Happy New Year + #PubCrawlisComing Giveaway!

HAPPY 2012!

This isn't the real Caesar's Palace, is it?

Welcome to the year of the Apocalypse! Or Apocalypsies, if you take a brighter view of the future…

I survived Las Vegas (as evidenced by the photo to the right) and had an AMAZING time. I got to hang out with my writing Soul Twin, Sarah J. Maas, and my favorite critique partner, Kat(astrophe) Brauer. Who could ask for a better New Year’s Eve?

As most people tend to do, I’ve come up with a few New Year’s Resolutions. They’re off the top of my head, and I imagine I’ll develop more goals as the year progresses. But for now,

I am resolving to…

  1. …NOT PROCRASTINATE ON SPIRIT-HUNTERS BOOK 3. I will start writing it sooner, and…
  2. …BE MORE PATIENT WITH MYSELF AND MY WRITING. Some people can hammer out 10K a day…I’m not one of those people, and that’s okay.
  3. …DO A PULL-UP. My goal last summer was to do a pull-up–something I’ve never been able to do in my life, and I was so, so, SO close to reaching this goal. I was in wonderful shape (literally the strongest I’ve ever felt in my life)…but then I got sick in early September. Very sick. So sick that I have regular meetings with my pulmonologist and still load up on medicine everyday. Obviously, I lost ALL my strength, so my goal this year (once my doctor gives me the “all clear” to start exercising again) is to rebuild that strength. Can’t let a single virus get me down, right? NO WAY.
  4. …FINISH A NON-SPIRIT-HUNTERS BOOK. Be it Purely Platonic or Screechers, I will finish one of the books I started last year.

And…that’s all I have for now. What about you? What are you resolving for 2012?

Actually–hold that thought! Why don’t we do something fun? Turn our resolutions into the chance for a giveaway…?

As many of you know, Let the Words Flow ended in early December with the promise to reappear in 2012 as:

To prepare for this WONDERFUL NEW ENDEAVOR and to also KICK OFF 2012, I think I ought to host a week of giveaways!
