To the New Year - 2015 Goals

It's my birthday! :) I'm twenty-six today, though I don't really feel much older. Maybe next year, I'll start acting like an adult, but I'm not holding my breath. I bought myself Elsa underwear to wear for my birthday today. Yeah, I'm that cool. :) But enough about my awkwardness!

Goals for 2014

“Nothing Left to Lose”
* Complete first round of revisions by February
* Send to critique partners
* Revise again
* Query/consider self-publishing

“Silent Beauty”
* Query another round of agents
* Consider self-publishing
* Hire editor/cover designer

“Cold to the Touch”
* Finish first draft by April
* Revise and consider submitting to small publishing houses

NaNoWriMo – November
* Write a new novel

Personal –

* Read at least 50 books
* Find a literary agent
* Learn to drive a manual
* Attend a Writer’s Convention

Those are my goals for the new year and I hope they go well! :) Happy Birthday to myself and Lord Voldemort! (Oops, I said his name again.) Happy New Year!

Wow... I should have put Kili on my birthday wish list...


  1. Good goals! They all look achievable, except for driving a manual. That's beyond my comprehension :). Good luck in 2015!

  2. Not sure about the manual thing but I'm glad you have set new goals and achieved old ones. Stay young Krista and above all happy. Happy Holidays and I'm sure you'll get an agent whether with Silent Beauty (waiting with baited breath for agent or self pub) or another book.
