Remember that post I did at the beginning of January about my personal goals for 2010?
Well, it's February (so people tell me), and that means it's time to check in and see how we're all doing :).
Here's my progress so far:
1) Finish Legacy of the Empress final edits by 1/31/10!
I finished my edits on 2/1/2010, which isn't too shabby, if you ask me :)! I'm extremely proud of myself and have been strutting around looking smug since Monday. Hooray! Now, Legacy of the Empress is in the hands of my copy editor (a.k.a. My Poor Husband Who's Read This Book So Often He's Starting to Hate it), and when I get his edits back, I have a week to finish those. Right now, what am I doing? Why, polishing my query letter, of course!
If you are looking for some great forums to get feedback on your query letter, check out http://www.querytracker.net/, or jump into the forums over at agent Nathan Bransford's blog! There are some very helpful writers in both groups who are happy to shred your query! They've helped me immensely, and I'm eternally grateful.
2) Get to [redacted goal weight] and stay there!
So, I've done Jillian Michael's 30 Days of Evil (or whatever it's called) several times, and am starting to lose not only pounds, but inches! Inches, people :). It's exciting stuff. Maybe one day I'll be able to run in corduroy pants without them bursting into flames!
My other goals involve querying agents, and working on my 2nd novel, so I'm not there yet.
How are your goals going this year? What are your successes and struggles so far?
