Every January, I make a big old cup of coffee and sit down to write my goals. I begin by evaluating the previous year, and then I outline what I want to accomplish in the coming year.
I won't lie. 2013 wasn't the easiest year for me, as a writer. Moving to a new city is totally disruptive, no matter how organized you try to be. Throw in a couple of personal and professional surprises, and I'm just glad to have emerged from 2013 with all of my limbs intact.
So I'm aiming to make 2014 the year when I'm ALL IN. The year I write the big stories, make the big moves, without worrying about failure. I figure failure will come... but not all the time. Not if I stay in the game.
I've got ten goals. None of them, sweet blog reader, is to keep up with my blog. I've got different fish to fry. Like writing two novels this year. And hiking twelve different Texas trails... hopefully without any coyote companions.
I'll post here if the spirit moves me, but I make no promises. In the meantime, thanks for checking this area out and don't forget you can always find me on Twitter, Facebook, or use the link up top to send me a note. Especially if you know a good hiking trail in Texas.
