My Writing Resolutions

Last year, my writing goals were:

Write three stories this year. (I did it! Sofie and the Night Eagle, Star Blessed, and Consecrated. Okay, I'm not done with Consecrated, but I'm close, and I also revised a novel!)

Keep all stories in the mail at all times. (Did this, too! I didn't sell anything, though. :( I also decided to stop submitting The Bearer's Oath for the time being because there aren't any good novella markets.)

Complete a writing task daily. (If you are very generous with your definition of a writing task, then yes, I accomplished this, too.)

My 2009 writing goals are:

Write a novel.

Submit my first novel and keep submitting it until it is sold.

Submit the Christmas story collection.

Keep all stories/novels in the mail all the time. (I'll have to sell something eventually!)

Complete a writing task daily.

I would love to hear about any of your writing goals and hopes and dreams.

I've been catching up on some reading over the long weekend and I finally read Briery's Lilies and Soul Singer! You are so talented! I loved them both, but Brierly's Lilies made my favorites list! It's fantastic! Thanks for sharing your talents!
