Resolutions? I don't make 'em. Why? Cause I don't stick to them. I can break a resolution in record time. But if I were to make some resolutions, this is what they would be:
1. Become more organized. This is a challenge for me. You see, I am a Pisces. Pisces is the dreamer of the zodiac; mysterious, spiritual, imaginative and idealistic. I do much better on the creative side of my job than the details and dealines part.
7. Take a real vacation. Fat chance. See resolution #5.
8. Figure out who to bribe to get a New York Times Bestseller.
Ok, forget it. None of those resolutions are possible, much less probable. Pooey. I hate resolutions.
On the other hand, I do have some goals for 2012. (you see, goals are different. you try to hit a goal. but a resolution is a hard and fast change... goals are better for me.)
I want Midnight Ink to continue to grow and kick some publishing butt! 2011 was very exciting with the acquisitions of both established and debut authors. It was quite exciting and scary to see my first acquisitions enter the market. But in 2012 I want to see starred reviews, best sellers and awards.
I want to get better at my job. This has been one huge learning experience for me. I think I have grown a lot, but there is always room for improvement. Like I should blog more often. :) I am trying for organzied but will settle for keeping my head above water.
I intend to take care of myself better in 2012. That means trying to remember to eat three meals a day and taking time for myself. Maybe going to the gym, playing volleyball, etc. I also want to push my limits. In general, I only do safe things. Perhaps I should sky dive or something.
I also wish to live each day with peace, happiness and love. Yep, that is my Pisces nature. To live with my head in the clouds where everything is serene. Up here the view is beautiful so you can't really blame me, can you?
Happy New Year everyone!
PS - I do need that boatload of money, though, so if anyone can help me out... ;)
