2013 New Year’s Plans

As this is my first post for 2013, I wanted to take this opportunity to announce to the world my writing goals for 2013:

-Finish My Second Novel: The main project I will be working on this year is finishing the manuscript for my second novel about an outbreak of an alien virus in Seattle. I have been writing it since November 2011 (it started as an unofficial NaNoWriMo project) and initially was my attempt to write my Great American Zombie Novel but has grown quite a lot since then. I will be talking about it periodically in this space.

-Get My Work Out There: Whether it is a blog post, an opinion column, a feature, a short story, or my novel(s), I want to cultivate a wider audience in 2013. That not only means being prolific, but getting out there on the writer’s playing field pitching and submitting things in order to get published. It’s not writing if nobody reads it!

-Regular Posts: What’s the point of a blog with sporadic new content? I want to maintain a regular publishing schedule in this space (as well as on my Infogration Consulting blog), and in that spirit, will post 2 new articles a week for the next 3 months. If I can maintain that schedule, I may expand. First things first, however. If you don’t see any new content, demand it!
