Before I get to the post, just wanted to remind you guys that I'm running a contest! Click HERE if you're interested in winning a copy of Girl of Nightmares.
I've had a few goals set this year. One of which was to start querying Fire and Ice before the end of 2012...that doesn't look like it's going to happen. But I'm actually at peace with it. Mainly because I know the work I'm putting into it is going to give me a greater chance of interest than if I sent it out now.
Usually when I can't check a goal off my list, I find it rather defeating. It's natural for us to be our number one critics. We're hard on ourselves because we know more than anyone else what we're capable of. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, a certain goal can't be attained within the allotted time you set for yourself. That's why I'm thinking I shouldn't set BIG goals, like querying, within a time frame.
There are other goals on my list I have accomplished that I'm pretty happy about, but there are a couple I'm putting on the back burner for now. What about you guys? Any goals you haven't been able to check off? How did you feel about it?
