Well, the year is 25% finished, so let’s see how poorly I’m doing at keeping my resolutions:
1-Read twenty books.
What I’ve read so far:
Altered Carbon, The Crown Conspiracy, The Prince, Sworn to the Night
Currently reading: The Art of War
So behind by a few pages. Good enough.
2-Fifty-two blog posts.
I haven’t counted them, but I must be behind. On the other hand, if I stick to my current two-posts a week schedule, I’ll catch up quickly.
3-Get Book the First out of my head.
Editing is progressing steadily. I’d say I’m on track or even ahead of schedule here, and I’m certainly approaching the “One Final Push” stage. I’ll probably take a breather from editing in a week or two to build a list of final-attempts-at-queries, and I’ll probably manage to send those out by the end of June.
4-Work on the actual, not abandonned Book the Second.
I’ve finally found the energy to return to steady writing. The wordcount is at about 6500, meaning we’re at about 10% of the first draft. Below where I should be, but positive trend so let’s take it.
5-Make progress on improving this site.
Progress has been done, so that’s a technical win. Realistically, I still need to work on a lot of things, but that’s not plausible for now. I’ll keep going with the small improvements but don’t expect anything visible.
So there we have it. Not too shabby considering the long hiatus I took. Let’s keep those trends going!
