January Goals

It's a new year! I can honestly say that last year didn't really go out the best since my parents forgot my birthday. I now know how the girl in Sixteen Candles felt, but oh well. It's over and it's a new year. They also said they'd try to make it up to me.

It's time for an update in monthly goals! I make overall goals for the year, but I also try to post my monthly goals for accountability.

Here are my goals from December:
* Work on revisions for "Somebody to Love"

* See "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies"

* Spend Christmas with my family

* Create new yearly goals for next year

Three out of four completed - not bad! I didn't finish the first goal, but I did get a chance to read through the novel and I think I do have some potential to fix it, but for now I'm going to shelve it while I work on other things. I did do quite a bit of reading and I finished with 60 books for the year! :) This is what I read last month.

Remake by Ilima Todd
How We Fall by Kate Brauning
Unspeakable by Michelle K. Pickett
Kissing Frogs by Alisha Sevigny
The Trouble with Faking (The Trouble Series #3) by Rachel Morgan

My stats were pretty impressive! I read 16,461 pages! Whew!

Goals for January:
* Query 5 agents with "Silent Beauty"

* Complete first round of revisions for "Nothing Left to Lose"

* Finishing writing Fanfiction story, "The Nature of Evil"

Happy New Year! Good luck with all of your goals! How did your goals from last month go?


  1. Forgotten birthday...ouch! I hope 2015 is a lot better. Happy writing and revising!

  2. Hush about the birthday and all the best with your goals. Especially querying Silent Beauty. Some agent better tap that.
