Sunday Songs (11) & My OWN bookish goals

Today I'm feeling Skillet.
So here are three of my favorite songs from them.....



And, last but not least, Awake and Alive-

Happy Listening Everybody!

So, I've got a secret for you, my blog readers. I'm an inspiring author. Yep, I love to write and I finished my first novel last year, when I was eighteen. This series is my baby and I've been working on it since 2009. Seems like a long time to work on one novel.

Well, it's because in the beginning I was still working on high school, actually working on finishing early and I did. I finished high school June of 2010 but I didn't get into the groove of writing til later that year and finished it April 1st of 2011.

I worked on the first and wrote half of the second in the year I was taking a break. A break before going to college, a chance to see what I liked and hoped to learn when I did go to school. And to tell you I want to learn pretty much everything creative. In spring semester I'll be learning Make-up for Theatre, Styles of Acting, and Beginners Industrial Sewing and I can't wait. If you want to know what I did last semester here's a link to the post- click.

Anyways, I've posted my goals on my other blog Dashley's Writing Process but since most read this one I would love to share them with you.

Bookish 2012 goals

This morning I came up with a few goals I hope to accomplish. Only three right now.

First goal, is to get my short horror story out there on kindle and what not so you guys can have a taste for my writing before I self publish my big series

Second goal, is to publish my first novel, Broken, before my 20th birthday coming on Dec 1. I'll copyright it, see how much it is for cost to get it out in paperback and then get the cover designed done by my favorite self publish author, Keary Taylor.

I already know what it's going to look like so when my friend has time I'll ask if she can draw it out. Also before I get it copyrighted my mother will be (finally) able to sit down and read it mostly because she's going to have knee surgery so in her time off she'll have loads of time to get to it. :)

Third goal, is to get close to finishing the second book in the series done. That way if people love the first then they won't have to wait a whole year for the next. Hopefully. I'm already half way done and so forth. Got more written than typed.

So crosses fingers and I can't wait to show you guys what I do accomplish.
