39 Things

Yesterday I had a big birthday. To my mind, the one before the conventionally-thought-of biggie is actually more daunting, because then you know you only have one year to stare it down. To wait for it to hit. D-Day. The Birthday of Doom. Lordy Lordy.

So, in honor of my birthday, here is a list of writing resolutions/goals, things I hope to achieve in this last year before the Big One really hits.

39 Things

1. Finish one memoir.

2. Find one great title for said memoir.

3. Write three short stories.

4. Make twenty (or more!) submissions to literary journals or magazines.

5. Get five acceptance letters.

6. Write five poems.

7. Write one song.

8. See my name in print twice (not counting on my own blogs).

9. Find one perfect, wonderful, and, more to the point, amenable, literary agent.

Care to share your birthday goals for this year?

    You’re gonna role your eyes at me when I admit I’m a bit freaked out by turning 27 today. My upper twenties. Feels like the carefree, magic days of youth are gone. LOL. I know, I’m being ridiculous. My goal this next year to finish the draft of my WIP already!!!

      Not at all, fellow Libra. I don’t hate you because you’re 27. Happy Birthday and keep writing.

    I just turned 40 [!] this year…and the thing I had been saving up for was my Disney Dooney & Bourke bag and I got it! Considering the year I just powered over…it was about time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Granted, that’s not a goal per se, but it was a WANT for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I must admit, I made a big purchase myself. Go girl.
