This'll be short and sweet, because my MAJOR GOAL is this:
To stop worrying about always staying on top of the newest, the shiniest, the most buzzed-about books.
To stop reading what I think I SHOULD be reading, and to read what I WANT to read.
To stop beating myself up for not writing at length about everything I read, for not posting every day, for not doing MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE.
I would also like to:
Read more adult fiction. I miss it, and I've been so busy over the last couple of years that it's been super-backburnered. I'd like to read at least a chapter a day of SOMETHING originally written for the adult market, if only as a palate cleanser.
Read more backlist. An easy 99% of the pitches in my inbox are for the NEWEST, the HOTTEST, the NEXT BIG THING. I feel like I've missed a lot of stuff over the years, and so I'm giving myself license to forgo reading some of the super-new stuff in favor of focusing on some older titles.
OKAY. I CAN DO THIS.
You? Any goals for 2014?
