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!
