I've had a lot on my mind about writing lately. I need to post this now as I am going out with my firend Julia tonight. When we get to talking - well, let's just say we both lose all track of time. Right, Julia? LOL
2010 has been a bumpy year for me writing wise. I kept up with my writing because it is just something I have to do for myself. However, I'm not super thrilled with anything I wrote this year. There are a couple of things I like well enough, but nothing that I really love. Strangely, I'm all right with this and accept that not every thing is going to be perfect. Sometimes, I just have to write something to keep in practice and settle the urge I have to do it.
I'm hoping to complete writing projects in 2011 that I am more proud of, though. I am going to keep better track of what I write, as well. I'm not going to stress myself out over the amount I write but strive for more fulfilling works in progress. I'm going to try to write - from start to finish, including editing - two novels this year. Plus I'll do NaNoWriMo in November and hopefully complete one work in progress that I've had since 2009. It seems like a lot but I want the challenge.
Of course, there is always my dream of becoming published. I have to work harder at this part of it. As I said a couple of months ago - I get lazy about this part of the process. I am going to put more effort into finding myself an agent this year. So yeah, I'm filling my writing cup to the brim but I feel up to the challenges I'm giving myself. Feel free to keep me accountable. LOL
What are your big goals for the year?
