Last year I wrote the obligatory “goals for the new year” post, so. Let’s see how I did! I haven’t actually looked at these since last January so I’m expecting a big pile of failsauce.
Finish my WIP. Not any WIP. This one. BY. The one that I’ll have been working on 2 years in March. I am going to fucking finish this thing or die trying.
Lolzers. Still working on it. BUT I AM SO CLOSE GUYS REALLY SO CLOSE.
Write a query letter for BY. Even if it’s not query-worthy by the end of the year, I’m going to write a letter. If BY is query-worthy, then I will add onto this goal “mailing the query letter,” but we will cross that bridge when it gets to us.
Hmmm yeah. Forgot about this one.
Write and submit a short story. Not even get it published. I aim small. Just submit. Also, I am horrible at short stories. Ugh.
Nope! Didn’t even start writing a short story.
Lose 20 lbs. I am tired of people suggesting I go on or assuming I already am on a diet. Fuck you all. I’ll lose 20 lbs.
Well, I joined a gym. That’s a start, right? I think my problem is I just don’t care enough about losing weight to actually put the effort into doing it. And I’d rather eat a mound of pasta and be happy than eat a bowl of lettuce and be cranky. I’m all about being happy. We’ll see if I include this in 2011’s goals…
Eat better. (This is not necessarily related to the previous goal.) I’ve starting eating out/prepared food SO MUCH because I am SO LAZY—but NO LONGER. You can tell I’ll stick to this goal because of all the caps.
I alternate here. Some weeks I’m like NOM NOM NOM FROZEN PIZZA AND TWIZZLERS and some weeks I actually make almost every meal I eat. I’ve started eating better when I go out, too, less meat-and-potatoes and more palak paneer. So I’m going to call this a draw.
Write at least 500 words per day. I was going to make this 1000, but I know I’ll fail if I do that. So. 500. That’s easy, right?
Hmmm, once again I’ve failed at all my New Year’s Resolutions. Insert shocked face. Do we think 2011 will be any better? New goals coming soon. (to a theater near you.)
