Before I forget to mention this, don't forget to sign up for the Official No-Kiss Blogfest over at Frankie's blog. Put your name in the Mr. Linky so we can all check out your fabulous almost kissing scene. *Smacks self on forehead because I just realized that I don't have an almost kiss scene in my WIP so I've got to write one today*
Moving on...I'm so glad that 2010 is finally here. Not that 2009 was a bad year. Really, it wasn't. After all, it's the year I started writing:) But there's something about the promise a new year brings. So many things we can dream about and potentially do because this chapter of our lives is still unwritten.
So in honor of the awesomeness that 2010 is sure to bring, I am going to officially declare my goals. To keep things simple, I'm going to divide mine into two categories.
Things That I Can Control
*I will try to write every day. Every. Single. Day. I'm not gonna put a word count on it because some days I'm doing good to get 500 words, so will leave it at that.
*I will post my total word count once a week on this blog (ya know, the accountability thing).
*Finish my WIP before March. (I sooo wish I could do this by the end of January, but I've discovered that I'm NOT a fast writer).
*Have revisions complete by June (keeps fingers crossed on this one).
*Make sure my WIP is the best it can possible be before I even THINK about querying it.
*Learn how to write a query letter and a synopsis.
*If I feel that my WIP is good enough (ie. not a trunk novel), I will query agents (again, not gonna put a time frame on this one, sometime this year is good enough).
*I will start another book and try to have it complete before the year ends.
*Save, save, save, and save some more money so I can attend a writer's conference. (Would really LOVE to go to the SCBWI conference this summer).
Things That I REALLY Want To Happen ( Or Things I Have No Control Over)
*Snag the most awesome agent ever (Who could that be?)
*Have a huge bidding war over my book (and the two unwritten sequels)
*Get a ginormous advance for my series.
*Sell movie rights to my book and have major Hollywood actors/actresses fighting to get a part in it.
Okay, now that you've had your laugh for the day, what do you wish could happen in 2010? And are you up for the No-Kiss Blogfest?
