I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where I want to go and how I want to get there. Since I started writing books, I’ve never had any doubt that I want to write fiction for a living. However, the full-time writing career has always been this maybe-someday-if-I’m-really-lucky thing. I don’t want it to be like that anymore. I don’t want to feel like this goal is out of my reach.
That’s why I have made an official goal. I want to be writing fiction full time on or before my 40th birthday. I’m 34 now (35 in October), so that gives me about 5.5 years to kick some ass. And kick some ass, I shall.
Having a deadline has inspired a sense of urgency in me. I would like to kick out 3 books a year, ideally. That’s a book every 4 months. Can I do it? I can damn well try; I already know that. I have willingness, the work ethic, notes for several books. I just need to step up the pace and manage my time better.
Anyway, guess who has a giveaway listed on the Goodreads. Me! *fancy-pants-dance* If you would like to win a true to life, dead tree copy of Lair of the White Wyrm, please utilize the oddly spaced widget below. Also, don’t forget to add it to your bookshelf because that’s what all the cool kids are doing.
