An Author’s Top Ten For Real New Year’s Resolutions
Or…The Dragon offers you an author’s New Year’s Top 10

Now, this is a little better and brighter! Probably not as funny, but I bet authors can still relate.

10. Send out-of-the-blue good reviews to other authors and post them on Amazon when possible.

9. Write nice poetry for my mom but refrain from forcing it on the rest of the world. (I’m not what you’d call ‘a poet’.)

8. Finish editing WIPs and send ’em to the publishers.

7. Find extra publishers for extra projects.

6. Find extra places to speak and market books.

5. Do that funky 3-Day Novel Contest again.

4. Get Nigel Taiman on The Ellen Show. Mwuahahahahaha.
4a. Get myself on Craig Ferguson. Pardon me. I mean, get myself on the Craig Ferguson show.

3. Find an agent for the upcoming series and whatnot to help me with everything. It’s so overwhelming.

2. Update the “I can’t go out because…” excuses for writing binges so friends and family don’t notice trends.

1. Push all the limits. All. The. Limits.

Sound good--except for #4. I know you meant it the first way...wink).
Happy New Year!

You will definitely be pushing the limits to accomplish all this in one year - but if anyone can do it, you (and Nigel) can! Good luck.

Craig???? What happened to Daniel? Or that guy with a guitar and his group? LOL.

I made one resolution, get rid of all negativity in my life, where ever possible.

Mikey!
That guy with the guitar!? You are, of course, referring to John The-God-of-Bass Taylor. I adore him. Always. But he doesn't have a TV show where I can pimp Choices Meant for Kings. :)

He he he.

And I love your resolution! Good on ya, mate! Did you get your Christmas Card from Sandy?
