New Year. New Plans. New Resolutions?

I just copied my "got-to-review" folder of pdf files from the computer to the Kindle. Maybe that will help me review them faster, since I can carry them around the house with me. I also learned I can write notes while I read on the kindle--that should make it easier to write reviews too, though I'll need the computer to post them.

New Year Resolution: Be more organized about reviews--make lists of books and deadlines and sources and try not to overcommit.

I'm hoping to finish reading Sage Cohen's The Productive Writer ready to review before she visits my blog (Jan 3rd). I'm really enjoying her writing and her ideas, and mentally preparing challenges for our writers' group's next meeting.

New Year Resolution: Be more pro-active leading the writing group.

Then I'll have to apply the ideas to my own writing life and plans.

New Year Resolution: Be a more productive writer.

Maybe I'll make this year the one where I actually keep my resolutions.

Don't forget to come back on Jan 3rd and join the conversation with Sage Cohen.

No resolutions, but my goal is to finish, polish, and have my publisher accept the sequel to CassaStar.
Happy New Year!

Good resolutions. I have writing goals for the new year but no resolutions. Hope 2011 is a great year for you.

Hi, Sheila! I'm not the resolution type I guess, but I'm all about starting fresh and aiming high. I too hope you experience a blessed 2011. Want to thank you for stopping by my blog too!

The older I get, the faster time flies, which means in another day or so it will be 2012! haha.
