An assessment

These, you might recall, are my writing goals for 2013.  Let's see how I'm doing, shall we?

1.  Getting serious about sending the first few chapters of a YA mystery out there.
(Okay.  I've been wearing my serious face.  I'm all serious about this.  Serious, serious, serious.  And, actually, I have experienced some movement here.  So, score!)

2.  Developing an idea for a middle grade series--and speaking of middle grade, maybe starting a novel suggested by an experience my friends and I had while walking Hadrian's Wall.
(Have thought a little about this.  Have kind of an idea, which is better than nothing at all, right?)
3.  Publishing something (things?) online and seeing where that takes me.
(UGH.  I still want to do this.  But since learning how to turn on my own TV was a major milestone for me in 2012, this one will be hard.)
4.  Writing a column for the Trib every week and keeping it fresh.
(Don't know how fresh it is, but yes.  I've provided the Trib w/ a column every week.)
5.  Developing one magazine story a month and seeing if I can sell it.
(Have an idea.  Have started a story.  Barely.  Gotta get this one on my radar more.)
6.  Blogging every day for the year of 2013.

(YES!  I WIN!)

Listen, I think getting through January still standing and with some sense of purpose intact is a huge victory. So I say you win on all counts, and look at you, being all accountable? I predict you are going to crush all of these goals in the year 2013.

This is an extraordinarily ambitious list, but I suspect that if you can write the list, you can also accomplish the task. Onward and upward!
