Read Around the Rainbow | Do You Have a Writing Plan for Next Year?


Every month, we’re a group of authors who write a Read Around the Rainbow post. What that means is that we blog on the same theme, and this month that is:

Do you have a writing plan for next year?

Normally, I’m way farther ahead at this point than I am this year, so I’m a little worried about how 2023 will go. It’s been a rough autumn, so I haven’t had as much time in front of the screen as I normally do. And when I’ve been in front of the screen, I haven’t always been there mentally, so it’s been a bit of a struggle.

But let’s focus on the positive!

I have a goal. For 24 months now, I’ve managed to have a release a month, and as insane as it sounds, I want to continue that way. So it’s my goal for 2023 as well. 12 stories in 12 months.

I’m not entirely sure I’ll be able to pull it off because as I mentioned above, I’m normally (as if I’ve done this for a long time 😆) farther ahead. I’m working on Holly’s March story at the moment, and I have a story scheduled with my lovely publisher in April too. I’ve signed up for the JMS Books Advent Calendar 2023, so I have a story booked in December as well.

So… I need some uninterrupted arse in the chair time. The kids are off school for another two weeks, so it’s unlikely to happen 🙄

Back in May, we did a collaboration. Nell Iris, A.L. Lester, K.L. Noone, Amy Spector, and I wrote a story each for World Naked Gardening Day. I would love to do something like that again, and we’ve loosely talked about it, but nothing has been decided, so we’ll see.


So, yeah, so far the plan is:

January – National Squirrel Appreciation Day

February – World Nutella Day

March – U.S. National Soup it Forward Day

April – National Tell a Story Day




August – National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day (Maybe, not cleared with JMS yet)




December – National Chocolate Candy Day (Maybe, unless another idea pops up)

So shall we call that half a plan? Almost.
