Happy New Year

Hi all. Hope your New Year's off to a good start. Sorry I missed the holidays. I went to visit my cousin, which meant lots of good food and too many art museums, but also no Internet. I hope you had a good holiday season as well.

Now, we all know what New Years means: New Year's Resolutions!

And just like usual, I like posting my goals online. Makes me feel accountable. I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours. ;-)

Writing Resolution
  • Edit and revise Thief Book, Cordamant's Heir, and Legal Aliens. (That's right. Nothing new. Just making myself get the old stuff done.)
  • Mini Goal: Edit 1k words a day.
  • Read 65+ books this year.
  • Read Complete Works of William Shakespeare (This is the one where we know I've lost my bloody mind. Will count watching it as reading it.)
  • Read the Bible cover to cover. (Yes, I've lost my mind. But, after years of my Dad telling me I need to understand the Bible to be educated in Western culture, I've succumbed and will actually read it all.)
  • Post 3 times a week. Most likely MWF, but we'll see.
  • Get back into the blogosphere and read more blogs.

We'll see how all that goes. Probably, I've lost my mind. How are you doing? What are your resolutions?


  1. Happy New Year. And yes, I think you have lost your mind. Shakespeare!!!

    No resolutions except to get an agent. But that involves more praying than anything else so maybe I should read the Bible too.

  2. Really all of Shakespear. I'd be impressed if you told me you were going to read one per year until done. (In fact I might make that a goal for myself.)

    My writing resolution: To query 3 projects
    My life resolution: To get closer to God, (so reading the bible might be good for me too.)
    My health resolution: To lose the 20 lbs I found over the past few months, and get back to the gym 28 days per month.

  3. Happy New Year! I'm working on my goals for 2011. I haven't quite narrowed them down, but I hope to by the end of the week. You have some good ones!

  4. Very admirable goals! Writing, Shakespeare and the Bible. You go girl!!!

  5. You have lost your mind...but it went to a wonderful place! Good luck with your goals in 2011, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)

  6. Anne -- Good luck!

    Melissa -- I'm helped along by a ridiculous interest in Shakespeare and obsessive geek bravado. You've got some very impressive goals yourself.

    Susan -- Good luck with your goals, the setting and the achieving.

    Kathi -- Well, we'll see how it goes. ;)

    DL -- It went to a special place. We'll leave it at that. Happy New Year.
