Did you make a resolution this year? Some years I do, but most I don’t. This year and last I made goals instead.
For the most part, I met my goals for last year.
*I came up with something of a five-year plan. Where do I see myself as an author in five years?
*I rewrote and sold my paranormal suspense, A Hunter’s Angel.
*I didn’t sell either of my contemporary Westerns, The Long Road Home or Butterfly.
*I didn’t finish A Family for Jesse…BUT instead….
*I wrote book 2 the Hunter’s Dagger series, A Hunter’s Blade (I didn’t even have this as a goal at the beginning of the year, but after my sale of book 1, I made it an immediate goal.)
For 2012 my goals are more focused.
*Submit A Hunter’s Blade to my editor at The Wild Rose Press.
*Finish rewriting The Long Road Home for a different editor at The Wild Rose Press who gave me a revise/resubmit option with a rejection.
*Write A Hunter’s Wing (Book 3 of the Hunter’s Dagger series).
*Finish A Family for Jesse and submit it.
*Promote the heck out of A Hunter’s Angel when it’s released later this year.
*Figure out a plan for self-publishing Butterfly and The Hardest Words to Say (Books 1 and 2 of The Cowboys of Colton)—find a content editor and cover artist.
*Start writing A Wife’s Dying Wish (Book 3 of The Cowboys of Colton).
*Continue my duties as the Communications Committee Chair for the RWA and as webmistress for my local RWA chapter.
*Blog more—at least twice a month.
*Eat better and take better care of myself.
*Don’t let the day job drive me crazy.
*Plant a memorial garden in memory of my brother who passed away in September.
*Remember to smell the roses when they’re blooming and enjoy my garden more this summer!
Now, what are your goals for the coming year?
