We're just hours away from beginning a new year and that's got me thinking.
2014 was an awesome year and I'd love for 2015 to be the same, but I need to amp up my game. And to do that, I'm making a few resolutions
Usually I don't do the whole resolution thing, mainly because I can't keep them, but this year I'm thinking of making a few. All of them writing related.
1. FINISH A BOOK
Any book will do (as I have several in various stages of incompletion- mystery, paranormal, etc.)-
but mainly books two and three in the True Blue Trilogy- Faith and Hope certainly need to have their stories told.
(I've been doing some research on plot structure and organization that I'm hoping will help- I'm also hoping to do a few posts on this in the future if they work.)
2. SUBMIT BOOK FOR CONSIDERATION
Being a multi-published author is my dream. It's what I want to do when I grow up. So hopefully I'll get my literary brain together soon enough to
1.Finish a book
2. Submit said book for what will hopefully another contract.
Which leads us to the 3rd and ultimate goal.
3. PUBLISH A BOOK
Because how else will I become multi-published if I don't get published!!!
4. DO BETTER AT ADVERTISING
This one is the hardest of all. I hate tooting my own horn. In most cases I don't enjoy drawing attention to myself. I prefer to stay under the radar, just doing my own thing. Can we say agoraphobic? Because that's not really much of a stretch.
But I'm am realistic enough to know that if I don't step out more, visit more blogs,
get more publicity, then I won't be able to make writing a profitable career!!
And that's it, my short but very heavy load.
I'd love to hear what your New Year resolutions might be and if you have any advice on how I can make my resolutions a reality.
