. Round 2, Fight!
