Writer Recharge 2014!!!


Hey lovelies, 

So it's February already. Oh wow. Let me tell you, I'm all over the place.
     The whole publishing business is crazy. Like I'm running around trying to to lose my head crazy. It's a good thing. It is. :) 
     Needless to say, I saw this challenge and I figured I need to participate. I love being part of this encouraging community. 
     So here's what's up. 

Writer Recharge 2014
Hosts and cheerleaders:
Timeline:
  • First week of February: Post your goals for the month on your blog, website, or Twitter. Use the hashtag #WriterRecharge. Link your blog post at sarabiren.com.

Fun right?

My personal goals...

     I have started two secret squirrel projects at the end of January, so this months I'd like to hit at least 25% on both of them. It may not seem like much, but having 25% on paper will help me solidify the stories enough so that I can figure out where to go from there. One of the books will need to be written faster than the other. Book two is more of a sanity project, but I still want to have a good amount on paper. 
     The other side of this is my YA Contemporary which is being published in March. I have a lot of promotional stuff to do, cover reveal, and such. So basically, I'll be busy. Also, if you guys would like to be part of the cover reveal, I'd heart you forever!! http://valialind.blogspot.com/2014/01/cover-reveal-sign-up.html

     Any writers out there? Who's ready for a Writer Recharge Party? Let me know if you're participating! I'd love to meet some of you! 

Much love, 

Valia
