Resolutions for 2013

Happy New Year! I hope 2013 brings everyone the best of health and happiness, and that you accomplish all your resolutions.

Here are some of mine:

Avoid the library. The reason this is a resolution is because I have a million books in my house that I have not read. They have been sitting around for years gathering dust and begging me to read them. Yet I still keep going to the library, checking out books, and reading those books first. No more of that! Time to read the books I have lying around. I usually set a more definite reading goal (X number of books), but this year, I won’t do that.

Finish the thousandth draft of XIII. My longest work in progress was supposed to be finished three or four years ago. I have worked out a reasonable writing schedule, and if I stick to that schedule, I will succeed in finishing XIII once and for all before December 31, 2013. I’d like to start micro-editing and hopefully get it published in 2014. (It would be great if I could get XIII published in 2013, but I can’t see that happening. Oh, well.)

Blog every weekday. I don’t think this one needs explaining. 🙂

Worldbuilding. I have a set of novels that take place in a bizarre fictional town. These stories are full of inconsistencies, continuity flaws, and other unmentionables. My goal here is to get my world in order. To be entirely honest, I have no clue how I’m going to go about doing this. But I’ll give it my best shot.

And three tentative goals:

-Complete Camp NaNo April, Camp NaNo July, and NaNoWriMo. These are tentative because I have resolved to finish XIII, and I will let nothing stand in the way of that goal.

Good luck on your goals and resolutions for this new year!

  1. Great! I love your new theme by the way :). I think you should try and be published when you’re ready – I’m sure your work will do very well! Good luck with your goals.


  2. I’m also avoiding the library this year! I’m excited to choose books from my own shelves. I have at least 50 that I need to read and already own! I know I’ll miss getting new books from the library, but I’m determined.
    Happy New Year, Maggie!


  3. Thanks for stopping by my site, Maggie, and for your kind words. I too like this theme – very clean and crisp. Good luck on your goals for the year ahead. Interesting to see you too have a XIII story pestering the life out of you!
