Happy New Year! I hope everyone was able to bring it in with a smash. Or, at the very least, a smashing new story if you decided to stay in =)
I gave up making resolutions long ago. I enjoy celebrating the new year but it's just not a big enough holiday in my mind to make me feel any sort of guilt about breaking resolutions I made mere hours before. But goals I can do. At least they help me to stay on track and keep a good pace.
Life goals are too vague. Plus I usually forget about them a week later. But I thought some New Year's writing goals might be nice. So here are some things I'd like to get done in 2012 before the Mayan apocalypse occurs:
1. I really want to finish my latest western novella.
2. Try and keep up last year's pace of publishing one story and/or collection a month.
3. My Photoshop skills are still pretty rudimentary so I'd like to work on those a bit.
4. Publish at least one non-fiction work. I've really been slacking off in my non-fiction writing. I have a few works in progress that just need me to sit down and finish them.
And that's pretty much it. I figure four is a reasonable enough number. Anyone else have any writing goals for this year?
