Possibly finish Deadly Nightshade, either complete most of it or all of it. Write it on other websites/apps too. Currently on episode 7
Work on at least 2 of my other stories on Episode, probably Fairest of Them All (since it’s the most recent), and Perfection OR Queer: Flowers Have Thorns.
Promote my stories on Instagram more often. With the new design/layout, it’s harder for me to navigate the app than it was a year ago.
Possibly join another creator’s contest? I haven’t done any in a while, but my stories don’t even get that much recognition so there’s no point in doing them lol
Completely rewrite Mysterious Northview, because I wanna try my hand at other genres, kinda, and because I actually enjoyed writing it. However I’ll definitely use some of the tips I’ve learned in the past 2(?) years to recreate this story. And I’m changing the title, as well as the cover.
Finally publish the first chapter of the story I’d been working on over there since summer 2020
Write at least 3 chapters
Create that playlist
Expand more on the plot
As a writer in general:
Improve my dialogue - I suck at it.
Possibly get better at character development? I mean my character development is pretty good, but not amazing
Try other genres of stories, maybe.
Start working on that one story I started based on “Forest of a Thousand Lanterns” about 3 years ago
I kinda want to make Deadly Nightshade “big” - that is, possibly, someday, turn it into a TV show?
Find more music, like instrumental music, for writing on Spotify and create a writing playlist there
Most of these are long-term goals, but the goals you share can be either long-term or short-term!
Finish 1-2 short stories (one is almost done and I’ve already got the idea for the second one)
Write at least the first part of my new novel
Maybe also write the second part of that novel, depending on how my summer goes
Start a portfolio for my poetry stuff (but first I need to find what I’ve written so far and sort through it)
Proofread Dreams and Nightmares (again), maybe redo the cover for the final season and just, in general, get it ready to show others in case I ever have enough confidence to actually tell my friends/family about it
Find another platform to publish my finished novel on (I’m currently trying to decide between Wattpad and Neovel)
Improve my punctuation in English (because I still don’t know any rules, I just put a comma where it seems to be right)
Get better at promoting my work (I might try TikTok if I choose to go with Wattpad as a platform to publish my novel on)
Maybe get a review for all three parts of Dreams and Nightmares
Try to be more proud of my own work
I sorted them by how important they are to me but I think I should be able to get through all of them this year.
Funny how I claim to get His Temptress done by the end of 2022 yet I have so many story ideas, I can’t even decide. Although, I want to finish off His Temptress and my poetry book, Thornology. That way, I won’t have to stress about working on many books in one shot!
Been taking a lot of breaks due to mental health and because of my room getting a makeover so I’d have to find other ways of being productive enough so I can be stress free.
His Temptress, you gotta be done by the end of 2022! I am sure that my fellow Temptresses would want to read you one day. Heheheheheh!
