The Resolution Update

So, about six months ago you might remember me making THIS blog post about new year’s resolutions! Well, since we’re half way through the year and I don’t have a whole lot else to say at present, here’s an update to keep myself accountable.

1.) Start maintaining this blog again.

It’s not been perfect, and there hasn’t been posts every week,  but a total of fourteen posts so far this year (not including this one) means I’ve been doing a much better job than I did last year! I’m hoping to try and pick things up again as I’ve been slowing down, but as of next week I should have a short story ready to go up in three instalments to keep you all (hopefully) entertained!

2.) Send Twyned Earth Book 1 to beta readers.

Mission accomplished! Not only accomplished but I also have almost ALL of my beta feedback now! Huzzah! There will be a full post about this, hopefully by the end of the month, but for now I will simply say a massive thank you to all my beta readers. Current work has moved onto the editing of Book 2 and the plotting of this year’s stand alone NaNoWriMo project.

3.) Lose some weight.

Due to lots of sickness at the start of the year this one started pretty late but now that it has it’s actually going very well! I’ve lost 43 % of the weight I’m currently aiming to drop. If I hit my target, I might lower it after spending some time there, depending on how I feel.

4.) Keep up with blogs.

Getting better, even if that has devolved into binge reading a whole month’s worth of posts at once. That still counts, right? This is one I need a bit of a kick up the backside with, just so that I don’t lose whole evenings where I’m supposed to be working or playing Xenoblade Chronicles. What?

Now what about you guys? How are your resolutions/goals going?

The Resolution Post

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year again when everyone starts making their resolutions and promises. Normally I forgo this as I’m pretty terrible at it. This year though there are a few things I really want to achieve, so I’m going to go through the motions again and see how it all turns out.

1.) Start maintaining this blog again! It’s one of these things that keeps falling by the wayside. I just think that I don’t really have anything to say that people want to read about – always forgetting that that wasn’t the reason I started this blog in the first place. It was basically just another way for me to talk to myself and set things straight in my head. And, above all, keep me inspired. At the start, I really worked and now I’m hoping to recapture that.

2.) Finish and send out the draft of Twyned Earth book 1 I’m currently working on. Don’t know if this counts, as the plan is to have it SENT to the betas on the 28th of February. But it’s pretty big for me, so it’s being included.

3.) Not writing related, but lose some weight. Was doing good until November, and then NaNoWriMo and just December in general happened. BACK ON THE HORSE!

4.) Actually keep up with other peoples’ blogs. Something I am terrible at, which sucks as there are so many amazing and helpful blogs out there. So yes, going to make a list of blogs to check and catch up on EVERY WEEK. It may sound daft as a resolution, but it’s one of those things I always forget to do. So it makes the list!

Yes, so hopefully you shall read more from me in the months to come! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday period and good luck with your own writing and resolutions!

Anyone have any exciting resolutions this year?
