In Which I Make Goals … Not Resolutions2
This December has been probably one of the most chaotic and jam-packed ones I’ve had in quite a while. As it (and 2011) draws to a close, I find myself looking forward to January and a fresh start.
I’m not a big fan of resolutions. I’m not sure why … maybe it’s the stigma around people “dropping” them by February … or perhaps it’s the idea that they seem so nebulous and never-ending.
Instead I make goals. Small term (January) and long term (2012). To keep myself on track, I’ll share my writing goals with you!
- Write 6 days a week.
- Block my day so I can focus on concrete tasks.
- Complete and edit 2 manuscripts.
- Become agented.
- Read at least a dozen books outside of my genre.
Yes. I realize these sound like resolutions. But hopefully these are goals I will reach. What about you?
