Writing Goals

My friend Armand Rosamilia always sends out these inspiring blogs about his writing goals, and what he’s going to do over the next week, so I thought I’d emulate him. What? You don’t know Armand?  Go.  No really, I’ll wait.  Go buy Miami Spy Games: Russian Zombie Gun .  Do it NOW!  Seriously. Armand is a fantastic writer, and you won’t regret it.

Goals for the week of 1/9/2013:

  • Right now, What Zombies Fear is the top of my list.  I’m so close to finishing Declaration of War I can taste it!  This week my number one goal is to finish the writing on WZF 5.
  • The Colcoa Tailings is at a crossroads.  It’s about 50,000 words long, and I”m undecided as to whether I want to release it as two shorter, cheaper novels or one long LONG novel.  If I end now, it’ll be about 10% shorter than any of the WZF books.  If I keep going it’ll be about twice as long.  I’m open to suggestions in the comments.
  • The first Victor Tookes Adventures short is about 10,000 words from finished, but my brain has been so occupied with other things there just wasn’t room to focus on it.
  • The Zombie Preparedness Initiative needs a new article written.  I’m not sure what I’m going to write about this week, but I’d like to start posting an article every week there.
  • I still have four episodes to write of Survivalist of the Dead.  We’re not filming for a couple more weeks, so I have a little time on that one.  It’s the project I’m MOST excited about, but at this point that show is a hole at which I throw money.  There has to be money to toss, however, which brings me back to point number one, above.
  • Overall, my goal is to get 10,000 words on paper in the next 7 days.  That’s just about under 1500 words a day.  Totally do-able, and this blog is 400 words of today’s 1500!  Hooray for goal setting!

This blog is picking up steam, and I’m a fan of that!  But that means continuing to do what I’m doing, posting daily blogs that people find

Kirk Allmond's squirrels with Light Sabers

Random Enough?

interesting and entertaining.  This one seems not so entertaining, so here’s a squirrel reenactment of Qui Gon Jinn, Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul’s epic battle.

Have a great day everyone!
