- Read three books a month. I have already passed this one off for January. I am on my fourth book already and the month is half over. It feels so nice to read again. Having kids can get in the way of taking time to read.
- Attend two writing conferences this year. I have already signed up to go to my first mini-conference the end of this month here in Orem, UT. I am very excited to go. I've also already registered for one in May.
- Finish Letters to Ellie. I am getting close.
I don't ever remember being able to make my New Year's goals this fast. In the past I never quite got around to making all of them. I feel like there is a change in the air and it's my turn now. At least I hope it's my turn. I know it's a long road but I am determined to see it through.
I am working on finishing my book called Letters to Ellie. Once I am done I need to have it critiqued with some beta readers and then sent off for a final edit once I make changes. Then after that I will start to query agents and publishers. I'd really like to get a publisher for this one and not self-publish but I guess I will see what happens. If you want to be one of those beta readers let me know. Here is a link to a blog post about Letters to Ellie.
Come and follow my journey as I try to become an author by following my writing blog http://rkgtheauthor.wordpress.com. I'll share interviews with authors I like, review books I enjoy and movies I love to watch. I'll share my thoughts and ideas as I write and go through this process. Right now there are about 6 posts on my adventures to Middle-earth. I appreciate your support! And if you have any ideas of posts you'd like to see on my writing blog just send me some suggestions at rebekahgrow(at)gmail(dot)com.
