Reason #2: Taking a Class
That's right, I'm going to be taking a class this year. Just one, because of my work schedule, but I'm excited about it. I'm taking Introduction to Anthropology 101, which should fit nicely into my people obsession.
However, this is the first time I'll have gone back to college since 2002, so I'm a bit nervous. I keep telling myself that it's just reading and writing. And I can do that in my sleep, right?
|I'm not scared. Not at all.|
Reason #3: Revising my 2010 Books
I wrote two books in 2010. Both of them have male protagonists and currently both of them are in the horrible first draft stage. My goal is to get both of them rewritten enough to send to beta readers before summer hits.
This is especially awesome because my husband is my first reader and he's been begging me to write him something from a male POV. I'm looking forward to seeing what he thinks.
Reason #4: My Very Shiny New Book Idea
This most likely won't be in the works until summer, but I've been plotting and planning and it's coming together nicely. I can't really tell you what it's about, except there's a space station. And an advanced version of the witness protection program. And a robotic dog with excellent social skills.
Did I mention it's IN SPACE?
(Oh, speaking of space, Beth Revis's fabulous book Across the Universe releases next week! You should all read the first chapter here. And then order it. I want YA sci-fi to be the next big thing so that my Shiny Idea will be cooler.)
How about you? What are you looking forward to this year?
