Happy New Year!

Tomorrow I start NYNN (New Year, New Novel). I'll be attempting to write 2000 words per day, six days per week, in an effort to complete a first draft of a new novel. I made a rule for myself that I'm not allowed on the internet AT ALL until I've completed my word goal for the day. I'm afraid there will be very few days this month when I'll be checking e-mail, reading blogs, playing on Facebook, or updating this blog. Boo hoo! But won't it be worth it? A first draft in a month? It sounds like heaven.

May 2009 bring us a revived economy, pride in our president and country, good books to read, peace on earth, and joy and laughter with our family and friends.

Good luck with your goal! I'm swimming in obligations and distractions, and the things you mention are at the top of the list.

This year I joined SCBWI, Willamette Writers, and a second critique group, as well as beginning a blog, volunteering to edit my high school alumni newsletter, and taking over the organization of my 25 year reunion. Wow, when I write it all down it's no wonder I'm overwhelmed. With any luck, you'll manage your stuff better. Happy 2009!
