A New Year Of Revisions

The new year is at hand and with it comes a new plan.  Last year I gave my self a New Years Resolution to write four novels.  Turns out that I completed nearly three.  I suppose that's not too shabby.  But this year I'm shifting gears to make progress in a different fashion.  This year is all about the submission.  I need a small win, even if it comes in the form of dozens of rejection slips.  I'm ready to make a change.

So this years resolution will be 2 completed manuscripts submitted out into the big bad world.

This is my plan.  I'll select two of my novels.  Presumably 'Speaker of the Winds' and 'Lightning Child'.  Then I'll edit, revise, revise, revise and submit them.  I suspect I'll have my first one out around April or May, then move on to book Two.  I hope to even put pen to paper on at least one new novel this year, but I'm committed to learning the revision process and getting two books out on submission.

I've been really excited to make this type of transition in my writing.  It's the brave part I think.  Risking not only the inevitable rejection, but also exposing my self to what I've been hoping for all along.  The fear of someone actually replying... yeah, send me a partial I like what I see.

So here I go.  I'm diving into 'Speaker of the Winds' just now.  It's time for a re-read and notes.  This may get painful.  Pardon me if I stop to scratch my eyeballs out.  ;-)

See you on the other side.
