So much for 2017’s goals, eh? But that was then, this is now.
Hiddy ho good neighbors. Welcome to the blogging home of me, indie / self-published author Dana Ellington.
I did a horrible job hitting my goals last year. Simply horrible. I was more focused on getting my third revenue stream set up to flow this year. Consequently, I let my works in progress and my NaNo drafts languish in the nether.
Well, it’s a new year and I’ve set some lofty (doable) goals for this year:
- Release three new titles
- Finish all three NaNo’s (50K drafts each)
- Sell a total of 452 books a month
That last goal…yikes eh? The thing with that one is, I have no control over whether or not readers buy my books. I do however, have complete control over the quality of book I release and the many ways I can entice readers to buy my work. So while the goal is to sell 452 books a month, the quality of book I produce and the seduction of new readers will be my focus. I’ll let the sales fall where they may (though I’m really wanting that 452, lol).
Yeah, so to that end, I’ve got to get to writing. Do stay tuned for updates, excerpts, and such. I’ll be soliciting for beta readers here, as well as reading my fellow blogger / writers for ways to level-up my finished product.
Sending you wishes for a most word-filled 2018.
