Plans for 2015

I've never been good at keeping up with writing in a journal or a blog. But, to be fair, I haven't had much to update. Or anything, really.

My writing started falling off last summer. I hate that it happened, but it did. I'm working on getting back on track; I've written a little bit today, and I'm pledging with this blog post that I will continue to keep writing! Even if it's only a couple hundred words a day, it's important that I dedicate some time each day to write. I even have a new planner set up so I can make deadlines for myself. It's color-coded and everything!

I'm still working on The Back Up, my story about back-up goaltender Lincoln Reynolds. I'm a couple of chapters in, and I don't know how long it will be. It could end up being just a novella, or maybe it will be a full-length novel. But I'm anxious to get that out to you guys.

I'm also working on getting Play the Man set up with a new cover and to release that in paperback. Oh, and I'm also working on getting "A Valuable Trade" ready for its independent release, my short story submission for the 2014 Seduced by the Game anthology.

Those are all my goals for 2015! And with two months already gone, I have no time to waste.

I have a notebook with a few new ideas jotted in there. Some hockey-related, some completely different than anything I've written before. Needless to say, I'm excited to explore those avenues, too! I have a lot that I want to get to, which means it's time I start buckling down.

Hopefully you'll hear from me soon with more news. I'm off to see if I can't finish off another chapter tonight!
