I originally intended to write & post this last month, which probably would have made more sense. But then, as I alluded to in my last post, things went more than a little sideways on me and I’m only now beginning to get my feet under me again.

With that in mind, I want to try making some lists for myself covering more specific ideas about what I want to work on throughout 2020, the commitments I have and what my overall priorities are. Granted, at this stage, I almost have to write off January and February but I can at least use what’s left on this month to get myself organized.

Long Term Projects

  • Organize House Valerius notes.
  • Revise books 1 & 2.
  • Plan book 3 properly.

Naturally enough, my long term projects all revolve around my House Valerius world. Given that I have seem to have stalled on book 3, but being unwilling to give up on it, I want to try going back to the beginning and see if that helps me find my way forward.

Monthly Projects

  • Interviews
  • Short Story

For as few as I’ve done, I do enjoy running interviews and I would like to do more. Ideally I’d like to do one a month; although that is dependent on me reaching out to people, asking if they’re interested and then following through with an appointment. So that’s something I ought to be working on.

Similarly, I’d like also like to get into the habit of a having a new short story posted on here each month. I think this would; a) give me practice in working to a deadline, b) give me practice in working on smaller (and potentially different) pieces, and c) help me get used to people reading what I write.


  • Booknest Reviews
  • Author Toolbox posts

Right now I only have 2 writing commitments beyond myself; writing reviews for Booknest and the monthly #AuthorToolboxBlogHop blog post. I think that’s probably enough for the time-being.


Even before the events of last month, my intention was to do my best to put both family and my own well-being first. And with everything that’s been going on, it’s only made the importance of this that more apparent.
