Ready for the New Year ?

I am NOT ready. Because the New Year to means, I have to go back to school and I have work on resolving my resolutions. I fail at that every year, but this year, this year is going to be different.

Here are some of my resolutions:

  • Finish Mirror, Mirror: I have to finish this book. I HAVE to. I need to finish editing it and fixing up the plot holes and I have actually finish it. So this book is going to massive once I get through with it. Who knows if it will ever be query-able, but at least I'll have one decent novel under my belt.
  • Exercise more: I've become less active and I really didn't intend to, it's just after I get home from school I'm spent. Seriously, school is like a huge energy-drainer. But it will be the Spring time soon and I can go on walks. I can do a lot more moving around than I do now.
  • Read more: My library is so small compared to my mom's. She has like four bookcases full of books and I only have one two shelves, which is not good. I'm going to demand that she buys me more books. Let's see how that works out for me.
  • Get a job: Okay, I don't know if I mentioned my dilemma. I can't get a job because I'm 15 and nobody will hire me. I wanted to work at my local grocery store but I need to be 16 in order to get the job. Which is not fair, because I want to make my own money. I want to be able to actually have something in my wallet other than my school ID and some loose change.
  • Write another book: I want to start something new right after I finish polishing MM. I have so many ideas and I don't want to abandon them. So if I finish another book in this year, I'll be beyond happy.

My New Year's Resolution list seems amazingly short, but these are HUGE resolutions. I might add to this list later on but now these are the things I'm focusing on.

How about you? What are your New Year's Resolutions?


  1. Finishing Mirror, Mirror will be such an accomplishment! When I finished Pandora, it was one of the most exciting days of my life...then I realized how much editing had to be done haha Just take it in stride. You can do it!

  2. What Melissa said :D You go, Raven! And I feel you with the wallet thing.

  3. Also remember to focus on the fact that you're awesome, this year and next! ^^
