Solstice Fun and Writing Goals for 2010

Today is the winter solstice, but my family celebrated yesterday.

I had a fantastic time with them. We decorated some more, baked tons of cookies and the day was filled with much music and laughter.  The stress my family has been under has gone on so long, I hadn’t realized how good it would be for them to just let the worry go for a while.

Think we’ll carry this outlook through the rest of December.  😉

I’ve decided my writing will go somewhere in 2010 and I’ve set goals to finish two YAs and one adult UF. The YA books are pretty solid in my mind and I’m still trying to decide on the UF.  I’d love to write book two in Beri’s series but I may start another series instead.  Ambitious goals, I know, but the YAs aren’t as long and I have a feeling I’ll race through them because I’m just too excited about them. Seriously love these sisters and their stories!

So, over the holidays, I have a guest blog to write, ROD entries to read and since book #2 in my YA trilogy is going fairly well, I may dive into the roughdraft. I’d planned to start my daily word goal after the holidays, but I really can’t wait. The hubby mentioned I’ve been getting that glazed look. 

It comes from disappearing into other worlds.

But I’m also going to spend some true quality time with the kiddos. Maybe even play some Zelda with my son.  Will probably blog here and there, but it will be sporadic until January.

Happy Holidays and stay warm!


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    I write down my goals in a 2010 goals booklet. It is always in my wallet and I review it regularly. It keeps me focused on what really matters to me.

    Enjoy and share,
