2009 Goals - January Review
So, here are the goals I made for 2009 and their present status...
Write new outlined book by May or June:
Hard to say if / when I'll achieve this, but I'm working on it. If I can write 3,000 words a week or so, I beleive I'll make it.
Edit / Revise / Beta-read by September:
Start querying in September (if ready):
NaNoWriMo 2009 through November:
Still planning on it.
Continue querying and working on NaNo manuscript if I'm happy with it.
Up in the air until then...
Buy and read at least two or three books a month:
This one has started off bad. I've re-read three books and started one new one but I won't have two *new* books read by tomorrow. I plan on catching up in February.
Continue to learn about writing / publishing:
Continue blogging regularly:
I think I've been pretty good about this.
Start doing book reviews on blog:
I haven't done one yet but I still plan on it.
Post a teaser or something for critique every few months at least:
I posted a small "teaser," which I've since changed a bit. My first. Woo! Thank you for all the input that was given.
Focus on overcoming weaknesses and issues found in 2008:
The main one is finishing what I start. I'm trying!
Review this list every month:
Done for January!
It's only the first month, but I think I'm relatively on target so far.
