It is the first month of 2014, and also the week of my 33rd birthday, so that means it is time for a check-up on last year's resolutions and a list of all new ones.
Last year I met about half of my resolutions. I blogged more, both here and on another forum. I also submitted three stories to contests. I haven't heard on the last one yet, but I'm just proud that I got out of my comfort zone enough to send them off.
I also completed National Novel Writing Month successfully, for the first time in four years. I'm pretty proud of that accomplishment.
I bought stuff to make 72-Hour Emergency Kits, but I didn't really put the kits together.
I met with the women of the local Roller Derby league, the Animas Roller Girls. They were very welcoming and excited to see a new face. However, I injured my leg (not nearly as badly as before) shortly after the meeting, so I decided to put it off again.
So this year, the list grows.
1. Make the 72-Hour Emergency Kits.
2. Revise the NaNo book into something readable.
3. Complete the unfinished stories I have backed up in my computer.
4. Get my teaching license again.
5. Blog weekly (here or Tumblr).
I have had a lot of time off to become more serious as a writer, but I haven't really had much of a focus about it. I am dedicating this year to making writing more than a pipe dream.
There are a few other things that I want to accomplish, but those aren't for sharing right now.
