It’s that time of year again; the one where I check my resolutions and see how optimistic I was feeling when I made them.
1. Write 500 Words a day
I’ll give myself partial credit for this one. I haven’t been great at it but I’ve been writing something.
2. Complete Everdome before April
Ouch… I finished it before July… only 1 and a half months late. But I did finish.
3. Start and Finish a New Novel
Not Yet Accomplished
I’m not sure I’ll finish this year but I’ll certainly start something. As much as I love the disaster movie idea I’m leaning towards a First Person Adventure or a Time Travel love story; maybe a Middle school Novel about being a monster.
I have lots of plans!
4. Read 30 Books
Goodreads says I’m at 13 for the year. I should be at 14 by the end of this month with means I’m only a little behind. Should be easy? Who knows how much reading I’ll get done with Dragon? Although I do plan on reading to her at night before bed.
5. Write a Monthly or Bimonthly Serial Story
If you haven’t read Wargrave Island, my mystery serial story, go check it out. I’ve written 6 of 12 parts and people are dying fast.
6. Test, Produce, and Develop a total of 16 Coffee flavours
I have officially done 16 flavours and I have 2 others I’m playing with.
7. Develop a simple concept for a Youtube show.
Not Yet Accomplished
So… I have a concept. I have the software. I just haven’t had the time to refine it yet.
8. Playtest the various stages of FADDS and prepare it for submission in 2017
This is going REALLY well. We’ve tested the early levels and they work beautifully. The mid levels are coming along well and this fall I’ll run oneshots for the higher levels.
The next step is editing for me. I need to go through the book a few times and clean up the language and standardize the wording.
9. Update JenEric-Designs.ca and add a proper webstore.
I’ve done some major upgrades. Even added a Newsletter. I’m slowing adding more functionality.
There are big changes coming to JenEric Designs. If you want to find out what they are sign up for our Newsletter.
10. Prepare Memories of Faust for submission *New*
For those that don’t know. My first book A Study in Aether has been bought by Renaissance Press yay!
The sequel is a little darker and unfortunately more complex. It needs work and I’m planning on doing some heavy edits later in the summer.
So out of ten we have only 1 failure and most are still possible. It’s ambitious but I’m hoping I’ll make it. If I don’t, I’ll just blame Dragon (I’m kidding… probably).
How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?
