Happy New MY Year!

Okay, I know it's not just "my" year, but what I mean is that I feel that 2011 is going to be a good year for me and my family. Here are the main things I'm hoping to accomplish this year:

1. Getting an agent for my novel
2. Finding out I'm going to be published
3. Losing 25 lbs and becoming overall healthier
4. Turning 40 and feeling damn good about it (because I will be looking and feeling good!)
5. Moving to Puerto Rico and beginning a new and exciting adventure and having some amazing and beautiful new places as inspiration for my writing
6. Read a minimum of 50 YA books

So, obviously, I don't really have control over #'s 1 and 2, but those are my big wishes for this year. I don't know how to explain it, but I just feel like this is my year, both professionally and personally.

What do you hope to accomplish this year? And whatever it is, from my heart, I wish you all a Happy You Year! 


  1. Wow, you stole my list--except the Puerto Rico one. Nothing against PR, I just really like where I live. Good luck with everything, and may we all get good news on the writing front this year!

  2. Good luck with all your goals!! I'll be cheering you on for #1 and 2!

  3. Good luck!! I'll be cheering you on at every turn. :)

  4. I never make New Year's resolutions but wanted to wish you luck on yours. That's a big list. Whew. Go you.

    Happy Eating.

  5. WOW! Puerto Rico?! Sounds so exciting.

    Your list is amazing, Mel. Love love love it. I'll be cheering you on! I'm with you at the 25 lbs thing. Damn you holiday cooking!

  6. Thanks so much guys! You guys totally rock!!

    Whisk, I don't make resolutions either. These are things I hope to accomplish and goals I've set for myself, but there's no pressure. Resolutions don't work for me :-)

  7. All very exciting and ambitious. Best of luck for the new year.

  8. Thanks Adam! And to you too :-)
