A New Year Already - Rock, Paper, Puppies!

Dec. 31st, 2008 11:24 am A New Year Already

It's roaring upon us – that lovely day when one year ends and another begins.

But really, did I miss some months along the way?

I feel like I'm sleeping standing up right now. I was sick over the Christmas holiday, so that threw a wrench in the whole jolly thing.

Now that the New Year is knocking on that door, there's that whole resolution thing to deal with. I prefer to think of it as goal-setting and strategic planning. *what-eva*

I broke out the plan from last year and tallied up my progress. *cue horror movie music*

*surprise* I accomplished 60 percent of my goals this year. That's more than last year (52)! I improved!! *someone give me a present*

I didn't do everything that I thought I would - but there were a couple of nice unplanned additions. I was busier than I thought. *slacker menot*

Here's the shortlist of 2008 projects/goals:
Completed first novel revision
Wrote 61 poems (not counting roughs)
Wrote 10 academic papers (only the biggies)
Wrote 8 essays
Wrote 6 picture books
Wrote 2 screenplays
Completed first screenplay revision
Wrote 1 NF proposal
Sent in 48 submissions
Received 8 acceptances (mostly poems – and a ton are still out with no reply)
Started new blog (related to academic studies)
Finished a successful JoNoWriMo
Finished a successful Script Frenzy

What's the focus of next year? Submissions! I must rev up the submitting engine and take off.

And you know what? I'm ready!
