Writing Resolutions

By Darvell Hunt

I know that writing New Year Resolutions is a bit of a cliché, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t helpful. I encourage everyone to make goals for 2010. Here are my top three:

1. Make time to write EVERY DAY. It doesn’t matter if it’s one minute or six hours—any writing is better than none.

2. Finish at least three new projects in 2010.

2. Begin submitting my material to the national market, both to agents and to editors.

What are your goals?

I vote you put a number on that submission goal. There are thousands of agents out there, and it's harder to find the right one than most people think. How about 50? That's a nice round number.

Now I'm going to have to think about my goals for 2010. Hm. Good blog.

Darvell Hunt said...

Good suggestion. 50 it is! ;)

(Oh, and thanks for writing my resolutions for me! JK. ROFL.)

For the first time in more than five years one of my resolutions will NOT be to send out queries. Sigh. I guess I'd better resolve to exercise!

I think resolutions are wonderful too. (Loved the comic, btw.)

Merry Christmas, Darvell!
