Reflections 2015

Whoops! This was supposed to go up earlier, but apparently I forgot. Not that I wanted to do it much anyway, mostly because shortly after I made my resolutions for the year my life kind of got upended and then it only grew more upended as 2015 went on. I had to greatly reorganize my priorities, so a lot of things got put on the wayside, including a lot of my writing : (. Basically, this year sucked.

Resolutions 2015
1. Finish REMEMBER. It’s been over a year now! I’m hoping to get it out to beta readers by summer, but if time keeps moving as fast as it is, who knows? (I mean, it’s clearly not me…right?)
Yeah, this was one of those things that got set on hold. Maybe by the time I can finally work on it again, urban fantasy will be in again.

2. Write a new book : ). This should be easy. I have a few ideas rolling around my head, but no spark yet. Which is good, as I have enough on my plate right now.
I wish! I have several good ideas now, but no time to write!

3. Make more manageable goals. Sometimes I think I reach too far, and I end up crushed when I don’t get even close to my goal, and then I don’t think I can do anything…etc. etc. This is me, trying to be more positive by understanding my limits. Let’s see how long this one lasts.
Hey, I actually did this one. Go me.

4. Rewrite an old book. There’s one WIP I’ve been telling myself I’d rewrite for ages and never getting around to doing so. So here it is on my list, and hopefully I’ll get to it.
Sadly, no. This definitely got shuffled down to the bottom of my priorities list. A shame! I’d really like to get to it some day.

5. One stick figure comic a week! More manageable goals, remember? : )
Yes, I did. Aren’t you guys lucky?

6. Cut back on sugar. Ugh, I hate this one, but I really do need to cut back…
Frig, I made this a goal? That was probably a mistake.

7. Be awesome. Oh, wait, I always am anyway.
Well, obviously.

I did pretty good, considering. I just wish I could have completed my writing goals. I need something that slows down time so I can get more done.

What about you? How was 2015 for you guys? Did you keep any resolutions?


  1. Go you! And we'll take all the stick figures you care to make.

  2. Slowing down time would be a lovely thing.

  3. Sorry 2015 sucked. Hopefully 2016 is better.

  4. You finished the origins of the Latin alphabet.

  5. You finished the origins of the Latin alphabet.

  6. 2016 can only get better.

    Cutting down on sugar can't be as hard as eliminating chocolate. (Which I did in 2002.)

  7. I'd love to cut back on sugar. I sort of have.

    I didn't make resolutions, but I fulfilled most of my goals.


Please validate me.
