Looking Forward…

2012 is right around the corner, and I for one am excited. I know there may be a few out there who are truly worried about this being the last year any of us have… but I’m not worried. In fact, I think 2012 is going to be a great year.

I have a few resolutions this year, and I may as well put them out for the world to see so I can be accountable for them, yes?

1) I want to read one poem every single day.

2) I want to diversify my reading – have at least 1/3 of the books I read be something OTHER than YA—I’ve pigeonholed myself most of the year, but I’m ready to read some other things!

3) I want to finish a full manuscript BY JUNE. And try to finish a second by December.

4) I want to be down to 150 pounds by the end of 2012. I should probably make that something more like 120, but I want to be reasonable, and I don’t want to scare myself out of it. To be clear, that’s about 45 pounds I want to lose.

Oh, and I’ve taken on Tristi Pinkston’s January Challenge – I’m challenging myself to write at least 1K every day in January. Maybe I’ll keep that up through the year?

And that’s the gist of it! Those are the things I’m trying to accomplish in the coming year. How about you?

  1. You’re very brave. I shared my last years goals. I wasn’t as brave as you– you can read my goals at Kristystories.blogspot.com
