Happy New Year- 2011!!!
It’s a brand spankin’ new, purty year folks! Shiny with new possibilities. Resolutions? Not for me. I make them and promptly break them. But I will say I have a few goals set for myself this year.
I want to get published. I know you know this, but in order for me to accomplish this goal there are several steps I have to take. Other than submitting the two already subbed mss. So, I plan to take more workshops on craft this year. One can never learn too much, right?
I plan (insert resolve) to finish my wolf series this year, or at least one of the three already-planned ones (which you can read about from my guest spot on Gale Stanley’s blog). If these stay short (under 20K words) I may be able to realistically finish all three in a year. If not and they go over 30K, then it would be unrealistic to say I will, when I won’t. So, depending on how long they run, determines how my querying goes. But I do plan to query this series out this year.
I plan to write book two to Healing Whispers. Book two is Garrett Star’s story. You will remember him (if book one sells and you read it) because Garrett is Tobi’s Vulcan-riding (a hot-ass motorcycle, for those who don’t know what this is) cousin. And again, if you ever get the chance to read book one (it must sell!), you’ll recognize the heroine in book two. Sara is Garrett’s former high school/college sweetheart, and Tobi’s bff, who works at the Ryan Bank & Trust. I thought these two deserve their own HEA since Sara’s a sad woman in book one and Garrett’s something of a jerk who needs reforming. And who better to reform the bad-boy than his first love?
Also, on the agenda, is a new medical. It’s a Christmas story of hope, and renewed faith in the holiday spirit. More on this one as I get it written. Pass the plotting stage. I know, you’re thinking “you’re a panster, you don’t plot”, but I’m giving that a whirl this year too. I’ve tried, and failed, in the past, so we’ll see how it goes with a determined effort.
So, that’s a few of my goals this bright new year. What about you? Any specific resolutions, or goals you’ve set to accomplish for 2011?
