Happy New Year!

2012 was a brilliant year for me - I got married and had my first novel published, stuff like that. I hope at least parts of it were good for you too.

I don't know what this year will bring, but I'm fairly sure it will include writing. It better do as I've signed up for write1sub1 again. Want to join me? All you have to do is try to write and submit at least one piece of work each week or month. In 2012 I wrote 48 new pieces. I'm hoping to better that this year.

I'll be releasing another romance novel soon, hopefully writing another and I'm planning to maker much more effort with the competitions. Should keep me busy.

My final resolution is to review or at least rate all the books I read from now on (on Amazon and Goodreads). As a writer I really appreciate it when anyone leaves a review for my work and as a reader I often find reviews helpful.

Do you make resolutions and/or set yourself goals?

  8. Happy new year, Patsy. And if you do enough Amazon reviews, you may be asked to review for Amazon Vine, and get lots of freebies! ( though I didn't rate the electric steam mop...)

    1. Writing and subbing a new novel very month might be too much of a challenge, Lizy so I guess I'll have to let you off.
