Thanksgiving already? No!

I don't know about you, but I'm not ready for the holidays.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a scrooge are anything, but this year has flown by and all my goals weren't met. Bummer dude!

I did reach a few goals, such as I lost 20 pounds,(great to get back in my old jeans) and I sold another book, (Yay! Diamonds will be out in January 2012, with Siren BookStrand) but I still haven't completed my "Buried Magic" book, and you know what? That's okay with me.

Why is this book so much harder than the rest of them? Well, I think it's because I had an idea, and wrote the book based on that idea. It wasn't plotted out very well & the characters were so-so. Okay, it sucked!

I knew I had a good unique twist with my idea. I even had a couple of top notch agents request it and read it, but they saw through the holes, but at least they were kind enough to request the revised copy once it was done. (Thank you Kevan and Daniel)

Now...I'm on my third draft, and with the help of three wonderful crit buddies,(buddies who have wonderful talents) my characters are finally taking on a "real life" of their own. And I'm finally getting somewhere, and even though it's not done, and won't be done for 2011, I will have it finished in 2012. It will be the story editors and agents want. Buried Magic is my new goal for 2012. I will get er' done! lol

Now my next little goal is to make a Thanksgiving food list. This shouldn't be hard, right?

What about you? Have any goals you know you won't reach this year, but your willing to take it to next 2012 and not give up?
