It occured to me this morning that it’s been far too long since I thought about goals.Â They used to be clear in my head, but around March of last year they all got scribbled over with Put on a great World Horror Convention!Â Then, I just never got around to working on them again.
Well, that needs to change.Â Part of my desire to constantly improve involves constantly rewriting my goals, making them a little bit more ambitious than they were.
So two weeks into January, here’s what I’m thinking my goals for the year will be…
1. Finish my current novel, The Slab City Event, before deadline.Â Make sure it’s a zombie novel I can be proud of and that few see coming.
2. Write Porcelain, a novel I’ve been planning for the lastÂ three years.
3. Find an agent.Â I’ll admit, this one’s been a goal for about as long as I’ve been planning Porcelain.
4.Â Find a good home forÂ my crime novel Pale Horses.
So there you have it.Â Anybody have some good 2012 goals?
