Suddenly it's 2010. A new year to be conquered! I need some goals! I suspect this is going to be the Year of Editing.
Find an agent
Become eligible for SFWA
Write one novel
Write six short stories
Sell six short stories
Finish writing the swashbuckling fantasy
Revise The Dragon Whisperer
Revise The Price of Justice
I think all these are perfectly doable. Note how I cleverly avoided pinpointing how I become eligible for SFWA. Either I can sell a novel to a SFWA approved publisher, or I can sell three short stories to SFWA approved publishers. It's all good.
I'd like to add "finish Little Sparrow" to the list, but I don't want to make it too long. If I can get to Little Sparrow, great. If I can't, I'll finish it in 2011.
I'll also be reading 50 books in 2010, ten of them small-press published books if I can manage it. And of course I've started my usual diet, which will hopefully last longer than last year's diet lasted (about four days) because I've got some really cute clothes in the back of my closet that I can't fit into and I'd like to wear them again, dammit.
