Happy New Year - the time when we magically become better and slimmer people.
I have a number of projects I want to work on over 2012.
In terms of my own fiction I will be going through and correcting Death of a Dreamonger and beginning the long, slow submitting process. I hope to send 5 agents letters by Easter and hope to have got somewhere with it by the summer.
I also plan to work on my new project Into the Big City, which I may preview in parts on this site.
There are also places to go and things to see, most excitingly (at the moment) She Stoops to Conquer at the National, and maybe a little trip to Johnson's Birthplace in Lichfield.
As well as all this and the usual topics and such, I plan to do another reading group because I had such enjoyment reading Evelina at The Duchess of Devonshire's I thought I'd do another - but this one's a biggie. I will be reading Clarissa by Samuel Richardson - all 1500 pages. The thing weighs twice the amount I did at birth, so I suppose I will have taken up weight lifting also.
The lovely people organising this immense challenge are;

The plan is to take the year of the book's action to read the book - I am a rather impatient reader though, so I'm not sure how I will stick to this, I may jump ahead a little. However, without the support, I can't imagine starting at all.
So a busy year on the reading and writing front planned for me, I am hoping this is the year when I find myself represented and my book published.
I hope your 2012 will be equally enjoyable.
