Goals for 2013

buttonWith 2013 just around the corner, and since we survived that dreadful approaching Apocalypse on December 21st, I decided to start working on a list of goals for 2013. I divided them into several categories. Some of these are related to my book blog, so I decided to post it here and on my writing website.

  2. Write the first draft of the second and third book in the Allegro Academy series.
  3. Finish writing the first draft of Ghostslayer.
  4. Edit and revise Ghostslayer until it’s “submittable”.
