My plan is to enter the writing contest in May with the first twenty pages of my current WIP (I actually won in 2010 in the fantasy category with my other novel). And by fall I hope to have my Courage of Dragons novel finished, critiqued, revised, and ready to pitch to an agent at the conference. Those are the major writing goals for me for the year. After that it's on to querying again (blah).
I believe in saying specific goals out loud, or in this case writing them down for others to see. It makes it much more likely that I'll actually accomplish them -- mostly because I hate looking like an idiot when I don't. So that's my plan for the year on the writing front.
What about you? Got a plan or some writing goals you hope to achieve this year?
And, and, and!!
