Feeling Good!

Here we are in mid-January and I just realized I've met all of my goals for the month but one.

I sent out my partials for Katie Rose, my historical romance, and already received the reply card from one of the publishers.

I cut scenes in Erin's Rebel, so it would meet my target publisher's guidelines, sent the query and synopsis, got a request for the first three chapters, and now they have the full under consideration.

Yeah, way ahead on that goal!

I sent out my contest entry for Katie Rose yesterday, well ahead of the January 31st dealine.

So, all that's left is that outline. I spent an hour world-building today. I would have done it yesterday, but my editor wanted me to get the manuscript information sheet in for my short vampire story, Eternity Waits, so the cover artist can start working on the cover and the marketing department can start planning how to promote my story.

A cover for my short story! Can't wait to see it!

Oooh, I can't wait to see that cover either, Susan!

It's great to be ahead on your goals! I don't know what it is about writing them down (as you do every month) but it does seem to make you more apt to follow through.

Can't wait to see your new cover up on the Victorians blog page!

Thanks, Nic!

And it definitely does help to write those goals down. I don't always accomplish every one of them, and sometimes change directions, but I at least have a clear path of where I want to go.

Before I started listing goals, I easily lost my way and sometimes felt I wasn't getting anwywhere.
