Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

Projecting into the future (always a risky proposition)

In 2012 I will:

  • Double the number of titles digitally available by moi (financial success comes from a deep title list) 
  • Finish two novel-length works (screw you, writer's block)
  • Force myself to learn how to outline (you're an artisan, not an artist, Mike)
  • Take my first stab at formula fiction (see above)
  • Chop my WIP list in half (closure!)
  • Take back Thagoth from Random House, revise it, and re-release it with a new cover (oh, yes, every writer needs the editorial guidance, marketing power and cover art that a publisher provides. That I got essentially none of that, and still manage to sell copies of Thagoth, says that I don't need them. I just need to get serious, and get busy.)

In 2013 I will:

  • Be approached by a literary agent because of the success I'm having as an indie author
  • Turn him/her down
That, on the occasion of my 41st birthday, is my plan, and I'm sticking to it.

That's a great plan. Looking forward to your report in 2013
