The holiday season is almost done. It may sound a little humbug, but for me this time of year is very stressful – so I’ll be glad when it’s over.

I’m looking forward to 2015, in fact, I’m pinning some hopes on it.

Chimera Editorial Services will launch officially in January. Brenda Drake is doing a fantastic giveaway for us. There’s still plenty of time to enter.

I don’t have my 2015 goals done yet, probably won’t have them until the first weekend of the month. This time I’m determined to make them attainable.

That being said, one of the things I really want to do in 2015, is blog installments about my writing process. Not only in the hope that some of it might help others, but in the process of writing it all out, I’m quite sure it’ll help me.

Right now I’m looking at the following steps as a blog topic each

  1. The Idea
  2. Drafting Research
  3. Initial Outline
  4. Characters, Places and Things. Oh My
  5. Plot expansion
  6. Step by Step Plot Guide
  7. Guides and Spreadsheets
  8. Time Management
  9. The Draft
  10. Initial Edits
  11. 2nd Pass Edits
  12. Polish

I’m not sure if I’ll do it once a month or every two months, but I have to do at least these posts.

Needless to say, I’m excited about 2015. I think it’s going to bring great things.

Is everyone else looking forward to the coming year?
