Writing goals – Yes, you need them

As you work on your writing projects, you must have goals in mind whether it be publishing, or just to have fun with writing. I have my own goals that keep in the back of my head as I work on my project. My goals include to be published and to have a group of readers that want to read my novel(s).

Granted, when I started to write my novel, The Raven Prophecy, publishing was not one of the first. The first goal was to write the story, but as I started to jot down the ideas and I started writing that first chapter then that’s when I said I could have this book published and that is what I’m working towards. But I’m still working on that first goal of writing the story and then it will to edit it, and then do a re-write, edit that and then hopefully (fingers crossed) publish my novel.

I also have had other goals that have come to find, based on information that I have gathered and found about being a writer. Some of these goals include: starting a website, starting my publishing company, third fiding readers, and fourth marketing my book/myself as an author. But all in all when you write you must have goals, and every project has a purpose, whether it is to be published or to be tucked in a folder somewhere collecting dust. Whatever, it is you must be flexible and face that not all everything that you write might be publishable.

It’s like we have a saying in the alpaca world, “Not every alpaca is a show animal but they have their purpose, and not every fleece is a show fleece or a fleece that is going to be turned into yarn. But it does have its purpose.”

The same is true for every piece that you write. If you liked tonight’s post,¬†and want to know more, comment or send a notification that you want to make contact.

Welcome to Faerie Rose Press

Hello and welcome to Faerie Rose Press! Where to begin? Well the beginning of course, writing has always been a passion of mine and I’ve been working on my debut novel, The Raven Prophecy, for the last thirteen years. You may think that is a long time to be working on a novel, but first when the initial idea came for the novel I was just starting college, and I graduated college. Then to continue on that I started my career and then I found a new love, which has been raising alpacas and llamas. But I have always stuck with writing this novel. This novel has been a passion, an obsession, and a love for the last thirteen years.

My goals are to one finish and complete this novel. I should say not just to finish and complete the novel but to also publish my novel. Now I know that you must be thinking that I’m crazy for sticking to this novel for the last thirteen years, but you must understand that as a writer, you have to be dedicated to your story, and I’m totally 100% dedicated to this novel.

Furthermore, in being dedicated to writing this novel, I also came up with a publishing company to publish my book. Yes, Faerie Rose Press. The reason for the name is one that I’m a fantasy fiction writer. I love fantasy and I thought that the press would also show that it is a fantasy publishing company as well as in the slogan: Where stories are not just writen for Faeries.

Overall, I hope on this site that I can show my love for writing as well as let you know how my novel is going. I also hope to share my knowledge with other writers that have aspiring dreams of writing and publishing their own works of writing.

I hope that this introduction was informative, but if you want to know more, comment or send a notification that you want to make contact.

Until then good night!
