‘Tis that time again… Time for all those resolutions that will last a week and be conveniently forgotten when the moment is right. Before I get to that, let’s review the year.
I did one book tour. So I failed there. I did more advertising. Score one for me. I did not quit smoking. I think that makes me negative one on the year. I did not quit drinking too much soda. Up to negative two or down to negative two. I did meet my publishing goals as far as novels go, but not novellas… we’ll say 1/2 point for that. Back to negative one and half. I can live with that.
Now for this year. I intend to publish four novels. I intend to do at least 2 adverts a month. I intend to schedule 2 book tours for the year. I might quit smoking. I won’t quit drinking too much soda… I can only give up so many vices.
Realistically, I will publish four novels and do 2 adverts a month. I might get the book tours scheduled, I might not. I really am going to quit smoking, I’m turning 35 this year and it’s bad to be a woman on birth control and a smoker after 35… I’m high risk for DVT anyway and that’s before you consider the fact that I am a writer and sit on my ass a lot. I’m not going to exercise more, I can say I will, but I won’t, so my only option is to quit smoking. And with a little luck, I’ll get a couple of novellas done as well!
So what realistic and unrealistic goals are you setting for 2015?
