It's been a long, long time.

Hello, friends! I bet you thought I was long gone. But I'm not. Still here. And still kicking.

I'm going to be picking up my writing again. I go on these breaks and then I come back, but I am going to get back on the wagon again. I hope you'll come along with me.

Here's my goals for the coming year.

1. Write at least 500 words a day. And not just any random words, like on a blog post or in my journal. 500 quality novel-writing words. If more happens, that's awesome, but at least 500.

2. Get an agent. This means having a finished draft, ready to query before the end of the year. This means actually querying before the end of the year. This means writing. (In my wildest dreams, this means a major publishing deal, but we'll start small with get an agent.)

3. Write a writing related blog post at least once a week, even if it's just a "here's how I did this week" post. I need to be accountable to someone and it might as well be me.

 And that's actually it for writing goals. I do want to lose another 10 pounds or so to be at my ideal weight and keep my house mostly clean, but that's not really relevant to this blog.

I want this year to be my writing year. I've put it off and delayed it and derailed it and I have lots of great ideas in me. I waste way too much time doing stuff that isn't really important (hello, facebook.)

So, see you next week, with at least 3500 words written and another blog post!

Hey, Kayeleen!I'm glad to see you back on your blog; you've been very busy. Your goals sound great, and I recommend that you join a supportive writing group on FB, as we are have a January goal of either writing new words or editing our WIP's.
