Writing Goals for 2017
Last year I released two books, Ultimate Guide to Content Writing and The Crumpled Innocence. Apart from Amazon where I generally publish my books, I also had the opportunity to get The Avenging Act on Quillr App a new reading service launched last year.
Another exciting thing happened last year was my participation in NaNoWriMo, 2016. It was the first time I participated in penning down a full-length novel. Even though I wrote around 60,000 words, subsequent editing has rendered a sharp decrease in the word count.
Which brings me to writing plans for 2017. I would be releasing Ye Honey Bunch, my next book on 05 Feb 2017. This is the same one, which got me a NaNoWriMo winner certificate. I don't know which book would follow this. I have 2-3 sketches in mind. So many stories need to be told to the World, yet so many to hide from sight.
I hope to release one more book between August and November. Let's see how that works out. After Ye Honey Bunch I would get busy with the revision of all my previous books. I want to polish them further. Also, I am looking for more publication platforms other than Amazon and Smashwords where most of my works are listed. Once I am done with the revisions I would be ready to roll out print versions of the books currently in e-mode. Only The Avenging Act, The Thakur Boy, and The Reluctant Scribbler are available in print. Also, Six Degrees, where I was one of the several authors.Bringing more books to print will help me further the reach of my stories.
If I have to strike a calendar I would say, we would start from Feb. YHB comes out in E format on 5th Feb. Slowly I will get the print edition out by March. April to August will see re-introduction of old books in box set formats, print formats and new platforms for e-books. Hopefully, I will get time to work on a second book to release by end of year.
As far as this blog is concerned, I will be updating it as regularly as I can. I am also getting a lot of invites for guest posts so some of my writing energy would be spent their as well.
