We're on the cusp of a new year and looking back, 2016 had its ups and downs, though it frequently seemed that there were more downs than ups. That means, though, that next year will be better. And I'm going to do the best I can to make it better.
I've talked about New Year's Resolutions before and if you're anything like me, they barely make it into the second week of January before something happens to throw them off. For example, I sat down at the computer tonight intending to transcribe some writing I had done in my notebook, and instead I've written two blog posts and played on Canva for an hour.
At any rate, I do have some writing goals for this year. I hesitate to give timelines because I feel awful if I miss something, but here they are:
- Finish and submit Losing It Two At A Time (Losing It #4).
- Write a submission for Evernight's next anthology, Owned By the Alpha.
- Finally finish that damn werewolf biker book I've had sitting on my computer for years!
Of course, if I can get more writing done that would be fantastic, but I'm trying to be realistic. And positive. I'm my own worst critic and that never helps anything.
Have you got any resolutions for 2017? How do you stay positive when you struggle? I'd love to hear from you!
And Happy New Year!
