Happy New Year! My goals.

So here it is. The kids are at school. The husband is at work. It's just me, my dog and my two cats. Ahhhh, quiet.

Now I have no excuses. It's time to get to work! First stop: Goal Setting

Debbie's Writing Goals for 2013

  • Polish 2 MS (PB) by the end of January and begin subbing
  • Polish 2 more in Feb. with a goal with 12 polished PB by the end of 2013.
  • Find an editorial agent in 2013 who will appreciate who I am as an author, but also be able to guide me. I am a quick learner and love constructive feedback.
  • Sell "Mad Kid Scientist"
  • Get a stronger local SCBWI chapter build up.
  • Finish my MG novel by May
  • Focus on writing every day, even if it's just 20 minutes on some days (I prefer long chunks of time, but know that is unreasonable on most days)
  • Start freelance writing again
  • Read, read, read!
  • Blog at least twice a week
There we have it. Since I am now publishing this to the world, I am forced to hold myself accountable.

It's gonna be a good, good year!

  1. Ambitious goals! Good luck. I'm going to stop biting my nails and teach my dog to fetch. Now that I've published THIS to the world..... it's proof positive that I am an underachiever!! :)
