So I'm going to review some goals from past years.
take me out of debt - on paper. There's still a Legal Aid bill from my
divorce, but there is no interest charged so it can continue to be
paid off in pre-authorized payments. My car is in my name and registered to
me, but the loan is not - therefore it does not show up as
2. 10% increase in income from writing. Rather than do 10% more,
I'm going to become more efficient (buying the laptop was a start) and more
effective (by charging more).
3. One more column. I have two: both horse related. I'd like to
develop one either online or in print that is not related to the horse
industry. Maybe writing related.
4. Finish 2 non-fiction books that are currently in the works and
start developing my fiction writing.*
*I finished one proposal and the other one was crap
Apparently I made no resolutions!
Write Rookie Reiner (yeah, I should think so... I'm contracted to do it now!) Increase writing income by 10-15%
- Learn to do my own taxes
- Reach the milestone of 300 published articles (I'm at about 210)
- Finish my ICEA coursework and attend the September convention.
- Finish two more Book Proposals (
one horse bookand one non-horse book*)
- Set up new accounting system**.
Pay off two credit cards, the line of credit and cancel one card. Move. (as in... out of this house...)*** Write more about common things people care about and less about politics.
** yes, if by "new accounting system" you mean, continue to throw receipts on to a pile called "ignore".
*** I did, into another rental...
I didn't make any resolutions that I can find. I did write about 2008 being my Year of Hope though.
I did buy a house, finish my second book (and edits on the first), celebrate 3 years of marriage and my first year as a manager at work.
So I have tried a couple of different ways of resolving to resolve. I've made goals, I've set themes, I've NOT made goals. I can honestly say I do not know what works best for me. At the moment I can't see my way out of my little raincloud to decide what I want to do.
The skies will clear soon. I hope.
