New Years and All That

I so hate making yearly goal list because I always overshoot and try to do to much. I can’t not set myself up for failure it seems. However, it’s a good motivator to write my goals down and gain some accountability by making them public…so here I go.

Writing and Publishing Goals:

1. Publish Attempting Elizabeth

2. Finish and publish Atone: A Fairytale

3.  Finish and publish Glimpses of Enchantment (short story collection)

4. Participate in NaNoWriMo – either with the “Dragons” story or the “Little Many Furs” story.

Travel Goals:

1. My brother’s wedding in March.

2. Jane Austen Society of North America’s Annual General Meeting (JASNA AGM) in October.  It’s the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice.

3. I really, really want to do a girl’s weekend.  We shall see.

Reading Goals:


2. Read 60 books.


1. I want to challenge myself to do one small improvement around the house per week – either organizational or decorative.

That’s about it.  I might modify the “one per week thing” if it feels overwhelming. What are you goals for the new year?

  1. I have goals! 1) Publish Loving Miss Darcy (finally!!!) 2) Edit/publish Against His Will 3) Write a Christmas short story about Colin and Daphne Chatterton. 4) Write one or two books in my pirate/Robin Hood trilogy. 5) Maybe get a start on the fantasy project that’s been in the back of my mind for a while.

    Um. I just admitted to more books than you knew I was planning to write, didn’t I?
