Obligatory New Year’s Resolution Post

So, it’s that time of year again. Time for us to make grandiose resolutions to change yourself for the better in the next year. If I could get paid for every resolution I’ve made and then broke the very next day…

But it wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without making resolutions. So, here I go with some of my (mainly writing) goals for 2013.

  1. Blog more often.
  2. Finish rewriting my novel.
  3. Start looking for representation.
  4. Dive deeper into my hobbies.
  5. Write at least 200 words a day or 1500 a week.

I’ve decided to let go of my short story goal for now since I would rather focus more on my longer pieces. Work to your strengths, I say.

I’d also like to carve some time for my hobbies. I don’t consider writing a hobby. That is part of who I am and part of my career. That doesn’t mean I can’t spend some time getting back to my art, trying some photography, or maybe trying my hand at making some jewelry. (Of the steampunk persuasion!)

And there’s always the other me, the teacher.

I know most of these goals/resolutions are broad and general. Made to be broken, right? Yeesh, look at the blogging one. You’d think I have nothing to say! Or maybe that’s a blessing in disguise…

These are just the overarching ideas. I plan on breaking them down one by one to make them more manageable. Plus, there are the goals I haven’t mentioned that do with health and fitness.

Somehow, I will make this all happen!

But that’s another post for another day.

How about you? What are your writing (or otherwise) resolutions for 2013?
