Cheers to 2019

new-year-3865923_1920To all of my valued readers,

I wish you a Happy New Year! Every one of you is appreciated and I hope all good things for you this year. Thank you for following along my writing journey.

Here’s a toast to 2019!



I start thinking about my next year’s commitments in November, so by the time January comes around I hope I’m really able to commit. I usually pile on too many goals, so this year I’m trying to keep it simple (KIS).

My writer-ly goals for 2019:

  1. Finish editing my current WIP (work in progress) and submit it to publishers.
  2. Revisit the YA novel I almost finished the first draft of a few years ago, before life derailed in 2016. I think I’m ready.
  3. Depending on what I do with the YA novel above, I can start outlining the middle grade series idea I have. (That means I do either 2 OR 3.)
  4. Finish developing the workshop and launch it in February. (Details coming soon.)
  5. Establish my YA Book Club.
  6. Attend the CANSCAIP conference in Saskatchewan in May.

I think that’s a good list that feels do-able. I will revisit this post at the end of 2019 to see how I did.

Do you set resolutions? What do you see for yourself in 2019?
