Uh oh all, here we are, it’s the end of the year! Ahhhh! Let’s have a look back at my original list of resolutions and see how I did.
1.) Start maintaining this blog again.
Looking back, I posted 24 posts this year (not including this one) which works out at one post every two weeks. Which is surprising to me, because that’s really not bad at all! Okay, so they weren’t posted that way and we still got some preeeetty big gaps but it’s a vast improvement. Also, aside from one missing side project, everything is looking pretty up-to-date elsewhere on the blog too. I’m hoping to keep this up next year and might deliberately try to aim for a two weekly posting instead of weekly as that feels much more manageable to me.
2.) Send Twyned Earth Book 1 to beta readers.
Mission accomplished! Okay, so this was done ages ago but not only did I send it but I got loads of feedback and have a plan for tackling the next draft next year. Woo!
3.) Lose some weight.
This went pretty well actually. I didn’t start the year with a numerical value to reach for so I’m counting this one as a win. I eventually settled on a number, which I didn’t hit, but I got 91% of the way there which has set me up pretty well to carry on losing next year to hit my final weight goal.
4.) Keep up with blogs.
Argh, this was a total flop. Started out okay, then got a little bit more ropey, then it all just kinda went to pot. I could make excuses and say that I had a lot on this year but everyone has a lot on every year so it feels like cheating. This one will have to go back on the list next year because it really is something that I want to do. I still have my list of blogs but there are only a few that I’ve managed to keep on top of which means I’ve been missing a wealth of good advice! The horror! Hopefully next year I’ll make a better stab at this one.
There we have it. Not perfection but I’m pleased with how I’ve done this year. There’s been a lot of other somewhat massive stuff that’s happened which helps make this year feel pretty successful so despite some minor failings I’m okay with this list. If you’re the resolutions type, how did yours go?
