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.
Editing other cool 1889 books.
Like Gangster by Melissa Jones and Ventricle, Atrium by Gabriel Gadfly. I feel an almost auntlike pride over 1889 books.
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?
