Last year, I wrote about tackling the same resolutions as the year before. And this year...well, same thing.
Don't mess with a winning formula, right?
That isn't to say that I met my goals last year. I didn't. Not by a long shot. I wanted to write more, blog more and send out submissions. I wrote a lot. I blogged a little. I sent out even fewer submissions.
But end result? I published more. I got more of my erotic romance stories published in 2013 than 2012. And I hope that 2014 will offer more opportunities. At this point, I already have four stories scheduled for publication in 2014 (one is due out in a few days, my first with Ellora's Cave) and that's not too shabby.
I set huge goals. I wanted to send out 100 submissions last year and I ended up doing about ten percent of that. But I like making the big goals and I really like striving for them. Every time I chalked up a submission, I rejoiced--and that feeling was worth it.
So strive for the big goals this year. You might just make it. And if you fail, well, you'll have failed trying.
