Andrea Buginsky has some great tips for 2012!

It’s almost New Year’s which makes it the perfect time to set some goals for yourself. What would you like to accomplish in 2012 that you didn’t get done in 2011? What new goals do you have set for yourself? Now’s the perfect time to figure it out!
Start by giving yourself some time to yourself. Sit in a quiet room by yourself with nothing but your thoughts, a notebook, and a pen. Start thinking about everything you wanted to accomplish in 2011 but didn’t get around to doing. Jot these down in your notebook to get your goal list started.
Next, think about all of the new things you’d like to accomplish. Perhaps you finished a project you’ve been working on for a while and are ready to start another. Or, you finished one step of an on-going project and are ready to begin the next. Add these to your list of goals.
Your goals  don’t have to be huge goals, such as lose 50 pounds or write a book. You can set little goals that you can work on throughout the year, such as redecorate a room in your house, read a book you’ve been interested in checking out for a while, or even try that new seafood restaurant in your neighborhood. The point is to set up some realistic goals you can work toward achieving in 2012.
Once you have your list, keep it handy. Take a look at it throughout the year to see how far you’ve come. And don’t be afraid to add new goals as they come to you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t accomplish them all in the upcoming year. What matters is that you know what you wish to accomplish in your life.
Andrea Buginsky is the author of “The Chosen,” a Young Adult fantasy about a young dwarf who learns her true calling in life and sets off on a quest with a group of warriors to save their home world, Phantasma.

Halli is a shy, young dwarf who has no idea of her true calling.  When the evil Prince Gastle sets out to detroy the world of Phantasma, Queen Laurali of the Elves comes to tell Halli she’s a Holy Paladin with the power to heal, and will join The Chosen, a group of brave warriors being sent to defeat the evil beast and save Phantasma.  Will Halli be accepted by her group, and be able to keep them alive through their adventures?  Will the evil Prince Gastle be defeated, freeing Phantasma from his destruction?  Only time will tell.
