New year, new goals

This blog has been neglected for quite a while now ever since I was selected for Pitch Wars! Lots has happened since I updated in September, and I'm quite thrilled to announce that I have an agent now! I'm represented by Rachel Brooks at the L. Perkins Agency and I couldn't be happier. I will write a post on how I got my agent eventually! 

First though I want to set some goals for the new year, because I've learned I do well with goals. There's something about putting a list of things to paper and having them stare back at you as a reminder of things to accomplish that makes it feel real. 

This year I want to: 

1) Complete my revisions and go out on submission with my YA horror manuscript. 
2) Review books on a regular basis, with a focus on reviewing diverse books as I have limited time and want to support diverse authors and #ownvoices authors especially. I will participate in #ReadDiverse2017. My goal is to review 20 books this year. 
3) Keep this blog updated on a regular basis. I will aim for once a month but ideally more! 
4) Draft a new WIP. Super excited for this! I hope to have a new MS drafted by June. 

I still have a write every day goal, but it's more about working on something writing related every day, even if it's brainstorming and not getting words on paper. I've learned a lot about myself and my writing process this last year and hope to carry the momentum forward. 

Here's to a new year!
