Alright, I give in. I don’t like to make a big deal about these (maybe because half the time I say I’m going to do something, it’s unrealistic so I end up not doing it and thus start to look/feel like a failure??) but it’s hard not to be infected by the New Year bug that’s going around the blogosphere.

So, 2009 was pretty decent (you know, despite the biggest economic depression in decades, and a bunch of famous people dying) but I’m hoping 2010 can be even better. For my part, I “resolve” to:

  1. Get an agent.
  2. Rebuild my savings.

That’s it. Simple. (Hah!)

What are your resolutions?

    1) Completely finish a book
    2) Get an agent
    3) Make time to cook more. (because my husband is really getting tired of Ramen every night!)

    Those don’t seem too hard…right?

    Happy New Year !!!

    Well I dunno, Kimberly. Someone had to teach me how to make ramen, so I’m not sure I could handle your #3… ;P

    Go us, in 2010!

    Also to get an agent! And sell the book!

    I admit that it’s a bit weird to me that you made a resolution that is out of your control to a large extent. If your first resolution had been something like, “Send out 500 query letters to agents this year (or until I get an agent),” that would make more sense to me. Nonetheless, they’re your resolutions, not mine. So go for it!

    Well yeah, haha, you’re right. :P The reality of that resolution IS “send out 500 query letters” (or something like that). The point of phrasing it the other way (“get an agent”) is to keep me focused on the goal. ‘Cause the goal isn’t to send out X number of query letters, even though that’s the practical step.

    Seems like getting an agent is a general theme today. Mine is get an agent and write another book.

    Yeah, agents are pretty key. Luckily there are a good number of them so we don’t have to fight over them. ;) Good luck to both of us!
