New Year’s resolutions/orders-to-self
in the kingdom of books
1- Do more book events at conferences/meetings.
2- Polish The Book of the Red King where needed and submit by year's end.
3- Do final reads on some manuscripts already accepted.
4- Don’t be so dratted lazy about sending out poems.
5- Don’t drive yourself absolutely bats by agreeing to do more than you can for other people's novel and poetry manuscripts...
6- Care about what matters and let the rest go.
7- Do something about that manuscript gathering dust!
8- Read more. Maybe you'll have time...
9- Establish the regional arts group that you have been feebly toying with—start with a web site?
10- Don’t bother thinking about luck… It’s way beyond your control.
