New Years and Writer’s Resolutions

Yup, it’s the new hear 1/1/12. How long will it take you to get used to writing 12 instead of 11?

As is customary, people make resolutions.  As writers, we may have not gotten all we wanted out of the old year–so what are you going to do about it?  Don’t just sit around on your duff and hope your writing gets done, and don’t just make a resolution that won’t mean anything.

Define a goal and make a plan to finish it.  This year, if you want to finish a story, why not develop a schedule?  Write a certain amount a day so that by Dec. 31, you will have a story on your hands ready for editing.

Want to get published?  While there’s no guarantee a publisher will pick up your story this year, they definitely won’t if it isn’t finished, if you haven’t looked for an agent, and/or if you haven’t submitted it.  Do the research, find the people you want to send to, make sure your work is solid, and SUBMIT!  

So, what are your goals/resolutions/plans for this year?  How do you plan to accomplish it?
