December Goals

It's November 31st, so I'm listing my goals for the month of December.

Because of the holidays, I don't want to get too ambitious this month and set myself up for failure.

So, this is what I want to accomplish before the New Year.

1) I want to prepare and send out partials of my historical romance, Katie Rose.
I have two publishers I've already researched and am already working on the query letters. I've also edited and printed out the synopsis and first three chapters. I just have to edit the letters, then do a final proofread of the whole submission package and send them out.

2) Since I've entered my time travel romance in the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest, I want to apply for PRO membership.

3) I've picked two contests with January deadlines and want to start preparing my entries. This is also for Katie Rose.

4) If time permits, I want to review the notes I've made for my futuristic romance and start working on an outline for that. If I can finish this, I'll have a brand new novel to write new pages for in the new year. But if I don't get this far, this will be one of my New Year's goals.

Hi Susan,
I write time travel romance, too, and wanted to pop over and say "Hi." Best wishes for your manuscript in the GH. Last year, my TT finaled in the mainstream category, so I know judges still love them even though the market is a bit soft right now. Good to meet you :)

Thanks, L.A.

I've been trying to sell this one for a couple of years now and so far have gotten two rejections, but I thought I'd give the GH contest a try.
