So the calendar has been reset and the first day of January is drawing to a close.
This would’ve been a fiction piece, but since it’s a long weekend I’m not entirely sure what day it is, and also, I wanted to do a year-recap thing. I wonder if it’s a bit late for a 2015 highlights reel now, so instead I’m going to look to the future.
Please note these are not resolutions, just a bit of a game plan.
I plan to write harder. I’ve got two novel series-es planned out from previous NaNoWriMo’s. There’s two manuscripts both in Draft 1 stage; I think it’s time I haul them off the cyber shelf, clean them up and have Draft 2 by the end of the year. Also, if anyone remembers me talking about fifteen months ago about a collaborative novel effort with a friend… we’ve decided to revive that.
Following on from write harder, I also plan to blog harder. I want to keep the habit going that I’ve been developing since April – you know the one where I blog daily? That. (And as a sub-goal to this one, I want to keep taking the blog along the same route; I have created three schedules, each one evolving off the last, and am still working on that)
Restore life to my Etsy store and figure out a purpose for the stack of canvases stashed under my bookcase. More art. More craft.
My driver’s licence. Bit of an odd duck after the last three, but it’s a necessary enough thing. In NZ we have three stages to the licencing system. I’m still on Stage 1, which for my age isn’t great. I need a whole lot more driving practice before I can test for Stage 2, so… there you have it. Game plan.
Work. Last year, I got my first job (temp contract, which subsequently ran out) and then my second. I’m hoping to not be the sort of person who hops from job to job every few months – fun that might be, but not terribly practical, I fear.
How about you – what’s your game plan for the year?
