After all this talk about making resolutions stick and reaching your goals, I thought it might be fun to find out what everyone’s goals are for 2012. For me my writing resolutions are pretty simple:
Keep working to make DIY MFA awesome.
I want to keep adding cool new features to this project and offering innovative new products and services. I have tons of ideas for the new year and can’t wait to share them all with you when the time comes!
Go back to writing fiction.
Once upon a time, before DIY MFA took over all my writing, I used to write middle grade and teen fiction. While DIY MFA will continue to be my focus, this year I would like to spend a little time going back to my fiction, even if it’s just for fun.
Have a baby!
Yep, that’s right. In a few short weeks, my life is going to be turned upside-down by a new little person. The little guy is due to arrive sometime in mid-late January so right now I’m working hard to get DIY MFA in order before that happens. Don’t worry – DIY MFA will still continue, I may just have to slow down for a few weeks while I adjust to mom-hood. I’m very excited but also a tiny bit terrified about this big new adjustment. If any of you are parents, I’m sure you know exactly what I mean.
What does this mean for DIY MFA? My hope is to have posts and tweets scheduled so that most people won’t even notice I’ve been away, but for you loyal readers who know better, I would like to enlist your help. I’m scheduling my posts and tweets ahead of time and I would be enormously grateful for any retweets or mentions you guys could lend during the time that I’m in the midst of baby-mayhem. Any social media support you can give in the month of January (especially between Jan. 16 and Jan. 30) would be unbelievably awesome!
Thank you all for your continued support of DIY MFA. I feel so lucky to have such wonderful and talented writers surrounding me and my wish for you is that your 2012 is as exciting and filled with joy as I know mine will be.
