2011 came in with a bang. First, from fireworks, then from firearms, and finally thunder. Auspicious? To paraphrase a blessing from author Laura Anne Gilman: "May the best day of 2010 be the worst of 2011." It's definitely time for some changes.
At one point, my resolution was not to make any resolutions. Last year, I decided I wasn't going to accomplish anything if I didn't set some goals.
Here they were followed by my comments in parenthesis:
• Read 75 books (81)
• Get down four sizes (1 down and I'll set a different goal this year regarding weight and health)
• Get three books done and submitted (I edited Blood twice and won at NaNo, plus I have a magazine article and three short stories accepted this year. Not quite what I had planned, but I am well pleased)
So, what are my goals for this year? I'm still formulating based on what I managed to do last year.
