Happy New Years Eve!!

31 Dec

It’s almost the start of a new year guys, and here at LTWF, we’re incredibly excited for 2011–disregarding all the other cool stuff a new year means, there are going to be a TON of awesome books coming out! 😀

New Years also means resolutions, and we’ve decided to share our writing ones with you. Let us know what you’re resolving to do in 2011!


My writing resolution is to be a more patient writer.  Right now I try to force my writing too much.  My goal is to let my writing flow more naturally.



Gah, just one resolution? There’s a million things I want to do better. I just finished Bird by Bird and it’s really inspired me. Mostly though, I want to experience more. Whether that means reading more or just getting out of the house, I want to open myself up to more possibilities for inspiration.



After all the cookies I’ve been eating, I want to make use of the gym that’s included with my ridiculous tuition… but a more writerly resolution is to focus on one writing project at a time instead of jumping between several.



Oh, New Years resolutions….:] As far as writing goes (though I suppose this applies to all aspects of my life), I resolve to start practicing what I preach and develop my patience. Things will happen. Things will come. Just need to work at it, not fuss over it 🙂



I have so many resolutions this year, but I think I’ll agree with Kat and say that I’d like for 2011 to be the year I learn to be patient. I’ve got a lot of waiting ahead of me this year (with QUEEN OF GLASS coming out in 2012), so learning to be patient will be a pretty useful skill! And I’d also like to stop eating so many double stuff oreos.



My resolution is to find a balance: between keeping up with my client’s needs, answering submissions, completing conference talks, meeting deadlines, and promoting current releases, there is always a lot to do. My Hope for 2011 is to continue the juggling act. And not drop any balls. 😉



My resolutions this year are pretty simple for once! I want to complete the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, and finish up the manuscript I’m working on. Nothing too exciting from me this coming year!

    I have only one proper resolution: FINISH A #*@&ING BOOK! Writing one, not reading one. I have a nasty habit of dropping project about 7k in and moving on to something new and shiny. NO MORE SHINY TILL I FINISH. End rant. Begin writing.

    1.) I’m resolving to be happy and to write without inhibitions.

    2.) “And I’d also like to stop eating so many double stuff oreos.”

    LOL. Pretty sure I couldn’t live without double-stuff.
