Happy New Year

Welcome to 2013.

I'm looking forward to the hope and promise of a new year. Everything seems possible. Dreams sit close to your fingertips almost within grasp. You can start afresh, plan anew. Life holds such promise.

I make no resolutions though. I've never been one for making them, probably because I am not a planner. I do set myself deadlines, especially with my writing.

So here are my 2013 deadlines:
Mid Jan. Submit diving story
End of Jan. Complete The Death Story
End March. Complete Online fantasy 2
End June. Complete Past Lives
End Oct. Self pub Mo-Ro story
End year. Draft a new story

And hopefully that will keep me out of mischief!

How about you, do you make resolutions or goals?


  1. No resolutions here either. If I have a goal it would be to write more in 2013 and to write better and maybe to try a novella. Right now I'm still in the contract negotiation throes (ie I'm negotiating, they ain't). I move interstate at the end of the month and there'll be a new house to set up. How that all works in with (hopefully) final edits etc, will be anybody's guess...
    Good luck with achieving all the things on your list in 2013!

  2. Oh, you have a big year ahead, Lily! Bugger about the no negotiating. I hope they talk soon. Good luck with edits and house moving - that will keep you busy!!
