They often say that the things you do on New Years Day shape the rest of the year. Judging by the day I’ve had I should expect to have a great one. DH cooked dinner, the kids didn’t squabble too much and we just puttered around the house. I really like those kinds of days.
Like every writer I know I’ve been contemplating my goals for the year. Last year I didn’t set specific writing targets but I dubbed it the “year of no excuses”. That worked for me – I wrote heaps; 1 novel, 2 novella’s, 1 novelette not to mention editing two slightly older novels, blogging and critiquing. Whew it has been quite a year for output.
2010 is my year to focus, to polish and with luck be published. Admittedly, being accepted for publication is completely out of my hands but I am hopeful. If I focus on editing, and write the new material that keep spinning around my brain, my chances are good that something will appeal to an editor. At least that’s the plan…
Oops sorry had to run off to the post new year recovery party in the RW Australia chat room… those cabana boys might be there.
Focus, Heather, focus. LOL. So what is on the agenda for this quarter. Final edits on a novel, novella and starting work on a new regency series based around a brothel. That should be fun and my first attempt at not writing a happy ever after for the main characters.
Hope everyone has had a safe New Year and reaches the goals they set for themselves.
