2019 Goals!

Happy new year, everyone! And, like everyone else, I have a bunch of shit I’d like to get done this year:

  1. Complete my stash busting. I’ve done good so far and sold things in my shop so, I’ll keep that up.
  2. Finally run that 10k.
  3. Become debt free.
  4. Publish unfinished stories.
  5. Actually wear the make up I have.

Doing all of these seem feasible. If I publish more and use up my yarn, I can make more side money to pay off my debts. Also, more frequent updates may help me get more patrons over at Patreon. This year will be all about ensuring a more positive financial future!

2017 Goal Status

Waaayyy back, I had a list of 5 things I wanted to get done this year. I suppose I am passed due for an update on these.

  1. I screwed up my knees way to much to get this goal. BUT I have run a bunch of 5ks and did my first race on actual streets with other people around. I count that as a win.
  2. I have made a dent in my stash yarn. Not a sizable one but a dent. Be on the lookout for more things posted in my shop!
  3. Yeah, I had no time to sit and do this…
  4. I had no time to do this one either. I did get more drawing practice in, though.
  5. I am particulary proud of this one because I have thrown out all sorts of junk. There are still various spots in the house that need an overhaul but I’ll get to them.

Well, there you have it! 5 goals and 3 out of 5 were accomplished. Not a bad ratio, if I do say so myself.

2017 Goals

Happy New Year!! And with the decorations down and house clean; it’s time to start thinking about what I’d like to accomplish this year:

  1. Get healthy enough to run a marathon
  2. Knit or Crochet all my stash yarn
  3. Learn to knit in the round
  4. Draw my own book covers
  5. Defeat all the clutter

I think 5 is more than enough for one year considering all the stuff I’d like to accomplish. And I think they’re pretty reasonable.

What things do you think I should try? And what are you planning to make of this year?

The Plan? One Step at a Time.

It’s funny because it’s true! Also, it’s not funny because it’s true. I tend to have so many different projects going at once, I seem to never make any progress at anything because my attention is divided too many ways

So, here’s what I’m gonna do.

Winter Boot will be the first thing I finish. I’m sure there was just a chorus of groans from people who wish to hang me up by my thumbs if I don’t get the next First Brood book out yesterday but I would like to continue my Fiction Fridays and I can’t do that till Winter Boot is done. After that, I have two short stories; “Fylgia” and “Old Soldier” that will need to be finished and posted for sale. Then I will move on to the editing for Greenhouse and the writing of my Go Away Girls steampunk lesbian novel. I can’t keep jumping from project to project (a lot of the time within the same DAY) and expect to get ANY work out for you guys to enjoy

Wish me luck because I am crap at focusing. It’s also why I have three knitting and crochet projects in the works as well…

But that’s for another entry. XD

In life news, I will be getting my car back in about 4 weeks and I’m back to working out with only the slightest twinge of soreness in my back. Between the treadmill and the elevator still broken at work, my le muscles re very confused. But I feel so much better now that I’m able to move around. I DESPISE being immobile. >_<

So, there you have it, folks! Lenni is healed up and has a plan to get as much writing into your greedy hands as possible! 😀 Are you excited? I sure am. 😉

2013 goals

I had to think a lot about what I wanted from this year. Instead of resolutions, I have goals I would like to meet:

1: To recover from my divorce and be a happier and better person.

2: To write 4 pages every day.

3: Update the blog more often.

4: I’m trying the 100 Books in a Year challenge again.

 

There’s no way I’m gonna let the bad things that have happened to me get me down. I have to remember it’s not my fault, these things happen, and to move on with my head high.

Here’s to a good 2013. It better be good; I think I’m owed. T_T

 

 

Monday Writing Update

Holy crap, Monday. Pull no punches, why don’t cha? *chugs coffee*

Anyways, after a stressful week, I am hoping to make up for my complete lack of motivation to write and fly through my word count goals for the week. Those goals include but are not limited to:

  • Finish Winter Boot
  • Start one anthology entry
  • Edit 10 pages of Greenhouse
  • Finish another review for Otakus and Geeks

I have been “subtly encouraged: to hurry and finish Greenhouse and honestly? I’m over due with that. I should have finished it months ago. You guys deserve to hear what happens next with Darjeeling and how Auris plans t0 exact his revenge. >} Dun, dun, DUUUUNNN!!!

No, haven’t had enough coffee yet. Somebody bean meh!

Quick Writing Update

If you follow me on Twitter, you are aware I’ve been fighting off some sort of contagion my child was kind enough to share with me. As a result, I haven’t done as much blogging or writing as I would have hoped so yeah, you all are stuck without a Fiction Friday entry again this week. This must be horrible news to all 15 of you who read this blog. XD
However, in the mental restructuring I so often do to keep my crazy ass out of the loony bin, I have been bitten by my muse and my hand just itches to write.

I have also been threatened with bodily harm if I don’t finish editing Greenhouse and start putting it up. I better get on that then, eh?

Getting started on 2012

In 2011, I sold about 2-3 books a month. This year, I’m hoping to double that.  ^_^

I will also be starting the 100 book challenge and also adding the Pagan Blog Project. That’s at least two posts a week for my blogs (remember I am also at livejournal) in addition to the fun updates about how my writing is going. XD

Another goal I have for this year is to clean out as much clutter as I can. The garbage man is gonna hate meee… I plan to donate and sell very large amounts of extra clothes and collectables that are taking up space in this house. I’ve already taken care of our living room tossing a 40 year old dining set that was falling apart but my Mother refused to throw out. We’re hanging up pictures that previously were crammed into shelves and tossing out anything we haven’t used in 6 months.

My workout schedule is going well but I have to admit; if I don’t have work, I do NOT get up at 6am to be in the gym. I figure if I’m off, I can work out in the afternoon when my kid is at school. As long as I DO it, the time isn’t important.

My goal of 4 pages a day has not changed. Even with the new comic I’m working on, I’ll still make sure to get one short story out every month and Greenhouse will be done by the end of the year. I would like to have a store full of stories in all genres! 😀

I would also like to take one vacation with my whole family. I usually run away and leave them behind. While necessary for my sanity, some of my best memories are traveling somewhere cool with my family. It was harder when I was a kid because my Granny was in a wheelchair but we are blessedly all able bodied so other than time, there’s no reason not to go. 🙂

I think that’s all the important stuff. Anything else you all think I should add?

UGH!!

One of my followers on Twitter (I forget who since I promptly got whiplash) finished four novels this year. FOUR!!

Well, I feel like a lazy ass. T_T

So, for 2011, I just hope to finish all my works in progress and get some scripts done for comics. I need to produce as much as I can, dayjob or not.

This is what I have to say to 2010, let’s DO this shit 2011!!!
