My Writing Goals for 2013

Last year, I posted my writing goals for 2012. They were:

  • To fully and totally complete my dissertation
  • To unveil my revised website
  • To complete the first draft of one book
  • To start book two
  • To query agents

How did I do?

My dissertation was finished and approved and my website was completely overhauled. I did complete the draft of one book (though not the one I intended) and started book two. Though I have had some informal interaction with agents, I have not queried any. I intentionally put this on hold, per the recommendation to wait until I finished writing the books.

There were also some other key developments that weren’t annual goals, having been started midyear:

So, looking forward, what are my goals for 2013?

  • To self-publish My Faith Manifesto.
  • To complete my two works in progress (God, I Don’t Want to Go to Church and 52 Churches)
  • To query agents to represent me in the above two books.
  • To rewrite my dissertation into a more accessible format.

I will post updates as they occur, but check back next year to see how I did on the entire list.
