The Start of Something New

It's that time of year again! The time of year when many sit down and come up with goals or resolutions for the coming year.

I'm actually not a goal-setter. I don't recall making resolutions before, and if I did, I certainly never wrote them down. However, I think I'm ready to take that step this year. I may even come back and cross them off as I accomplish them. ;-)

Per Maggie Stiefvater's recommendations (on her own recent goal setting blog post, which was awesome, by the way…go read it) I am going to try to stick to goals that I can control.

My goals for 2010:

1. Finish YA WIP (was supposed to be my NaNo novel, but I never got further than 1K - lol).

2. Revise other YA again and submit (I'm letting it sit right now).

3. Draft other YA idea.

4. Polish at least three PBs and submit.

5. Blog at least once per week.

My two goals for next year that I can't control are to get an agent and to get something published.

Here is a great article on writing resolutions, too:

So, what are your writerly goals for 2010? Let's cheer each other on!

  1. Great goals Larissa.

    My writing goals are to finish my YA, finish my MG, and query both. I'm also striving to hook an agent this year. :) (pun totally intended because my YA does have fishing and lives depend on it!!)
