I usually don’t think of myself with the lofty title of ‘author.’ I consider myself a simple story teller.
But, that’s neither here nor there.
While I wait for the return of 2 manuscripts–one from an editor and one from an illustrator–I decided NOT to work on my 3 open stories sitting in my dock. No, a new Lakeville story popped into my mind early Christmas morning and I’ve been working on it ever since.
Not completely conducive to my plan of getting at least 2 books into print this year, but when your characters practically drop the whole story into your lap overnight, you really must write it down.
*shiny object interruption: I am eating a salad with cilantro and I really dislike the stuff*
Ahem, in conclusion, my writing goals for this year, 2013, are:
~ publish Restoration
~ publish Angels Unaware
~ decide which Young sibling goes next in publication order
~ finish, for my husband, my 2010 NaNo, Park Bench
~ decide if I want to attend RomCon with friends from church in June as a fan or a writer or both
~ decide on my genre for NaNo, 2013
~ complete at least 2 random manuscripts I have lurking in my document folder
~ blog with a wee bit more consistency (stop laughing, Chautona)
All in all, a completely do-able list. Now that I wrote them down, as Laura discusses in this post, they are tangible. I think 2013 is going to be a smashing year!
