New Year Goals - 2013

Welcome to 2013! The predictions were wrong and the world didn't end in 2012, thankfully. It could not end. Not with Kimberly's and Toni's books releasing this year!  Of course, it being a new year I began thinking about my resolutions for the year.

It didn't take me long to realize everything on my list had something to do with writing. I looked at my current WIPs and began a realistic list of what I want and need to accomplish. I also sat down with my Goodreads to-read list, which is insanely long, and picked out books I definitely want to read this year.

Also, since I didn't meet all my goals last year I decided I needed a new way to keep myself accountable this year. So, I thought I could list my goals here at the beginning of the year and then revisit them at the end of the year. Maybe this will be what I need to meet all of my goals this year. And I would love to hear what your goals are. Let's try to keep each other accountable this year.

Here's my list:

  • Polish off WIP3. I had hoped to have this done by December, but life and health issues got in my way. 
  • Query WIP3. Again I wanted to have this one on submission already, but as I said above, life got in the way.
  • Participate in NaNoWriMo - I participated in 2010 & 2011, but bowed out this past year to polish off WIP3 and had withdrawals. I have several projects swimming around in my mind for this year. 
  • Read at least 50 books. This list can be found on my personal blog, and it's way more than 50 books. Chances are I will deviate from this list, as I tend to do every year. lol 
 What are your writing / reading goals for 2013?


  1. Sound like good goals ;-) Can I share yours?

  2. Great goals! 2013 will be an amazing year! Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New Year to you too, Kelley! :-)
