So I haven't been on Blogger for a while, and it feels like it's been quite a while since I was on my computer at all. But it is a new year, so I suppose resolutions are in order. Not that the time of year makes a difference, but I think it's a good idea to look over the year and set goals, particularly when one has lots of stuff going on. Now's as good a time as any.
So I looked over my goals from last year, and I accomplished some of what I set out to do, but not everything.
So for 2008:
I finished one round of edits, and half of another, so firstly, finish the rest of that editing, and start querying agents.
I've already done a little research into which agents might be a good fit, now I need to narrow it down and organize myself, make sure I know which ones prefer email queries versus hard copy.
Survive my second and third semesters of graduate school (this spring I have two classes, one after the other, on Tuesdays and one on Fridays).
Finish the first draft of at least one of the two big stories I started last year--the urban fantasy or the pirate-ish maybe-YA fiction.
Plan out the plot/story arc for book two of the story I'm currently editing.
Here's to the new year, people.
And Writtenwyrdd, thanks for the New Year's wishes in the comments below.
