  1. I like the new blog look, Sydney!
    Movie quotes. Always enjoy those.
    You have your June and November planned for writing, which is awesome. My goal is just one book finished and polished by this summer.
    Happy New Year!

  2. That’s pretty organized! I generally don’t get too specific with my resolutions–so much less guilt that way :p

  3. I love your goals! Good luck on your quest to accomplishing them. I’ll be cheering you on… 🙂
    Me? I’m not so organized. I do have an upcoming release. I’m anticipating early Feb for my sequel to my first book. In the meantime, I’m doing my final edits and working on the third one.
    I’m not a tattooed author, but I have been thinking about getting one.

  4. I posted a few of my goals for this year. They are in my spreadsheet for me to track. I never liked tattoos for me. I’m way too fickle to live with something for that long. I did however get piercings.

    Best of luck on your goals. I’ll be following you!

  5. Interesting! Tell me…how do you self publish books? I have one I’m trying to get published….but don’t want to spend the TONS of money! I’m visiting from SITS! Hello!
