Goal 1) Take a little time to edit Music Lessons. Okay, a lot of time. My story is a broken mess, but I'm determined to edit and make something of it. My goal is to have a presentable new draft by the time November 2010 rolls around, something I can start passing around to
Goal 2) Short stories! I stink at them. I want to... um... not stink. I want to learn how to crank those out too, instead of waiting for years for ideas to simmer to the surface, and figure out where I belong in the writing world.
Goal 3) 500 words a day. That's where it starts. I found this challenge via Jessica Weiss' blog, and I like the sound of it. It could be a blog, fiction, a music review, scribbling aimless stream-of-consciousness crap in a journal... whatever. But as long as I write 500 words, that's all that matters. Hey, if I could do 2000 a day for November, surely I can do a quarter of that every day!
I won't call these things "New Year Resolutions" because that pretty much means I'll screw it up. :) But I guess that's what they are. Sort of. I suppose it's a lot, but hey, might as well start big!
