It took me a while to FIND where I'd posted my goals for the year and see where they were at, LOL. But looking at them now, let me see:
Quote:Fiction writing goals:
- Move on from initial notes to actually writing and completing the Steampunk/Fantasy AU in my head. I finally have a plot, not just characters and a fun setting. But I need to do some research first as well.
No progress there yet. Thinking of saving it for NaNoWriMo this year. And the debate is whether to keep it bandfic AU that I'd post here and elsewhere, or work on it as more original fic to submit to a press I was talking to this past weekend.
Quote:- Maybe finally finish at least one big WIP sitting around on the harddrive.
Yeah, that's always a goal. Oh well.
- Get to 100 lenses on Squidoo & up my Giant Squid status (only 5 short right now). Try to aim for 200 lenses by the end of the year.
I'm at 144 lenses right now and have Giant status of 100+. I'm not sure I'll make 200 by the end of the year, but perhaps if I try another lensmaking challenge this late summer/fall.
Quote:- To be earning at least $200/month by the end of 2012 for on-line writing. More, preferably, but after two of my platforms went for shit this year it's been hard to get the income back up.
My last few monthly payouts have been averaging either just over or just under $200, so I'm happy with that. I might try to up my goal to get closer to $250-300 by the end of 2012, especially as I'm hoping for good holiday sales and traffic this year. So we'll see.
