I hate making resolutions. Because any resolution I make on January 1st gets broken by the start of the second week. This year I have decided to do a few things. Let’s call them my writing goals.
This year I want to write more than one book. I have already started the book that was inspired by Penny on Gary’s (Klahanie's blog.) So far the plot and the characters have been jumping around inside my head. I am done with the first chapter. The entire story is quite clear in my mind. The characters' personalities are taking shape in my mind. Its ages since I have been so excited about any story.
I also want to try other options if the traditional route is not happening for a particular book. Its time I moved away from that book. It’s caused me enough emotional distress.
I want to read as many books as I can, across genres and age groups. I have started reading from the Christmas holidays and getting engrossed in another writer’s words is exciting and soothing. Reading always relaxes me and motivates me.
I also want to write a little every day, so that by the end of the month I have made some progress with my story. Sometimes, when life interrupts I am unable to write, but I plan to change that and write come what may.
