YA Indie Carnival: New Year’s Resolutions 2013

At the carnival this week we are all blogging about resolutions. I talk a little bit about my personal focus for 2013 in my post about beginnings, click here if you want to read more. But as a writer, I feel I need to boost my reading this year. I try to read a lot on my own but kind of miss the experience of sharing what I’ve read with others. So, I’ve joined a couple of reading challenges this year. One is 52 books in 52 weeks. *knees knock* :) I was invited by the author of this article on the Huffington Post and decided to take her up on the challenge, click here to read the article. I’ve got Gone Girl downloaded and it will keep me company on my flight to Florida tomorrow. I’ve also joined a group on goodreads that will have a monthly challenge specifically in the YA genre. So my goal is to read widely and hopefully this will make my writing better and better.

So….what resolutions do you have this year?

See what my fellow writers in the carnival are resolving to accomplish this year. They are an amazing group of authors, so I’m sure you will be inspired! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  1. 52 books in 52 weeks??? WOW!! Good luck Laura!
    I know I couldn’t do it…. as much as I’d love to, I just can’t read that fast lol! xx

    • Right? I’m already behind. Thought I’d get a lot of reading done while Mom was in the hospital, but it didn’t work out that way! REALLY enjoying GONE GIRL. But, as typical Laura, reading slowly. Can’t wait to finish this one!

    • Melissa, Thanks so much I’ll need it! So excited and really enjoying having multiple books going at the same time. It’s so inspiring with my writing too. xoxo Happy New Year! All the best in 2013 :)
