For 2012, I had a total of 11 separate goals. And of those goals, I've accomplished a solid 5 so far.
What are they? Sorry, my goals are something I keep to myself, although you may guess one of them: finish editing Beholder's Eye. Yes, I can mark that one off the list. To publish it was another one. Even though I didn't accomplish that one doesn't mean I'm a failure. On the contrary, I've accomplished much.
Now with the holiday season looming ahead and the rest of the head coming at us like a freight train, how are your 2012 goals shaping up? Don't kick yourself for not getting to all of them. In fact, if you did accomplish them, you either didn't have as many goals as you should have or your goals weren't audacious enough.
Think big for 2013.
What if one of your goals is to publish your novel and all you did was write the first draft and get to a second editing round? I think that's a huge accomplishment even for tackling such a goal.
Dust off your list of 2012 goals. Let's take these last one and a half months and work to achieve something. You can do it.
