New Years Resolution

I've been thinking of a New Years Resolution since New Years.

I know, I know your suppose to have it before the big day, but I don't usually make them anymore.

You see usually mine were about loosing weight, and unfortunately I couldn't manage to lose the ten or twenty pound, and later fifty pounds

. . . . or the hundrend pounds that my sister suggested I loose.

Because I wasn't succeding I relised that having a resolution was depressing, and I decided enough of that!

SO my next resolution was not to have a resolution ever again . . .

Until now.

My New Years resolution for 2009 is . . . . *drum roll* . . . .

To polish up some of my manuscripts and send them in to a publisher.

See *gulp* that was . . . painless.

There, that's what I'm going to do and I'm resolute on that.

What's your New Years Resolution?

Mostly to be a better disciplined writer, eat better, get in shape and lose some weight. I'm doing really well with all but the first one...lol

Hi Kristen,

That sounds like some very good resolutions there. Good luck and I hope you can do all of them.

Don't send direct to a publisher; you'll end up on the slushpile I'm not sure most publishers even READ unsolicited MSs anymore. Go direct to an agent... that's the only advice I know and it seems to be the thing to do...

my resolutions are all d**g-related; or non-***g-related; or CLEAN-related... my other one is to actually WRITE the novel that's been brewing in my head for weeks now!

Hi Gled,

That's good advice but some times you can end up in the slush pile at an agents office too.

I intend to go the epublisher route, then when I have a few ebooks under my belts I'll try for an agent.

Good lucky with you own goals/resolutions.
