It’s been a few years since I made a real New Year’s resolution. Mostly, that’s because resolutions don’t usually work. You stick with it for a few months, then forget about it.
In 2019, however, I have some goals for myself and I think setting some resolutions, and telling other people about it, will help me get them accomplished.
#1: I will do a Writer Wednesday blog post twice a month.
I’d like to post more writing-related content on my blog, things like:
- writer advice
- writing prompts
- updates on my writing/publishing journey
I’m open to any suggestions of other writerly content I could offer.
#2: I will participate in a group blog.
This one is already in the works, and I’ll let you know once it begins happening!
#1: I will send out 4 queries a month.
A number of years ago, I made a resolution to get 100 rejections. This time, I want to focus on sending out really polished query letters and clean manuscripts.
I’ll be focusing my attentions on Waiting Room, until I revise a few of my others.
#2: Revise The Victim’s Ball
I have some big ideas for changes I want to make to this manuscript. Maybe this is more of a writing goal than a resolution? I keep writing and never revising so maybe a resolution is in order.
#3: Finish The Blood Countess
I recently bought several books so I could do some more research, and I think I’ll be using a Camp Nanowrimo to complete this draft, which is somewhere around 40K words.
#4: Finish We Live in the Dark
My 2018 Nanowrimo novel is in pieces, and my goal is to slowly revise it and finish it as I post it weekly over on Wattpad.
SO YEAH. Six resolutions! Stay tuned for updates on each of these to know if I manage to follow through.
Have you made any writing-related resolutions for 2019? Tell me about them in the comments!
