I know it's the second week of February, but I'm terrible at setting goals and keeping them. So here are mine. First is to blog more this year. I'm part of a historical blog - I'm the YA voice for it - and it keeps me blogging twice a month, but I've neglected my own blog.
And my major goal is to finish my second MSS and have it ready to pitch in June at a NJ SCBWI conference. That means I have to maintain at least 1000 words a day. Since I handwrite everything first, that really equates to 2000 every day. :)
Hello all! I've been a member of YALitChat for awhile. After having a set back from an illness and then having to write my thesis to graduate from grad school, I am back!
Goals for 2011:
*Write 1000 words a day and to finish my first (and hopefully second) draft of my current WIP.
*Start a blog this year.
I read 132 books last year, and my goal for 2011 is 150.
*Support fellow writers with their 2011 goals and resolutions =)
I suppose I have to update my writing goals since things have changed.
*I'm signing up for Wordpress' BlogAWeek thingy -- between my three main blogs, I'll blog twice a week on each, which works perfectly b/c I always take Tuesdays off of work
*I'm going to write my nonfiction book based on the query and proposal I have -- I no longer need to acquire an agent, so I can just write the book :D
*Write the sequel to Avalon since I don't have to rewrite Avalon itself anymore, so I'm excited about that!!
*everything else with writing and editing should stay about the same... (6 posts below...)
2011 is going to be a good year. I feel it already!!! =D
Hello! I'm new to YALITCHAT, but I sure need support with my 2011 writing goals. They are: Keep blogging at least twice a month, organize at least one interview or book giveaway for my blog each month, oh...and FINALLY FINISH my YA WIP manuscript! (At least a first draft that can then live under my bed while I write something else!) Looking forward to getting to know you here at YALITCHAT!
