Successes and Failures

Successes and Failures: Things don't always go to plan

Things don't always go to plan


When 2017 kicked off, like most years before it, I had big plans for the year ahead. I was going to take part in the A Story A Week challenge, finish my overflowing WIP pile, and a whole bunch of other tasks, and projects. With the end of the year now fast approaching I can already clearly see that I didn't manage to tick off all the things on my list. Whilst this is disappointing, I also expected this to happen. I know you're probably asking "why did you even bother to make a list if you knew you wouldn't complete it?" Well, because I did kick off a lot of the list.

I always make an over ambitious to do list for the year ahead. It helps get me excited about all the things I'll be working on over the course of the new year. I reach for the moon, so I can at least fall amongst the stars. It's a system that works for me personally.

Looking back over my long, ambitious, list for 2017 I'm happy to note the amount of things I did do (and let's not forget, I still have a couple of months to catch up ;)). I class every single tick on that list as a success. I might not have written as many books as I had hoped. Sure, there are loads of authors out there who produced a lot more than I did. I'm OK with that. I'm not in competition with them. I'm in competition with myself. The me I was yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. 

I didn't write a story every week of the year. I did write several though, which puts me ahead of where I was at the beginning of the year.

I didn't manage to finish writing my serial fiction KOSMOS. This I'm really sorry about. Like I said though, the year isn't over yet... and I'm not giving up. Sometimes life gets in the way of even the best laid plans. I'm just having to reschedule, and change my plans a bit. I'll tell you more about that next week.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.– Confucius #quote #QOTD

One of the things I'm most proud of doing this year, is finally launching my book cover design service. I've already got to work with some great authors, and hope to add many more to my client list. I've been having loads of fun creating new premade covers, and trying out new genres and styles. 

I'm really pleased with the launch of this new service, but I've also learnt a few lessons in the process. I spent a long time planning for the launch (which happened on 1st October this year), including an extended beta phase to work out all the details in the months leading up to the launch. I planned. I still had to rework things, and make changes to my set up. So you see, even when you research, plan, study, and then plan some more... things might not go to plan. Things came up that I hadn't considered when I initially worked out my pricing. I'll go into more detail about what goes into creating a cover and what you're paying for when you buy one in another blog post soon as it's an important topic, and will be useful for those of you considering ordering a book cover (whether it's a premade or a custom design).

I wanted to do a lot more marketing and promotion this year too. I did interviews, was hosted on various sites, etc... but not as much as I'd planned. I'll be doing a big blitz in December to help improve on this though. A virtual book tour for ALL of my published books. I'm putting together a mega media kit packed with info about all of my books. I'll let you know more details about the tour soon, but if you're interested in hosting me on your blog, or even on one of your social media profiles, please get in touch

So you see, this year has been full of successes, and failures.... but it's not over yet. I still have time to tick a few more things off that list. 

How was your 2017? Did you reach all your goals? What plans do you have to tick more off your list before the end of year? Let me know about your successes and failures of 2017.

Book Review: One Of Us Is Lying  by Karen M. McManus



Five students go to detention. Only four leave alive. 

For fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, this is the perfect high school thriller. Yale hopeful Bronwyn has never publicly broken a rule. Sports star Cooper only knows what he's doing in the baseball diamond. Bad body Nate is one misstep away from a life of crime. Prom queen Addy is holding together the cracks in her perfect life. And outsider Simon, creator of the notorious gossip app at Bayview High, won't ever talk about any of them again. He dies 24 hours before he could post their deepest secrets online. Investigators conclude it's no accident. All of them are suspects. Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you'll go to protect them.

Book Review: Second Honeymoon by James Patterson

Book Review: Second Honeymoon by James Patterson




A walk down the aisle, a resort hotel, a drink on the beach...for these unlucky couples, the honeymoon's over.

A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite--and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it's anyone's guess which happy couple is next on the list.
FBI Agent John O'Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common.
As wedding hysteria rises to a frightening new level, John and Sarah work ever more closely together in a frantic attempt to decipher the logic behind two rampages. SECOND HONEYMOON is James Patterson's most mesmerizing, most exciting, and most surprising thriller ever.

NaNoWriMo 2017 Word Count Tracker

10:47:00 Jo Linsdell 0 Comments

#NaNoWriMo 2017 Word Count Tracker


I'm still undecided about whether or not to participate in the NaNoWriMo challenge this November as I have several works in progress that I need to finish before starting another new one. There's still time for me to change my mind and jump in though. Wouldn't be the first year that I say I'm not going to do it, and then at the last minute start a new project. 

Anyway for those of you that have decided to take the plunge and reach for that 50K in 30 days goal next month, I have a little treat for you today: a NaNoWriMo 2017 Word Count Tracker!

#NaNoWriMo 2017 Word Count Tracker

Although the NaNoWriMo website has a word count tracker to help keep you on schedule, you might find a printable version helpful. That way you can turn off your internet and concentrate on your writing, and still have your daily goals in front of you. 

You can grab a free pdf copy here:


Good luck to all of you that are taking part this year. Even if I don't participate myself this year, I'll still be cheering you all on.
