Hi Everyone! It's great to be back after my long Christmas break! I can't wait to visit your blogs and catch up on everything I've been missing while I was away. Here's what's going on with me:
WHAT I'M READING:
Finding Your Voice by Les Edgerton
The Icebound Land (Book 3 in the Ranger's Apprentice series) by John Flanagan - I'm reading this one with my kids.
HOW MY WRITING'S GOING:
I'm still working on the rough draft of my latest wip, a YA mystery (working title is The Cottage, though that will change). It's slow going, but I'm making progress.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:
Goals. I'm a big believer in goals, though I'm usually not very formal about them. With the new year, though, I've been thinking this would be a good time to take stock and see what I want to accomplish with my writing this year, so here goes:
This year, I'd like to
1 - Be more organized about the books I read. I want to keep better track of what I've read, and post (short) reviews on Goodreads and my blog.
2 - Finish the rough draft of The Cottage by March 1.
3 - Have at least one thorough revision of The Cottage done by August 1.
How about you? Do you set formal goals for yourself? What are your goals this year?
