It’s December 21st, and 2015 is coming to an end. It’s been a year filled with awesome and not so awesome.
Last week I did a review of my 2015 resolutions. I overreached but still accomplished more than I expected.
My resolutions are goals not ways to change myself. Here are my 2016 Resolutions:
1. Write 500 words a day
It’s been on my list for the past 3 years and it’s worked out pretty well.
2. Complete Everdome before April
I need to finish this novel. Only 20,000 ish words left.
3. Start and finish a new novel
I haven’t decided what I’m writing, I have ideas for a Disaster/Superhero book, which would be awesome, but I’m a little sick of the multiple character novels. I also have the seeds of a post-war fantasy novel. That’s not to mention that I have a large chunk of The Hounds of Bakerville plotted out.
Who know what it’ll be. I have a file of 20+ novel ideas. I’ll decide later.
4. Read 30 books
I find reading extremely cathartic, inspirational, and fun. Unfortunately, sometimes I have to force myself to actually do it. I’m on 31 for this year and that’s good with me.
5. Write a Monthly or Bimonthly Serial Story
I already have 3 options for this. Expect a vote by end of January at the latest.
Here are the three Options so far (There will be more):
6. Test, Produce, and Develop a total of 16 Coffee flavours
Currently we have 10 different flavours available. I’d like to have 3 Standard flavours that we have every CON and 2-4 slots that rotate depending on the size of the event. If you’d like to vote on our CORE (Coffee Offered Regular at Events) flavours, go vote here.
7. Develop a simple concept for a Youtube show.
I really want to take part in the world of vlogging and video. I love the medium and despite my missing this for 3 years now, I think I’ll try again.
8. Playtest the various stages of FADDS and prepare it for submission in 2017
I’ve been working on FADDS (Four Attribute Dual Dodecahedron System) for a long time now and it’s in version 6 and I think it’s close to being where and what I want from a pen and paper RPG.
A publisher has shown mild interest in it and I know of a few others that are actively seeking game systems. If I can get through the playtests and fix it up I should be ready by early to mid-2017 to submit it.
9. Update JenEric-Designs.ca and add a proper webstore.
I’m going to try and take a few days this year to make the site more visually appealing and make it easier to find things like stories.
See, 9 is a little less ambitious than 10.
May all your resolutions be worth the effort you put into them.
Happy Solstice and Yule everyone,
