I am Resolved

I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions. I try to have revolving goals throughout the year. But I thought that I would sit down this year and contemplate what I would like to accomplish in the year ahead - especially with my writing. So, if you don't mind I would like to share with you my resolutions, both for writing and my personal life.


I want to have the first draft of Three of Ivory finished by the middle of 2012. And I would like to have it *almost* ready to begin querying by the end of the year.

I plan to submit Shadowed Stones to at least two publishers next year. More if I can squeeze them in.

I want to attend at least one writing conference and love it!

And I want to keep up with my blogging.


Lose weight. Okay, I know most people out there are in this same boat. If you are not - good for you! But over the past few years I have really struggle with me weight and it is affecting my health. So by the end of next year I WILL have reached my target weight.

I used to write a journal entry every day. This is something that I have gotten out of the habit of doing - and I want to get that back. So I am going to start with writing in my journal once a week and see how that goes.

I am terrible at keeping up with my house work. I want to be better at it so I don't feel so guilty when I sit down to write.


I am very devoted to my religion, but as in all things in life - I could be doing better. I want to be more faithful, give more service, and do more.

Do you have any new years resolutions?


  1. I usually don't make resolutions either, but I need to schedule myself this year with a small toddler running around. I have a few writing goals with revising and writing short stories. I also want to lose weight. It's going to be very hard for me to give up my cookies!

    Good luck and happy new year!

  2. I'm not the New-Year-Resolution type of gal!
    I prefer to set small, realistic, attainable goals as a start...
    Hope you have an awesome 2012... may all your writerly dreams come true...

  3. Those are some great goals! I'm now off to go make sure that I write mine! :) Have a happy new year! :)
