Yes, I know it's a little late, but it feels a little wrong to be in the month of January without thinking about where I'd like to be by my birthday. I conveniently (or not so conveniently) have my birthday on 28 December, so if my goals aren't done by then...
On the other hand, I think I have made it clear hundreds of times that I don't really like goals... BUT, changing the wording in life (as in writing) can make all the difference. So these are my New Years GUIDELINES in absolutely no order...
I want to finish my first rewrite of Doorways by the end of April or the middle of May.
I want to do this while working.
I want to be back to fluency in French.
I want to revise and study Mandarin.
I want to speak Italian at at least a moderate level by next January.
I want to have written at least half of Guardian by December, but this is of lower Priority, since...
I want to start querying Doorways by next year.
I want to get back to stabbing people for fun. (For those of you that don't know. I'm not completely psycho. I fence.)
I want to be back on my healthy lifestyle by the beginning of February.
I want to stay on that lifestyle indefinitely. Or at least until December. ;-P
I want to finish my degree and get completely out of the previous phase of my life, since this year will pretty much be spent in limbo.
I want to make a stronger commitment to God.
I might or might not want to read the complete works of Shakespeare...
I would really really like to have about 1000 followers by December.
So... as you can see... lots and lots and lots... Think I can do it? What will you like to have a achieved by December?
