So, it's coming up on that time of year...January first. The time of year when I make resolutions that I sometimes keep and sometimes forget all about. I've pretty much decided to give up on the goal of cooking dinner three nights a week. That was my goal for the last two or three years. I inevitably fail miserably at it because I HATE cooking. My husband really likes it. So, it makes more sense for him to cook. But, even with that, we're always going to be that family who considers a turkey and cheese sandwich to be a perfectly acceptable dinner choice. haha.
I can't force an agent to like my work. Although I would if I could, I'll admit it. I wish I could run into Damon Salvatore and borrow his nifty mind-control. Truthfully, if the agent was a girl, Damon wouldn't even have to use mind control if he'd just agree to dance around shirtless... BUT I'm definitely getting sidetracked here. What was I saying? Oh, right. Goals...
I did manage to keep my goal of writing a book this year, but I really wish I was one of those writers who could finish a book in six months instead of a year. Hmmmm... THAT sounds like an acceptable goal. Ha! I knew writing a blog post on goals would help me think of a good one! So, that's it. This will be the year I write a book in six months. I'm writing my newest book with a partner--my sixteen year old son, Chance, so I think, between the two of us, we can get it done. And I think it's an awesome goal. Besides, in six months a baby can go from this to this:
I'm also going to have an actual schedule with my blog--something I haven't done yet. In the months of having this blog, I've realized that I almost always end up blogging Monday, Tuesday and Thursday--so that is the schedule I'm sticking to--with exceptions for blogfests or contests. :)
So, that's it for me. What about you guys? What are your goals for the New Year? Did you reach your goals for 2012?
