2011 On The Horizon

When I wasn't paying attention, 2010 blew past me. Only one of my goals made it to fruition, which has me wondering if I suck at long-term planning.

No matter. I decided that 2011 is the year. If I can stay focused (and positive), I'm going to snag an agent. I outlined my plan to Hubby today and it sounds doable. As long as I stay focused. I'll have a tight time line which I'll have to break out into smaller steps this weekend, but I'll need something to do when all the family together time is done.

January: Complete current draft of Phoenix Rising.
February: Hubby will look it over.
March: Revise and edit Phoenix Rising once more before sending it out for critique*.
April: Catch up on sleep.

This is as far as I've gotten in my plan, but it's only an hour old.

Lurkdom, I hope you'll hold me responsible.

What is your big goal for 2011?

* Speaking of, I'll need some volunteers. If you're interested in critiquing a paranormal, let me know.

  3. Agent is totes at the top of my list for 2011! Especially since the cuz has one now. Such inspiration! And I would be happy to do a manuscript switch with you if you are interested :)

  5. Well, I would LOVE to land a book deal in 2011. It's definitely wishful thinking, but it's okay to dream big, right? :)

  6. Holly/ Quita - I'll keep the fingers crossed that all three of us get an agent. *grabs pom poms*

    Pam - I like your goal. You got the agent this year, so why not the book deal?

    Mir - One goal is better than none. :)
