September Writing Update

Ok, this is a little late, because I had some job stuff (not really job hunting, but sort of officially accepting the offer) to do on the first.

Writing Goals for 2016:

1. Publish Beauty's Daughter, which is the sequel to The Nutcracker King (if possible, I want to finish the second draft/main rewrite by this year!)
DONE. DONE. DONE.

This means all my initial goals (not counting goal 2.5) HAVE BEEN FULFILLED FOR THE YEAR! I am ecstatic!

I haven't sold many copies of Beauty's Daughter so far, but hopefully that changes (and I suppose since it's a sequel, I'll have to hope for more sales of The Nutcracker King first?)
2.5 Finish the second draft of The Goblin Apple by the end of the year. 
I am two-thirds done, so I hope to finish by the end of this month.
3. Publish one of the short story collections at 0.99. 
DONE

Stretch goals
4. Finish Mi & You, this WIP that's been a WIP for the last few years. 
DONE
5. Decide what I want to do with Free of Heart (this year's NaNo). If I decide to publish, I want to finish the second draft by the end of 2016 as well. Finish the rewrite of Heart-less (previously Free of Heart)
DONE

I realise that this space is really like a update space, and it's not very fun reading. But I'm not very good at all these outreach stuff, I suppose. I have the social media sites that I enjoy (like Dayre), and I post there, but it's hard for me to get this author-marketing hat on. I suppose I should make that one of my goals for next year.
