Rebel Writer's Pledge
First I want to thank Sheri Larsen for putting this blog hop together.
The Rebel Writer's Pledge is for us to look back on our successes and failures of 2011, and then move into this year with new goals and perspective.
Last year, I was in college, finishing my degree. (Which I finally got! Woohoo!) I didn't get anything published last year because I felt a bit over whelmed with school (where as the year before I had two short stories out there). So this year with everything finished and done, I'm up to the challenge.
So here are my writing goals for this year:
1. Treat my writing career as a job, not so much as a hobby. My crit group had a very cool author visit us this week. When I asked about his schedule, he said that he works eight hours a day, just like he was at an office job. I need to do more of that.
2. Block out time for writing and get it done. I think this goes along with #1, but it would sure help me get the writing done.
3. Send out my ms for query.I had planned on this last year, but with school, I put it off. No more putting it off. This is the year.
4. Go to that awesome writer's camp this November (I'll tell you more about it the closer it gets).
Those are my goals! Yay Rebel Writers! Now let's get this year going!
Good luck with your writing goals this year! It's going to be a great one.
