My friend Liz wrote a post about her resolutions this week. As a fellow writer and mom, Liz pretty much nails the resolutions (with the exception of the triathlon--Liz, it's all yours. LOL). But I'm inspired to reflect on 2010 and think about the new year.
2010 has been a good year for my writing career. My first work-for-hire book was published last spring. I was assigned four new titles. I started querying my first Young Adult novel to literary agents--and got some good feedback. I can only hope that 2011 will build on that success.
1. First and foremost, I need to be better at trying to write every day. I have a tendency to finish a project, and then "rest." I've pretty much taken the last six weeks "off" from writing after I finished my last work-for-hire project. #wastingtime. I need to ramp up again and write, even if it's bad writing.
2. I still have three partials and one full manuscript out from querying last summer and fall. I need to think about revisions on the novel and decide if I should keep querying or make significant changes. Jury is still out.
3. I'd like to get some more work-for-hire contracts and continue to write non fiction.
So to sum it up...write every day...get an agent...publish more nonfiction. And oh yeah, lose ten pounds. Bring on 2011!
