I've never actually written down a goal for writing. Even after I joined ANWA and realized I wanted to get "serious" about writing, I didn't make them. This year, that has changed. I've voiced my goals, but perhaps I should jot them down so you all can hold me accountable.
My goal is this:
I will be published by the end of the year or have done everything I could to make that happen.
I intend to query until I've exhausted my list (courtesy of my awesome friend, Kristin. She might let you have the list too, but I also wouldn't put it past her to make you work for it. :D)
And since I have a high opinion of myself and MBFIAS (my latest acronym for the YA novel I'm going to be querying. It has a ridiculously long name "My Best Friend Is A Superhero." You've probably heard me refer to it simply as the "Superhero" book. Acronyms, especially long ones you can't make a pronounceable word out of are much more fun.)
I'm so close to 1000 followers on Twitter! Follow, enter here, and tweet about it to win a copy after I get 1000 followers! a Raffle...
I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
