I know I’m a couple days late, but please accept my happy wishes for you in this new year! I don’t know about you all but I am SO EXCITED 2020 is over…it was a rough year, y’all. But I’m going to put the past behind me, take the lessons I learned from 2020, and charge forward into 2021.
I have so many plans for the coming year, both in my writing career and personal life. I’m not one to make endless New Year’s Resolutions as I typically do my yearly reflection and intention setting during Samhain (October 31st), but this year I felt inspired to push my boundaries a bit and set new goals. I must say I did this in true “Shanna fashion” and organized my goals by month and task–for those of you who haven’t picked up on it yet I tend to be a bit overly inclined towards organization.
Doing this means that I can give you some sneak peeks into what I have planned for 2021!
|January||Edit “Fae Spreads: 2020” (Tarot)|
|February||Edit “A Second Chance” (Contemporary Romance)|
|March||Edit “C.R.E.A.T.U.R.E. Control” (More info to come!!!)|
|April||Edit “Scottish Savior” (Contemporary Romance)|
|May||Draft Novel (New Novel — Still debating between two ideas!)|
|June||TBD — Let’s see how well I stick with the first 5 months of |
|July||Edit “Justice” (Book 1) |
— This was my NaNoWriMo Project for 2020!
|August||Edit “Scottish Savior” after Beta Reads|
|October||Edit “Scottish Savior” after Editor|
|December||Finalize “Fae Spreads” (2021 Edition)|
I bet you thought I was joking when I said I organized it by month…I wasn’t!
As you can see I have a number of novels I’m hoping to work on this year. If all goes well, I am hoping to have 3-4 new books published by the end of 2021. I know that sounds like a lot, but I have been working on a couple of these novels for some time. The books I’m hoping to get published are:
“Fae Spreads: 2020” (Tarot)
“A Second Chance” (Contemporary Romance)
“Fae Spreads” (2021 Edition) (Tarot)
Hopefuls for the Future: “Rhys of Novia” (Fantasy Romance) & “Scottish Savior” (Contemporary Romance)
I will be sure to release more information about release dates, covers, and the like as these dates get closer and I have more information to offer. As you can see, I will be having a busy 2021 — and this is just my writing goals! I have a few personal goals as well:
Read 100 books (You can follow my progress on Goodreads)
Participate in writing events
Create positive habits of daily meditation and yoga
Craft daily spiritual practices — especially for New/Full Moons and Sabbats
FINALLY finish the garden at the front of my house
All-in-all, I’m hoping to make the most of 2021. Thank you to all of you for following, supporting, and reading my stories through 2020 and continuing into 2021. I hope I have many new adventures to take you on!
Until then, Happy New Year! I look forward to hearing what your 2021 goals are as well!
