Now that you're done envisioning an over-enthusiastic futbol announcer, let’s kick in the New Year with some shiny new writing goals, shall we?
I stumbled across my 2012 goals while cleaning out my room over the holiday break (shows you how much I looked at them throughout the year, doesn’t it?). But, guess what? I did pretty good. Of my two biggest goals—I achieved them both.
You know what else though? I realized I’m just a tad overambitious. See, those goals were two of about eight. I’d actually planned to draft two or three novels. Um, yeah. I did one.
So…this year, I’m reining in the focus. Not too long ago, I read this fantastic quote about making resolutions:
There are only two resolutions that matter.
1) Keep going
2) Pray more
That’s how I want to measure this next year.
And, just for fun, I picked three (only three!) specific writing goals:
- Complete a draft of Rules of Valor book 1
- Query Windfarer and Rain Reader
- Continue blogging and short story marketing
