Goodbye, 2017: My Writing Roadmap Wrap-Up

Goodbye, 2017: My Writing Roadmap Wrap-Up

Posted by on Dec 30, 2017 in Anna's Posts, Writer's Life, Writing Challenges |

In January, I posted my writing roadmap for this year — a list of the projects I wanted to finish, start, or research in 2017. Though I didn’t specifically state it, I also had a goal of getting four full-length novels published this year. How did my roadmap pan out? It’s time for the 2017 wrap-up!

First, let’s look back on what I’d included in my roadmap.

Anna’s 2017 Writing Roadmap

Books to Publish

  1. The Mortal Falls (Undercover Elementals, Book One)
  2. Fired Up
  3. Wicked in a Kilt (Hot Scots, Book Two)

Books to Begin Writing

  1. The Outlands Shifter
  2. Untitled Highland time travel romance

Books to Research/Develop

  1. Untitled Reborn-series-inspired paranormal romance
  2. Third Hot Scots book

I called this a roadmap because I realized my plans might take unexpected detours, as plans often do. 🙂 I posted updates about my progress in April and July, including projects added to my roadmap. I had planned to wait until 2018 to begin writing Scandalous in a Kilt; instead, after Wicked in a Kilt was done, I jumped right into the third book in the Hot Scots series. My fans love these books, and I couldn’t wait to start a new one. I also decided to write the second book in the Undercover Elementals series this year, The Mortal Fires, which was released in November.

Here’s how my roadmap looks at year’s end. Since the year is over tomorrow, I’m now calling this year road trip, as in one journey completed — but not the end of my writing adventure.

Books Published

  1. The Mortal Falls (Undercover Elementals, Book One)
  2. Fired Up
  3. Wicked in a Kilt (Hot Scots, Book Two)
  4. The Mortal Fires (Undercover Elementals, Book Two)

Books in Progress

  1. Scandalous in a Kilt
  2. Kinetic (Psychic Crossroads, Book Three)

Books in Research/Development

  1. The Outlands Shifter
  2. The Mortal Tempest
  3. Untitled Highland time travel romance
  4. Untitled Reborn-series-inspired paranormal romance

Things have gotten added, but nothing has been removed. I met my goal of publishing four novels this year. Yay! I added Scandalous in a Kilt and The Mortal Fires thanks to feedback from fans, who told me how much they love these two series. With the third Undercover Elementals book in the works, and more on tap for the Hot Scots too (including a Christmas book!), I’m excited for 2018 to begin. It promises to be another sizzling year.

Coming up soon on Spunk & Hunks… My writing roadmap for 2018!

What do you think? What books would like me to focus on this coming year? I’d love to hear from you!
