It's IWSG time again. The new year is a time for optimism though, so I'm doing my best to look forward to all the things I'd like to achieve in 2016, rather than worry about what might go wrong.
Last year was my best ever for short story sales. I'd like to do even better this year. That means I'll need to write and send out a lot of work, so that's mainly where I'll be concentrating my time and effort.
I'd also like to write more articles. Don't know why but I'm far more nervous of pitching them than I am with subbing fiction. Several writing friends have offered suggestions and encouragement though, which might well spur me into action.
Then there's the bigger, long term project. Firestarter was the last one. I have a few things I could work on, but am yet to decide which to tackle first.
What are your writing plans for the year ahead?
