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.
