March Goals


That means February, AKA Month of Suck, is over. Stick a stake in it. 

I have big plans for you, March.

Writing goals: This is a little tricky right now. I think I’ll be talking to a potential editor about revisions for Garolass later this week. We got a lot of positive, detailed feedback on our first round of submissions and lots of interest in seeing revisions. I’ve been brainstorming based on editors’ feedback and have ideas I’m tremendously excited about. I’m hoping to write at least 10K more of Thrice, form a good revision plan for Garolass, and revise the first 1/3 in March. To that end, I’ve joined the March Madness writing challenge hosted by  . 

Reading goals: I’d like to read 100 books again this year. So far I’m at 14. I joined the reading challenge  is hosting and I’m hoping to hit book 20 by the end of the month. There are so many great books coming out in March, including Forget-Her-Nots, Hex Hall, The Line, and The Dead-Tossed Waves. Not to mention The Body Finder, which I’ve already read & highly recommend! Ooh, and I just borrowed Beauty from my best friend–I’ve never read anything by Robin McKinley before! After hearing  rave about Liar, I have moved that way up on my TBR pile too. 

Life goals: I let the combination of February, AKA Month of Suck, and being on submissions whittle away at my resolve to eat better & exercise more. Honestly, that resolve was not terribly firm to begin with. But. I know that more yoga & more veggies & more water will give me more energy. I need to take better care of myself, and less Starbucks and ordering pizza and drinking soda will hopefully have a pleasant effect on my budget as well. I’m also thinking of signing up for a special workshop at my yoga studio that focuses on shoulder-openers and techniques to deal with shoulder issues, because ouch. Too much time slumping over the computer lately.

These are my March goals. What are yours? What March books are you looking forward to?
