Tasty as a Cupcake

Showing up for 2014

Hi, guys! The local District School Board's Christmas vacation is almost up, and I've finally wrested my laptop away from my beloved child without feeling too guilty about him not being able to play Minecraft. He loves Minecraft; most of the world loves Minecraft, apparently. I get seasick when I try to play it.

Since I'm more-or-less online again, I thought I'd pull a Shea* riff off brumeier's idea and publicly display my New Year's Resolutions in the optimistic hope that it'll mean I actually keep them. (I know Brum isn't the only person on LJ who's done this, but I haven't read my FList since some date that I'm scared to find out for certain.)

So, here is what I want to accomplish this year:

--Finish a novel, preferably two.
--Get that novel published.
--Write at least 1000 words a day, per the above.
--Get my already finished novel Blood for Magic published. Please, for the love of God.
--Post something in my LJ every week. Preferably something people want to read. Unlike this.

Everything Else:
--Keep up my food and exercise regimen, which seems to be working out okay.
--Do the exercises and stretch my physio therapist gave me, so I don't end up looking like a hunchback when I'm 80. (It'd also be nice not to have my back hurt all the time.)
--Try to worry less (I already know I'm going to fail at this one, but what the hell.)

Not too ambitious, I think. We'll see how it goes. :)

How about you guys? Trying anything new for the new year?

*Actually, since I said I stole it, I didn't really steal it. But I still totally think that 'Pulling a Shea' should be a new term.
