Where will I go? #IWSG

I know I usually do more than answer the question of the month, but I’m afraid I’m not much in the frame of mind to do so. There’s just been a lot going on.

And now for 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?

Er…I have no idea and thus no plan. I’ll probably try to keep to the schedule I’ve set for myself and primarily keep working on Terra Chronicles novels (and side stories). There’s other projects I’ll want to tackle along the way, but I’m usually wary of the best-laid plans and try to factor for some flexibility.

Kind of why I haven’t announced a specific release date for my next book – I have no idea if I’m going to have a ton of work ahead of me or not when it comes back from my beta readers at the end of the month. Just like I’m unsure of what I wrote for the first draft of book 3.

  1. I don’t like having plans either because I never seem to be able to stick to them, but I ended up writing a “wish list” of goals this time around. It’s nice to have a target, thought I’m not sure if I will be able to stick to any of them or not.

  2. I once wrote down my goals and plans. If I had been able to stick with them, book 3 would be out and so would four Cera Chronicles. So it’s probably a good idea to just wing it as it comes. 🙂

  3. C.D. and Loni nailed it. Sometimes not having a specific plan is good. You just got to keep going, doing what you love and trust it will lead to good things.
