2012 Goals

I did this last year and, although I did not even complete half of my 2011 goals, they were helpful in keeping me on track when I decided to do something writing-related. Here are a few things I would like to get done this coming year...

2012 Writing Goals:

1. Edit Shiloh's Children well enough to show family and friends. Hmm... deja vue, anyone? Maybe that's because this was my goal last year too. And guess what? I didn't do it. This year, however, I have more incentive. I promised my parents that I would not do NaNoWriMo 2012 unless I edited a novel first. So, I must get this goal done, and soon, if I want to do NaNoWriMo for my fourth year in a row.

2. Enter at least 11 pieces into contests or to publishers. Last year, my goals was to enter 10 writing contests. I later expanded that goal to include works submitted for publication. I only entered 6 (and I didn't even blog about the sixth entry). This year I'm going for 11. One a month (minus NaNoWriMo month) is doable. I just have to, you know... do it.

3. Enter and win NaNoWriMo2012. I can not tell you how much I want to accomplish this goal! I love NaNoWriMo. But to enter and win, I have to accomplish my first goal. So, I guess I should get started on that, yes? Yes, I think so...

Happy New Year, everyone! Happy writing wishes to all of my writing friends and reading wishes to everyone else!
