Resolutions? Back to Blog
Is the year really at an end already? Wow, this year has truly flown by. (I need time to slow down a bit for me.) December 31st is here, and I haven’t even made my resolutions for 2010 yet. Gah!
I did some digging and found my resolution post from last year. This is what I said I wanted to accomplish for 2009:
1. Four novels. I can do this. I know I can.
2. One novella. I love writing novellas, especially after I’ve written a 90,000+ page manuscript. It is such a nice change of pace for me.
Did I do this? YES!!! I did write four novels, I did write one novella, and, actually, I’m 300 pages into another novel (one that I have to finish my Jan. 15 so I’m gonna be a busy writing chick).
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to branch into a new sub-genre in 2009. I love romantic suspense, so I was very happy to write those stories (and DEADLY FEAR, my first romantic suspense with GCP, will be out in August of 2010). I was also thrilled to keep writing my paranormals. Oh, I do love those monsters and men.
So as I look ahead to 2010, my writing goals really will not change much. I’ll still aim for
1. Four novels
2. One novella
But I’ll also branch out a bit and add a few more resolutions, particularly one that focuses on reading. You see, my reading time has plummeted. At one point, I had a romance book club, but, very sadly, I haven’t been able to participate in that club in a while. I LOVE reading my romances, so I’m making it a resolution to:
3. Read a book every two weeks.
Sure, this may not seem like a lot to you, but, I was once a woman who read a book a day. Does that tell you how my writing time has dwindled? Now, I’m a hoarder. I buy the books, keep them in an enormous TBR pile, then read straight for two or three days to catch up. My goal is to space out that reading.
I also have a goal to:
4. Travel more.
I like to travel.
There we go. A semi-list for me.
What are your resolutions for 2010? Please, share!!! And have a safe and happy new year’s celebration!Tweet It
