Teen Inklings Vol. 18: Resoloutions

Welcome to the year 2011.

I'm not sure about you, but I've made a few writerly resolutions that I hope to keep this year. Here's the main one I've set for myself:
  • Write a full novel before January ends.
Obviously, to do this I will need to buckle down and concentrate on pounding out the words. I'll be trying to write a chapter every day, which is roughly 3,000 words. Quantity, not quality is what they say—but why can't I achieve both? Hence my second resolution:
  • Edit the previous day's chapter every day.
Speaking of edits, I'm just about to turn some in to my editor at Port Yonder Press. I recently found out that the anthology my novella is a part of will be releasing Summer of this year! I'm excited.

Another thing I'm excited about is this site my critique group started to help writers. There's some great advice over there, with more to be added monthly. You can also win books, so go check it out.

I'm gonna strap myself to my laptop's keboard for the next 31 days, but before I do let me know in the comments whether or not you've made any writing-related resolutions for the year. Maybe we can keep each other accountable!
