It hardly seems possible but yet another year has flown by! I'm looking forward to 2012 and although I don't make resolutions I do like to reassess where I am and what I hope to achieve in the coming twelve months. So, urged on by fabulous Carina Press author Rachael Johns, I'm making a list of my goals. The reasoning behind this is if they're out there, then I'm accountable!
So here we go:
Finish the revisions on the first book in my new Berkley series (I have an end of January deadline for this one)
Edit and polish my Highland Warrior book
Finish writing book 2 in my new series (I have about 25k left to go on this one)
Finish writing book 3 in the Forbidden series (I've only written 30k on this one, so have a long way to go!!)
Either - start the second book in my Highland Warrior series ~or~ start book 3 in my new series.
Keep the mess on my desk under control. Not at ALL sure about this goal, sounds like an impossible ask! Because once I start on my desk it shows up how untidy my bookshelves are, which in turn makes me realise how cluttered the entire floor is as well!!!
Now for the dreams, because we all need to have our dreams!
Would love to make the Gold Coast conference in 2012 *keeping every available digit crossed* I couldn't make the conference this year, although it was huge fun texting with the gorgeous Alli Sinclair from Novel Adventurers on Awards Night!
Attend a weekend writers retreat with my awesome CPs, Amanda Ashby and Sara Hantz.. I'm not convinced we'd get a great deal of writing done but we'd certainly knock back a lot of bubbly and... brainstorm! (because that sounds more writerly than gossiping, heh heh)
What are your goals/resolutions and/or dreams for 2012?
