I have been thinking about this blog post for awhile, as it is my first post after so long. However, my brain resembles the spit-up and poop I have been cleaning up the last few weeks. In the end, I thought I'd go down the same avenue as everyone else and discuss goals for 2010.
I guess I'm about four days late. And to be honest, most of my goals are spiritual and family oriented. I did have one crazy writing goal of having my rewrite done by Valentine's Day. See, Valentine's Day one year ago was the day I had my Idea. (Although technically it was not Valentine's Day because my husband and I celebrate Valentine's Day a week early every year to beat the crowds. Very unromantic, but roses are so much cheaper.)
After a few days, I realized just how not possible it was for me to achieve this goal. So I sat back and evaluated my manuscript in search of a better goal. And then I was inspired. I will have the same goal as my MC, Tess. What better way to empathize with the character I have created? So here it is:
Save the world.
Wish me luck.
