I’m not usually much of a resolution maker, but I’ve discovered that even those of us who claim not to make resolutions tend to have one or two. And my thought is maybe if I share them with the world I’ll be more inclined to keep them beyond March. So here we go. . . .
1. To keep up on submissions. 2006 was a horrible year for me and I vow to make amends and finally get and stay caught up. BookEnds says we have a turnaround time of 12-16 weeks, and I truly believe that 16 weeks is long enough. I will work very hard to get to those submissions every weekend.
2. To make an effort to read more published books. I would like to make the time to read at least two a month in a variety of genres. So, if anyone has any suggestions, please share.
3. To get to the gym more often. Yes, I know this has almost nothing to do with BookEnds, but 2-3 days at the gym would really help me clear my head and be more effective at work (and I’d look better too).
And I think three is more than enough. I’m sure I’ll have a hard time keeping up with those. So what are your resolutions? Whether it has to do with your writing or not, I’d love to hear more about what you’re planning for 2007.
