2009 GOALS

Put it on a list, and it will eventually get done. Or so I'm hoping.

1.  Finish revisions on MG horror and find an agent for it. (Halfway there - the easier half, that is.)

2. Submit easy reader manuscript until it finds a home. (Persistance is the name of the game.)

3. Finish first draft of MG fantasy adventure - by April? (I best get my butt back into writing every day gear.)

4. Website - research and design. (Santa gave me an awesome book on website design for beginners.)

5. Begin new MG horror novel. (Ideas for this have been lurking and percolating in my head since December.)

6. Competition entry. (Some of my best pieces have come from competition entries. I LOVE the challenge).

7.  Two writers' conferences this year - New England and LA

I'm stopping now, before the list gets too long. Realistic goals - that's the way to go.

If only it were that easy!

The funny part is, most folks would think that revisions were the tough half in that first one. Silly girl.

And SAPBB can go to an agent, too, you know. You can make that April date. It might not be by my birthday, but I bet you can have it done by yours.

April - I'm certainly going to give it a go. I knew there was something I liked about April - birthdays, yours and mine!

This may be a silly question but what does the "MG" stand for (as in MG Fantasy)?

Good luck with your list!

There are no silly questions. MG stands for middle-grade. I'm a children's writer. And thanks, I'm going to need it. If I've learned anything from my past lists, it's that I tend to be a tad ambitious and everything takes me longer than I thought. But that's the challenge, right?
