With a new year, people embrace this magical idea that right now is the time to plan, set goals, and change our lives for the better (when, really, we can do that any time of the year). I'm a totally shameless participant.
I spent last week away from social networking to rethink a way to better manage my time this year. I mentioned possible changes to my blog, but I think it will stay, visually, the same. It's more of a downsizing. I'll make occasional random posts for blogfests, contests, and the such, but for now, three posts a week is what I can manage before it cuts into my novel writing time.
2012 Blogging schedule:
Mondays - Shout-Outs / Updates
Tuesdays - Tuesday Tropes
Fridays - Aspiring Advice
Posts should be up by 8 AM, MST (except today - long story). By May, I hope to have a revision done and a new novel finished. Maybe good news for Woven ... ?
I'm also attending most writing conventions in Utah this year. Maybe some out of state. Know any good ones?
Until then, here's some award awesomeness!
Elizabeth Varadan was cool enough to give this award during my absence. Thank you (even though I need to comment more)! To accept it, I have to pass it on to my top 20 commentators. If I got this award last year, it would have gone to only a few. Now, I can't make up my mind. This place as grown so much! So, in no particulair order, I pass this awesome award onto the following:
You guys are commenting wizards! Seriously. Thank you for your dedicated readership and sharing your voice.
Update: The Woven query is back to the drawing board after some sweet agenty feedback. The new approach looks good so far. Just waiting for buds and CPs to give me their take on it. Hopefully this will do wonders in the next round. The Dragon's Heart? Slow going. Rewrote the first three chapters. Three times. But if the revision is done by V-Day, that will make the Mrs. happy!
I'm looking forward to another new year of writing, blogging, and living the journey. Let's make it count!
I'm David, and who'd like some Hobbit LEGOs?
(Yes - it's really happening)
