HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my writing friends! This will be OUR year if we wrap up all those manuscripts collecting dust and SUBMIT, SUBMIT, SUBMIT!

May 2014 bring you:

1. Writing time carved out of your day with NO distractions!
2. Ideas that pop into your head and won't let go until you write them all down.
3. A "brutal" critique group to help you tighten up your manuscripts.
4. The wisdom to listen with an open mind, not get defensive and make the changes that strengthen your story.
5. The COURAGE to submit.
6. Persistence to continue submitting no matter the response.
7. An editor or agent to invest in your story, your ideas and you.
8. A contract or multiple ones to help you share your story with the world.
9. Time to post your marvelous work via social media.
10. Perseverance to keep writing and do it all over again.  

What would you add to this list?
