New Year's Resolutions

It's that time of year again. A clean slate, a chance to do things differently, a chance to be a different person and make things better. It's the time for New Year's Resolutions.

I always make these things. And I always, always, always,always screw them up. So check back tomorrow for all those things that I've already screwed up on. There will be plenty of epic fails starting first thing on 2 January.

So I'm sitting here thinking, "What kind of things do I want to do this year? What do I want my resolutions to be?" Usually it would be something like losing weight, exercising more, or something like that. And while I may stay with that and keep those things on my list, I think it's time that I start thinking about other things when it comes to my New Year's Resolutions. Maybe it's time to focus my resolutions on my career rather than on my waistline.

Looking at it that way, especially in regards to my writing, I've come up with a few resolutions to start with. And then we'll talk about those things that are always on the list (and will probably be on my epic fail list tomorrow).

1. I will have finished the Elemental Royals Trilogy 
2. I will have an agent.
3. I will have sold a novel to a major publishing house.
4. I will have done at least 3 blog tours.
5. I will write at least 2,000 words every day.
6. I will finish two novels this year. 
Those are my New Year's Resolutions as far as my writing goes this year. These are the ones I will do my best to keep no matter what I have to do.

As for everything else, I want to lose some weight, get some exercise, and stop eating out so much. And definitely stop eating so much chocolate. I want to get up early, even when I don't have to. I want to control my temper and be nicer to my sister. I want to be a better daughter.

So let's see how many of those are going to be on the epic fails list tomorrow.
