New Years Resolutions

Last night, I poured out the fake champagne (fizzy apple cider. Whatever.) and asked everyone what their resolutions are.

I want to get more exercise and be in better shape (because I don't want to announce "I'm going to lose X pounds" because that's a recipe for disaster)
DS1 wants to learn to swim better
DS2 wants to get better at sports
DH wants to make money (sigh)

I want to get my book into a publishable format, join a critique group, maybe, maybe even send it out to a few places. I know the market is stinky right now and publishers aren't buying, but I might as well try, right?

I want to write another book - maybe not wait for November this year. I'm still struggling with the decision to have my secondary characters from my current book develop in that book or if they need a book of their own.

I guess that's it.

Happy Birthday to DS1 - born on 1/1/00. That was a fun NYE/new millenium eve :)

Happy New Year to you, too. Your resolutions sound good. I'm focusing on one resolution -- daily walk to add exercise into my life. However, I will be working on my writing, as well. Gotta talk to husband about how to find a quiet place where I can write in the house. Maybe we can find a way to support each other in our writing . . . we seem to like similar books (although I don't know how you are on sci/fi/fantasy).
