Writing Goals for 2011

No, not New Year's resolutions, I totally suck at those!! These are my writing goals and what I want to achieve:

Finish my co-authored single title, Believe, find an agent and a contract =))

Write and publish the last novella of my gargoyle series, Winged & Dangerous.

Release another Bites story for 2011, and perhaps write a series.

Finish my Ellora's Cave ms tentativly titled "Brothers of the Otherworld".

Start work again on my single title ms "Dimensional" I began early 2010.

Rework Shadow Hunter, which has been sitting idly since those comp wins/finals, and decide where it belongs, if anywhere.

Choose one of my many 'just started' projects from over the years, and finish it!!


That should keep my busy and out of trouble!!! LOL

PS - have now added dates to help work out where I'm at. I'm still clutching hold of my positive thinking!!! (and not just with the time frame. Writers have to think positive with agent hunting and contracts, failure isn't an option!)
