New Year’s Resolutions

January 2nd, 2011

Hey folks,

I’m not very good with resolutions (We fear change!), but I’m going to ‘try to try.’

1. More play, less TV. As Logan gets older, he’s becoming more interested in tv shows. And it’s soooo easy to just let him watch while I get stuff done. But this isn’t a good trend, and I’m going to focus on more play time.

2. Write more. I’m increasing my weekly goal for new pages written. Hopefully this won’t result in lesser quality. Hey, Stephen King writes on Christmas, so I can, too. (Note: I did write a little on Christmas this year. Yay?)

3. More conventions. Last year I attended just one fan convention. This year I’ve got four lined up already, with at least one more to add. The goal here is to get out of my cave and expose myself to more people.. er, expose them to my writing, that is. I’ll post a list soon.

4. Make signed copies available to those who live far away. I feel horrible when I’m contacted by readers who would like a signed copy of my book, but they live in different states (or countries). I have a couple ideas how to accomplish this without breaking the bank. I’m going to work on it.

5. Enjoy more, stress less. There’s a lot of uncertainty in a writer’s life, especially when you’re just getting into the business. But you can’t let it affect your thinking. You just have to keep producing your best work and let the cards fall where they may.

That’s it. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2011. Stay safe.

    Good choice on them-there Resolution. My niece has recently started paying a lot of attention to TV [Ever heard of In the Night Garden? *shudder*] so I was proud to distract her this Christmas, hah. Definitely a fine choice sir!

    [A slightly delayed;]
    Happy New Year to all those in your household!

    I love these! And I definitely think you can accomplish every single one of them (and thank you for the tv thing). You’re the best! 🙂

    Hey everyone.   As you might have seen from my social media posts, I’ve made a page on Patreon. It’s a service that allows people to pledge money to their favorite artists (those of us who don’t yet make a living wage through our art). I think of it as an investment into my future. […]
