I know I already posted my resolutions for 2013, but I think I need to be a bit more organized here with scheduling. I've been trying to do that, well before November I was, and need to get back to schedule here or when I'm doing what in the evening along with keeping up with the calendar here. I have a schedule in mind for what will be posted on what days here, so now it's just putting it back into affect after the holidays.
What's on my list?
And Results after ~~
1.) Re-write and Edit that monstrosity I wrote in November during Nanowrimo. ~~ Um, I bombed on this one. I only read it once and made notes. I really dropped the ball. But not this year!
2.) Write more. I've been doing Flash Fiction Fridays, I want to keep going with these, and I want to do Nanowrimo again. I got ideas bouncing around so I want to explore them. I'm thinking about taking the 10 months prior to sketch out ideas to write the next story for Nanowrimo 2012. ~~ I did keep up with the Flash Fiction Fridays rather well. Yeah! And I did do Nanowrimo 2012, and smashed it dead! lol. I didn't make as many notes as I had hoped prior, but I kicked that stories butt.
3.) Read more... this is a tough one as I'm a slow reader, but I want to try to bump my reading speed some. I read 68 books here in 2011. I want to hit 70 in 2012. ~~ Actually, I did better than this! I'm over 95 books in. Now, I do have novella's and short stories in there, but I killed that number!
4.) Visit Barnes & Nobles forums more. They are the ones who got me started into the Internet world, and I miss my friends there. I want to get back there and chat with them again. You can join me, and others, also...any genre you want they have! ~~ I started off the year great. Things happen. And I've not made it to visit as much as I want. I need to get back to it.
6.) I need to pace myself and slow back on review books I'm accepting. This is a hard one for me, as many of you know I like reading the new authors and books but I got myself behind in 2011, so I'm slowing down this year on review books. Unless I find someone to review with me, here at My World...that's always a thought. :) I'm keeping with the authors I've already done in the past, as I have to follow through with their amazing series, but going to take it easy on the new books coming in. For me and the authors too. I'm trying to come up with a review policy page that will explain this a little better. ~~ Well, I did start using the word 'no' more. It's so hard! And I do have a friend that will join in from time to time with reviews starting here soon. So, I'm going to have to work harder at this.
How did you do in 2012 with what you were hoping to accomplish?
