Prism Blog Hop and Goals

Hey! This year I joined the wonderful authors and editors at Prism Book Group.

I joined them as an author when the anthology, Brave New Century, was released in November.

I also have another book releasing in March called Legacy and Love.

I joined back in the spring as an acquisitions editor and have worked with four authors so far.

For the purpose of this blog hop, I am to share some goals for this next year in conjunction with my work at Prism Book Group.

First and related to my overall goals for this year, I plan to balance or manage my time more efficiently this next year. I have a calendar/planner that I am using as a check-off system for the goals I achieve each day and week. So far, it is working well.

Next and related to my other guide word for this year, I want to strive to be intentional in my writing and editing. For me this means to make sure that all I do is honoring God and bringing Him glory. I want to question my motives for each project I undertake.

Those are two main goals that I have for this year. I also want to complete at least one of my two works in progress to submit for consideration. I want to work diligently so I can submit my authors' manuscripts to the editor-in-chief ahead of schedule. I want to write and submit some articles for magazines. I want to continue to pursue getting my six grad classes in English to apply for a teaching position at a local college. I want to stay faithful in writing for both of my blogs and turn the CCWCU blog into a book in the future. I want to plan and be prepared for teaching at the Blue Ridge conference in May.

Well, now that I have shared those things with my readers, I guess that provides some accountability. I pray that I will let God lead me to do exactly what I am to do in accordance with His will. I pray this for you, too.

Here are some other great blogs for you to check out. Let's see what goals each has in mind for this next year. Don't miss the Prism Blog or the Rafflecopter.

Thanks Carlene. It's normally what God is teaching me at the time.
Linda, I am praying for the funds. But, God is faithful.
Kim, thank you. Glad to be here.

I tried to think of the words that would do this blog justice. I came up with 3: You Rock girlfriend!
