Okay, back in the beginning of the year, I set a goal for myself- write ten picture books in 2010. (Some of you even said you would join me!)
For those of you who missed it, the motivation for this goal came from the realization that a good picture book author sells approximately one in five PB manuscripts.
My goal was to write ten, so that I could sell two.
Well, it is the end of the year. How did I do?
I wrote six manuscripts. (and, BTW, that is a HUGE record for me!)
It may be four short of my goal, BUT ... I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I might have met my ultimate goal. GOLDI ROCKS sold and I think my CINDERELLA story will sell as well.
So, for me, I consider 2010 a writing success. (Don't ask my parenting or exercise goals, though!)
How did you guys do in 2010?
