I’ve been gone for a while! Here’s an update on the goals I posted on January 1st.
The short version: IT'S GOING TERRIBLY!
The longer version:
1. Write 365,000 words: I currently only have 103,068 words in. I’m running about 109,000 behind.
2. Finish Hive Five: Not even close. I’m about 22 chapters into what I think will run about thirty chapters and those 22 are far from final drafts.
3. Read 104 books: I’m currently at 29 books
4. Have 50 patrons (at the same time): The strategy here was to produce weekly videos and establish a YouTube presence. First I didn’t have enough time because of school. Then I was done with school and no longer had free access to Adobe products through the school. So, that strategy is going nowhere. I seem to have one more patron than I started the years with though, so, technically, I’m going in the right direction (hey, I’ll take whatever progress I can get).
5. Weigh 225 pounds (and don’t get heavier after I do): I think I’ve actually gained weight since the beginning of the year, but I’m not giving up yet. I might even try this time.
6. Write 52 blog posts on The One-Thousand: We’re in August and this is post number six!
7. Get my A.A. in English: I succeeded!
Well, I’ve got a lot of work to do. Better get to it!
