New Year Writing Resolutions

I should imagine like most of the normal resolutions I make I shall have broken most of these within the first week but here goes – I always make my resolutions in tens that way I might keep one hehehe

1)  Complete post a day for my blog in 2013

2)  Upgrade my blog so that I own the domain name

3)  Invest in Scrivener – my trial is nearly up have had to cheat to stretch it our by using word for some early drafting

4)  Complete a minimum of three writing exercises per week and keep my sensory journal adding one thing per day

5)  Be more realistic about reading other blogs, accept sometime you cannot read everything no matter how much you would want to – to ensure I do this I shall clear my inbox at the end of each day

6)  Write a minimum of 1000 words (including blog posts per day)

7)  Do my personal NaNo challenge in January

8)  Do NaNo in November

9)  Try to find a writing group I can join up with either locally or online

10) Learn to believe in my writing

Okay so that’s the resolutions next up the project list for the next twelve months – I may regret this one as I can see it growing

1) Publish Voices Across The Void

2) Edit Queen of Ages and begin submitting to agents and publishers

3) Begin drafting second part of trilogy

4) Research for final part of trilogy

5) Research for postapocalyptic novel based on the idea I mentioned before

6) Second collection of ghost storys based on the extra ones from VATV

It looks like a busy year ahead and I look forward to continuing to share my journey with you all.

  4. Good luck. I do have to say that my life changed when I finally gave in and paid the $18 and bought my own domain name. I don’t know why, but it gave me more credibility with myself. Like I was SERIOUS! 🙂
