Yes we're still on a holiday break here at the Working Stiffs, but i began thinking of some New Year Resolutions and wanted to capture some for posterity sake. You see, it was a New Year resolution that started my writing career. I made a resolution to start my first novel on New Year's eve 2003. During Christmas break 2004 I wrote the first chapter of A Reason For Dying. Yeah, I know, nothing like procrastination. On that New Year's eve, I made a resolution to finish the novel. On May 6, 2005, I did. In 2008 it was published.
So, in the spirit of keeping those resolutions, I'd like to ask what writerly resolutions you are going to make tonight. Even if you come here late, go ahead and record them so I can throw them in your face next December.
I will start and finish a third novel. At this time, I plan on it being a stand-alone Suspence with a female Asian Police Detective named Mei Ma Gi (or English name, Maggie Mae).
I will also start and finish a short story in the same theme as one I should soon be receiving a contract for.
Since my oldest daughter has set her wedding date for July 10, 2010, I will be at least 15 pounds lighter than I am right now for the wedding.
That's it. Your turn. Don't be afraid.
