New Year's Resolutions
For the last five years, my New Year's Resolution has been "Write a Book." Now, I have written one. I have written four, in fact, but most of what I have is glorified outlines and stream-of-consciousness drivel. My Resolution for 2011 is this: "Polish a Book." This year, I would like to take one that I have already "written," and work with it--rewrites, edits, more rewrites, critiques--with the intention of sending it to agents by next December.
