What's new for the new year - 2012? For one, I've got a lot more time on my hands ;p I've left my day job in advertising so that I could focus more of my time and energy on both my startup and, more importantly, that upcoming novel. Beginning this year, I'm going to ramp up the planning on said novel - and documenting my process along the way. The wall of my apartment is already filled with storyboards and notes just waiting to be blogged about :p
So, my goal for this year? Get my first real taste of novel-writing by planning, writing, and finishing the first book in my 3 part series, hopefully within a period of 6 months. This will be something I've never embarked on before, at least when it comes to doing it with an eye towards completion. I will have to take everything that I've learned in writing the short stories of In-Futura over the past two years (including the very advice that I've given here) and expand that for long-form fiction. I'm sure I'll learn some new tricks and tactics as well, which I'll be sure to blog about here.
It's looking like it will be a very interesting 2012 - happy new year and stay tuned!
