Writing Resolutions

August 2012 057 (1280x928)

It’s time for some resolutions.  It’s time to make promises and hold ourselves accountable so we can all experience a great writing year.  What do you want to accomplish this year? Start a blog? Write your first short story? Write your first novel? Finish some of your unpolished gems lingering in the dusty corners of your hard drive?

What’s holding you back?

Make this the year of Git-R-Done! We can do this my friends. All we need is a plan and the stick-to-it-ness to make it happen. You make your plan, and Ozarks Romance Authors will help you with the motivation to see it through.

We’ll begin with JANO (along with our Sleuths’ Ink friends) January 1 and kick things up a notch on January 5 at the Write-In over at The Creamery in Springfield, MO. Go here to signup now for JANO and here to signup for the Write-In! They are both FREE! You can follow JANOers on Twitter too at #JANO2013.

If you haven’t seen the February and March speaker line-up for Ozarks Romance Authors, check out our ORA Facebook Page or the ORA website because you are not going to want to miss either meeting! Hot, hot, hot!

My personal writing goals this year include:

  • Finish the last 25K of book two in my Reaper Series by Jan. 31 (my JANO project).
  • Edit, Polish, Edit, Polish both books until May 1
  • Attend the Romantic Times Convention in Kansas City May 1-5
  • Network, query, pitch and submit until Agents/Editors/Publishers bend to my will

See…it’s just that easy.

Make your goals. Post them. Live them.

I want to see all your names (or pen names) in print somewhere this year!

Submit! Submit! Submit!

  1. Look forward to seeing these fulfilled, Lisa. I’m not very good at resolutions. I said I’d finish the dialogue spine for an adaption by the end of the year, so I’m currently writing, oh, another book. Hmmm. I can finish the rest in two days, can’t I?!

  2. I’ve been slacking off something fierce this past year. Time for me to get back in the game. I’ve slacked off from my own writing, blogging, critting…everything.
    Yes, this will be the year of get-r-done, lol!

  3. I’ve been very impressed with your ability to get the job done. I have no doubt you’ll reach your goals.
