I'm back from spending the holidays in Hawaii with the fam to consistent subzero temperatures at home...but that's okay. I'm refreshed and ready for the new year and everything it will bring.
I sure wish it was this kind of ice we came home to. :)
I've been reflecting on all I've accomplished last year and what I hope to this year. I even found this post with my 2012 writing goals. Here's how I did:
1. Read 50 books--Yep. Got that one in just in time.
2. Query 2 books--Yes. And the second one landed me an agent, so yay!
3. Draft 1 book--Done. In fact, I ended up drafting 2! :)
4. Study/read writing craft books 1 hr. a week--Um...no. I only read 4 craft books in all. BUT I attended 3 writers conferences, critiqued tons of manuscripts, and spent an embarrassing amount of time online honing my craft, so I don't feel so bad about this one.
Not too shabby, I think. My writing goals this year are simple:
1. Revise my Nano book.
2. Draft 1 book.
That's it. No specific reading goals (except to try and not feel so guilty when I take time out to read). I already signed up for the Storymakers conference in May...so excited for that! Since I'll probably be going on submission some time this year, I'd LOVE to get a book deal, but since I can't really control that, I'm gonna focus on writing and enjoying it.
What are some of your goals for 2013? I hope your dreams come true--Bruddah Iz style...
