I want to be published more. I want more poetry published, I want more flash fiction and short stories published. I want to rewrite Unbroken. I want to help make The Corner Club Press even more successful. What I want most is to put together a poetry book and have it published. In January a small writers group I run is going to do a Jan-O-WriMo event and I intend to write a ton of poetry so I can put together a manuscript. I have a few presses in mind to submit it to already. My goal is to have the manuscript completed by February 9th (my 31st birthday) If I hit a stroke of luck, hopefully it will get picked up this year.
I also want to blog more. I know, I've sorely neglected this place for the past month and I'll be shocked if anyone even reads this. I'll be delighted, but shocked nonetheless. I hadn't given up on it, just life has a funny way of stealing time away from you. I also intend to be a little more organized this year. I'll kind of have to be. I have one kid in school and his younger siblings (The Twins) will be following in the fall. I'm already finding myself busy with school activities and this will only increase in the fall, but...on the other side of that coin, it also means more writing time come September. I'm thrilled both for my children and for myself.
So those are my goals and I think they are good ones. I have more goals for 2014 then I think I've ever made in any other year. What goals do you have for next year?
