Writing Goals For 2017

  1. I am currently working on a series of Novelettes, that I would like to publish and offer separately, and also offer them in a collection, when they are published.
  2. I feel that the Novelette is often overlooked, as short stories, Novellas and Novels are typically published

Novelettes are typically between 7,501 to 17,500words. They are a little longer than short stories, but can be easily read in one sitting. I feel they will become important again, and here are the reasons why:

  1. People here in the U.S.A. often work two full time Jobs, just so they can support their families. Many young people do not have the time, and are unable to dedicate the time to reading a full length novel.
  2. I think with now with e-books becoming so readily accessible, the short story and Novelette is becoming more popular, and will eventually be the chosen over the full length novel in the future generations of young adult.

It is my overall goal in the next few years to redefine the novelette, and bring it up to date for the 21 century.

My immediate goal is to finish my first volume of Novelettes for 2017 and make them available on Create Space and Amazon Kindle.

I would also like to create my own publishing imprint.
