New Year's Resolutions and Book Giveaway
I overworked myself a little before getting off for the holidays in unpacking my new classroom, but I know I'll be happy when I get back to work and only have the classroom computers to set up. Our students will come back to a brand new school, mostly, so that is exciting. Check out the photo above.
I think my goal of writing two chapters per month, one per book per critique group is not earth shattering, but in my case a realistic one. One Saturday morning a month needs to be spent writing synopses and query letters.
The last goal, which will take some time, but which I've already started on, is to make my upstairs crafting studio more user friendly. This is also going to include a desk area to take my laptop for more peace and quiet while I write. I think being at the kitchen table says to anyone near, "She's in a high-traffic area; therefore, she must not mind if I talk to her constantly while she writes." I'm trying to sell out of my yarn supply on etsy to make room to move around more freely and to not feel so claustrophobic while weaving, scrapbooking or writing.
So, what are your writing goals for 2013? Send me a comment and I'll pick a winner from the entries. The winner will receive a signed copy of Delores Fletcher, Cobweb Catcher. Be sure to leave an email address to contact you in case you win. Good luck, and Happy New Year!
