As I write this we are barely into the new year and my thoughts have turned to what I expect from 2011. As most of you know, 2010 was a pretty big year for me; I finished graduate school and got tenure at work! Accomplishing these goals feel huge to me because it means that I can turn my thoughts and energy to other goals.
Pantster and I are working a new manuscript that I am very excited about. We have gotten some great feedback and are making some changes that will make it even better. We plan to pitch it at the Romance Writers of America's national conference in New York this summer. In fact, that is another great expectation for 2011. National Conference is in New York and should be a great adventure. I am a newly elected Vice President for my wonderful chapter of RWA, Heart of Dixie, and I am probably going to get represent my chapter at the Leadership Conference. I am also the chair of a committee for the organization and get to meet some great folks and work behind the scenes a bit so it should be a ton of fun!
On a more personal level, I am working on some fitness goals. I am going to the gym more and making healthier choices in the food I eat. Of course, I would love to lose some weight but I would also just like to have more energy and feel better. I would also like to find true love. I am a great believer in the Happily Ever After fairy tale romance. Perhaps 2011 will be the year I find it for myself.
What are your expectations for the new year?
