A new year is always like a fresh start.

I keep telling myself that and hopefully I can make it true.  The one thing that is always gnawing at the back of my mind is my novel.  I never seem to have the time of the energy to work on it.  Whenever someone asks me how it’s coming along, I kinda have to drop my head and say, “Eh, it’s not really going anywhere.”

I think that because it’s such a large, daunting project that I’m reluctant to dive head first into it.  This, however, is about to change…

I resolve to make 2010 the year that I at least finish the first book in the series.

I need to start setting deadlines for myself, otherwise I’ll never give it the serious thought that it deserves.  I people want to read it, as they have liked what I little I have produced so far, but I know I’ll never be happy until the damn story is told in its entirety.  So, in this regard, I’m going to devote at least 1 hour to writing every day, at least 5 days a week.  Five hours a week doesn’t seem like much, but it’s a lot more than I’m currently doing.  Every hour spent will be one more hour towards completion.

I hope that you all will be around to read it when it’s complete, and buy a copy when I get it published.  It’s time to roll up my sleeves and get serious.

    That's how I did it. I set a specific time to work on my novel. Nights that Chris worked after Vaughn was asleep. It didn't give me a ton of time to write, but I was surprised how quickly I was able to pound it out because I had this scheduled time. Happy writing!
