1. Land a good job at a competitive magazine or news organization, and start my career with a bang.
2. Keep up this blogging thing.
3. Finish my first novel and submit it to agents.
4. Travel outside the U.S.
5. Take advantage of writing organizations. (I’ll renew my membership with the SPJ and join the Florida Writer’s Association. Four or five members have asked me to join in the last few years- there’s no time like the present.
My theme for 2008 is Wendy’s Year of Love. I’m going to make sure my friends and family know they’re appreciated and practice Random Acts of Kindness. It’s also going to be my year of knitting; one of my best friends gave me the Stitch and Bitch Page-A-Day calendar.
