My Literary New Year’s Resolutions
Today is the first working day of the New Year and so now it is time for all good writers to declare their goals for the New Year. Before making your New Year’s resolution, you might want to consider whether your goals are attainable or not. Jane Lebak underscores the point perfectly in today’s blog over at QueryTracker.net. Here, she makes the point that for writers there are two kinds of goals you can set for yourself. One type, such as completing the rough draft of your novel, you can complete all by yourself. On the other hand, there are some things, such as finding an agent and publishing a novel that require the consent and cooperation of others. It is probable best to not get the two items confused.
Taking the above comments into account here are my writing goals for 2011.
1. Write or complete one short story every month.
2. Finish my WIP by the end of the year.
3. Blog at least three times a week.
4. Submit one article per week to a periodical publication.
Best of luck and Happy New Year,
P.S. If you complete all your first of the year resolutions, Miss Clause may pay you a visit during the December Yuletide season.
