As you can tell from the date of this post, I’m really on top of this whole New Year’s Resolution-thing.
Oh well, better late than never, right?
Anyway, I thought I’d post my Writing Resolutions for the year, so you can all help keep me accountable. As usual, I’m restricting my resolutions to things I can actually accomplish on my own (ie. I’m not putting ‘get an agent’ or ‘land a publishing deal’ because the only things I have control over is writing and submitting – not whether anyone likes it enough to sign me.)
I don’t have a lot of resolutions this year, but the ones I have aren’t exactly small, so it’ll be interesting to see how the next twelve months shape up.
2019 writing Resolutions
- Finish revising SHADOWCATCHERS (my MG Fantasy)
- Send SHADOWCATCHERS to my fabulous critique partner/beta reader
- Revise again
- Send SHADOWCATCHERS out to Canadian publishers
- Revise my Adult Urban Fantasy WiP
- Query it with agents
- Write something new
- Attend 1 conference
- Read more recent MG Fantasy
I’ve already made a start on the first – my goal is to finish revising SHADOWCATCHERS and send it to my crit partner by the end of the month. (Of course, it would help if my kids would stay healthy enough to actually attend school and give me time to write.)
I’ve also made a list of 2018 MG Fantasies I want to read, and started requesting them at the library. Unfortunately not many are available as audiobooks, so I might be a bit slow plowing through those.
Well, that’s it for my list. Post yours in the comments so we can cheer you on, too.
