Reflections 2020

I don’t know about any of you, but looking back on this year only makes me want to scream in horror. Does anyone even remember the beginning of it, how naïve and hopeful we were? Maybe not. It was five centuries ago.
I don’t even remember what I was supposed to be doing this year…
Resolutions 2020
1. Get WIP-1 ready to be published.
As far as I can tell, it’s as good is as it’s going to get. I’m not sure if it’s good enough, though.
2. Finish editing WIP-2 to get it ready for beta reading.
Wow, I did this, I even got the beta reading underway. That’s actually kind of impressive. It almost makes up for me not doing the next goal.
3. Finish editing the other WIP that kind of got pushed aside after I decided to write WIP-2.
I did some work on it, but unfortunately, it kept getting pushed aside. It’s not going anywhere, though.
4. Write the two short side stories I have planned, and edit everything.
Did not do this, mostly because I was working on other goals. And yet another new project.
5. Maybe write the sequel to the other WIP. I don’t know, I’ll have to see if I have the time.
I did consider this, but I ended up starting a completely new project instead. Of course.
6. Work on my health and hopefully get better.
Kind of a mixed bag, really. This year was… well, you know.
7. Not back down when I know what’s right. Ever.
And I haven’t. Then again, I haven’t been leaving the house much what with the whole deadly plague that’s caused the death of hundreds of thousands of people.
Ugh, 2020. UGHHHHHHHHH. Go jump in a lake. No one will miss you.
Anything you want to share that was good about this year? You know, if that’s possible.


  1. I think we can all be forgiven for not meeting our goals for 2020 - no one expects a global pandemic!

  2. It's been a strange year, that's for sure. I am cursed with a rather good memory, so I do remember the beginning of the year with some clarity. (Of course, I did just go through my blog posts for the year for Thursday's post, so. . .) My year started out with a couple falls (from 2019) and someone stealing the battery out of my car. I kinda think the lockdown was kinda a relief.

  3. No! Don't have it jump in a lake! It will poison the lake and, maybe, the entire water system of the Earth, like Ice-9.
    You can't even send it at the sun, because it would make the sun go nova.
    Which leaves the wuestion of what to do with it...

  4. In India, there was a campaign in April or so, 'break the chain'. The hope was that the lockdown will starve the virus to death, after being deprived of human bodies to thrive on; and we will all bounce back to our normal lives. Alas!

  5. We had some good stuff, but it was mostly something we're not going to talk about. I miss sitting at a cafe to do my writing or meet with friends.
