Goals for 2020

Educational Goal:

Below are craft books I own that I have not read or partially read. Kind of sad, and more than a little embarrassing. My goal this year is to read one of these each month, not necessarily in this order:

The Secrets of Story by Matt Bird

GMC: Goal, Motivation, and Conflict by Debra Dixon

Story Genius by Lisa Cron

Wired for Story by Lisa Cron

Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose

Creating Character Arcs by K.M. Weiland

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott

Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell

Revising Your Novel by Janice Hardy

The Art of Perspective by Christopher Castellani

The Last Fifty Pages by James Scott Bell

Write Your Novel From the Middle by James Scott Bell

Blog goal:

I want to post 20 in 2020.  Hopefully, I can do a short post regarding what I’ve learned in each month’s craft book and then eight other posts throughout the year. 

Project goals:

For my latest work-in-progress, It’s Raining Men, I want to have it beta-reader ready by March 1. I haven’t selected a next project, so I’ll have to do that by March 1, while my other works are in limbo. 

In the realm of goals I can’t control, I hope to find an agent for The Color of Trauma this year. 

I’ve got high hopes for 2020!
