Okay, ,yeah, with a new year, you get the post about what I hope to accomplish in the coming year. Truth is, I always do better when I write things down, and this way I have to hold myself at least a little bit accountable, right?
So, I’ve got a release next month! (watch this space for buy links and cover reveals and stuff ;)) And my goal is not to have a freaking melt down when it happens. Right? I’m really excited, and I can’t wait for you guys to meet Will and Joshua, but I’m completely nervous about it too. This pair have a special place in my heart and they’ve been a year in the making, so I can’t wait for them to be out there. It’s a short novella, and there’s a part of me that worries about that a bit. But yeah, my goal is not to freak.
I have a more immediate goal of submitting my next story. That never gets easier, it really doesn’t, so I have to work up to it a little bit. You want to talk about a special place in my heart? This story has one there, and it won’t ever leave. I’m perfectly okay with that. But yeah, I’ve got to do the final touches on it, and write the synopsis, and then pull up my big girl panties and send it in. My goal is to do that within the next week.
Other than that, it’s writing. Of course. Right? There’s always a story going on in my head, and the next one is actually swimming around in there quite nicely. Well, the beginning of it, of course. I know, in explicit detail, how it starts. Not quite sure, yet, how these boys get to their end. I’ll work on that, though. And we’ll see what happens. But before I get to that, I have a WIP that’s a little less than half on the page, and that one is going to get my attention first.
And I need to be a little bit better, as always, about managing my time. Because I get sucked into one thing, and the rest falls by the wayside. And that’s never a good thing. The yarn things I do help to keep me focused, so I have to make more time for that. And always reading, my first love. So there will be an attempt at a time budget again, and I’ll see if this time I can actually make it stick.
So that’s the goals for me! Hope everyone has had a splendid New Year, and may this year bring you everything you want and need. And if you’re the sort to make resolutions/goals, I wish you luck in sticking to them! 🙂
