Goals for the New Year

I realized I hadn't posted my goals for 2011. Writing them down (especially in public) is the only way I'll get my butt moving.

Writing Goals:
Complete my Ivy book in time for Pennwriters Conference (May)
  includes completing first draft (est 60,000 words)
  running book through How to Revise Your Novel
  get book pitch-ready 

Submit it to agents
  includes writing query letter

Finish first draft of Demon book
OR run Phantom book through HTRYN

Participate in NaNoWriMo 2011?

Other goals:
Run 5k in July
run half marathon in October
I'm sure there are others, but they escape me.

I think that's enough to keep me busy for the year. It's enough to keep me working, and it may be more than I can do, but at least I won't finish early.

What are your goals for the year?
