New Year Proposals

I don’t do resolutions. The dictionary definition of “resolve”: to come to a definite or earnest decision about.

I have intentions – things I would like to do, to achieve, but if I don’t, I wont feel bad or upset with myself.

Anyway, here they are:

1. Do 100k in 100 days.
2. Write 500 words before looking at Facebook
3. Do River of Stones in Jan 2012.
4. Write at least one piece of short fiction each week.
5. Produce 3 novel-length pieces of work – 100k100days, finish something else, and NaNoWriMo in November

All these are achievable. I’m not going to make empty promises about losing weight, exercising more, or any of that nonsense.

Let’s see if, by this time next year (2012), I’ll have kept to these. What are the chances?

    I like it. But, yes, number 2 on the list could prove challenging. It’s given me some ideas, though, as to how to organise my writing aims for the year, so good luck with it and I’ll do my best at this end. Giddyup, Hevs, number 1 has already begun. 🙂

      Well, no. 2 wasn’t overly difficult. I didn’t get to look at Facebook until after lunch. And guess what? I didn’t miss anything. 548 words this morning after walking the dog, and more to come in a minute. I have an idea for the River of Stones, too. Such a busy boy.
