1. Read 52 novels.
So far I have read 1 and a half novels. Not a great start, but I have enjoyed/am enjoying both books immensely. (Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan and Trilby by George Du Maurier. Yes, I’m eclectic.) Goal progression: OKAY, NOT GREAT.
2. Write at least six book reviews for Gracetopia.
0 for 6 so far, but I’m not really behind until the end of February. Goal progression: NEITHER POSITIVE NOR NEGATIVE.
3. EITHER finish BY and sub it to agents OR trunk BY.
Sigh. See Addendum Writing Goal below.
4. Finish the first draft of a TOTALLY DIFFERENT book.
Well, I know what books it’s going to be. Goal progression: STEP ONE COMPLETE.
5. Go to the gym twice a week
Sigh. *counts* Okay wait, I only marked 3 times on my calendar this month but I’m sure it’s been at least 5. Goal progression: GET WITH THE PROGRAM, GRACE.
Obviously I am rocking this. Goal progression: ROCKING IT.
7. Bonus secret goal having to do with finances
I’m really proud of myself I am doing SO WELL with this one! Goal progression: ON TRACK.
Addendum January writing goal:
write 600 words/day in BY.
Hm. Well. *checks sidebar* Two days of success, one day of partial success? Fuck that. Fuck THAT, I say.
The writing is on the wall. It’s time for me to accept that this shit is NOT working. So. I’m putting BY aside. I’m going to work on a new project. I’m going to spend maybe an hour a week on BY, trying to finish so that I can say I finished, but it’s going to be my back burner project.
So. Shiny new project ahoy!
I think over all I am doing slightly below average as far as my goals goal. Not a great way to start, but FEBRUARY WILL BE BETTER yeahyuh.
So how are you all doing on your New Year’s Resolutions? (if you made any) Roll call!
