This time last year I was making smug comments about gym attendance in January.
I re-read the post with a tiny smile, then realised that – gasp! – I’d made resolutions of my own:
Get Above Ground done and dusted. Finish serialising it, get it out in print and ebook form, and close the chapter on that novel.
Plot/plan the next book. I haven’t decided which, yet — I may run a little poll and get you guys to vote on which I should work on.
Success rate = 75%
But rather than fully plan the next book, I’ve half-planned the next four. Maybe I should have run that poll after all.
Too bad I forgot I’d even made any resolutions.
What else did I accomplish in 2012?
The reason I only set two goals was because I generally end up involved in all sorts of crazy unplanned things, such as:
I adored co-writing this series of stories and wouldn’t mind dipping back into that universe.
The LAST book of The Antithesis series.
Terra was one of the first authors I brought on board for 1889 Labs, and it’s been really rewarding to edit her kick-ass series. The fifth and last book came out in August.
The FIRST book of The Legion of Nothing series.
I was thrilled when Jim Zoetewey accepted to publish LON with 1889. We’re already working together on the second book in the series.
A month-long blog tour!
Writing that many guest posts and interview answers has got to count for something.
Redesigning this website.
Okay, okay, I’m clutching at straws now….
As of October, I also started a new job, which I’m pretty chuffed about.
But of course in a few days it will be a new year, and time to accomplish new things. I’ll post some goals in a few days.
In the meantime: what have you accomplished this year?
