2012 Resolutions

It’s a new year, and a new chance to pledge to do a lot of stuff, that ain’t gonna happen.

Agent Rachelle Gardner says,

So wherever you come down on this whole “New Year’s Resolutions” thing, I encourage you to embrace your own desire to be the best person you can be, whatever that means for you. Express it however you want, with goals or a single word or a rejection of the New Year’s traditional altogether. Just be you.

In addition to her “best the best person you can be” goal, here are my resolutions:

  1. Get an agent (which means stop picking at my novel and just send it out already).
  2. Finish my already-started novel, A Handful of Wishes.
  3. Have at least fifteen stories out on submission at any given time – currently I’m at nine.
  4. Get in shape, and then stay in shape.
  5. Learn how to neatly and nicely-looking lattice a pie.
  6. Date a rockstar (doesn’t matter who).

What are your New Year’s resolutions?  Do you make them?  Do you follow them?


  1. I didn’t know you wrote short stories! Do you ever post them to Scrib?
    Thanks for linking to my blog! I’ll link to yours too when I get my act together. (Since I’m new to this, I don’t have to ask permission, do I?)

  2. Yep, I write short stories too. I’ve had half a dozen published in the last year and hope to have at least that many published this year too. I have one currently up on Scrib.

    And nope, you don’t have to ask permission! Blogger makes it pretty easy to link to other blogs; I assume WP is similar.
